a.k.a. "Leatherman," Proprietor of Double Branch
Saddlery, became interested in the cowboy genre in 1966 at Universal
Studios in California when he worked on the TV show The Virginian.
He has worked as actor, stunt rider coordinator and consultant for
numerous films since those early days of the great westerns.
He got his start building period saddles 13 years ago when he began
renting horses and providing period military saddles to the officers
who command the armies at major Civil War reenactments.
Glidden began riding sidesaddle after spending many years portraying
a 19th century civilian as a amateur historian of the Civil War
period. The sidesaddle she is riding is one that she and Bill
rebuilt. Besides helping with the saddlery, she teaches and
lectures on the fine art of riding aside in the 19th century manner.
It took a year of research to perfect her riding habit.
Graze." Double Branch Saddlery is co-located at
Bill & Deborah's Fiddler's Green Horse Farm outside Columbia,
Tennessee. This picture, taken from their shop at the farm,
captures the peace and serenity of early dawn as three of their
12 horses graze in the morning dew. These horses are used
for riding lessons, trail rides, reenacting and pulling carriages,
but more importantly they are a continual source of enjoyment
