I found a saddle made by Rufus Sarson of Gunnison,the harness maker not the saddle maker. Very well made. I have spoken with a couple of old timers that knew Rufus and "Mrs. Sarson" as she was called. Rufus always wore white cuffs even with a short sleeved shirt, and Minnie was thought of as very strict by the then young boys that I spoke with. Rufus was well known and liked by the local ranchers because he was the first and only guy in Gunnison to have a harness dipping tank, which saved hours and hours of unlacing and relacing harnesses. There is now a steak restaurant where his store used to be on the 100 block of N Main St.
