Jim Harwell lives with his wife Judy in Prairie Grove, Arkansas on a lovely farm amidst the rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains.  Jim graduated from Outlaw Saddlery School in 1996.  His favorite saddle to make and to ride is the old-time half-seat or buckaroo saddle.  Jim also enjoys making other working cowboy gear and accessories such as chaps, chinks, saddle bags, breast collars, etc.

Jim builds a custom saddle for the comfort and needs of horse and rider. His saddles are made on a wood, rawhide covered tree with quality U.S. tanned leather and handcrafted workmanship.  Jim has made saddles for trail horses, roping and reining, and cutting horses. His saddles have gone to various locations including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, West Texas, Montana, and Austria.

Jim and his wife Judy moved to Shumate Crossing 2003 where they built the shop which was our living quarters and saddle shop until construction was completed on our house in 2005.

Jim and Judy have five horses and enjoy trail riding.
