Paul’s Saddle Shop was formed in 1991 by Paul A. Wiedeman.

Paul was a Baton Rouge police officer for 28 years. 20 years were spent in the K-9 department while the last 8 years he worked his way to captain. He was well respected in the city and loved his job. In his spare time he would catch cows that would get out of fences and return them to their home. Paul retired from the force in 1991.

He saw a demand in the local leather industry. Always trying to find someone who could repair his saddles in a good, timely manor was a difficult task. He started to mess with leather as an hobby quickly turning it into a business. Opened a retail shop performing saddle repairs and selling tack. Word of mouth grew his business quickly and kept him busy.

Paul’s only grandson, Austin Morris grew up spending nearly every day with his grandpa. They started to rodeo every weekend and work around the farm in their spare time. Growing up, he would have Austin perform some leather tasks. Little did he know that Paul was teaching him the dying art of leather craft.

November 2011 at age 69, Paul suddenly passed. Austin was the only one in the family that had anything to do with the leather business. He quickly took over full time to resume the business. Austin married Sarah and together they worked to grow the business into online retail. The name AP Saddlery came from Austin-Paul so that Austin could always remember the reason the business exists today.

Today AP Saddlery is shipped WORLD wide and our products have become very popular. We work very hard to continuously improve the function and quality of every product we offer. We gladly listen to all comments and work our tails off to make sure our customers are taken care of. We personally guarantee every item we sell. Thank you for the opportunity to exceed all expectations!
