John of All Trades

Since the Art of a Cowboy show seeks to highlight many aspects of the ranching and cowboy lifestyle, Steve travelled to Minco, Oklahoma to meet up with his longtime friend and fellow artist, John Rule. Affectionately know as 'John of Many Trades' by his friends, he is not only a rancher, but also an accomplished saddle maker, sculptor, and artist. During the show, Rule explains why saddles are designed as they are and demonstrates some of the intricacies of making saddles for working cowboys. This show gives a behind-the-scenes peek at how one of the most important tools used by working cowboys and ranchers is made.
