Hello. I’m Chuck, and my name is not Charlie – we are both Charles. I started HorseSaddleShop.com in January of 2000. My wife’s father Dale had a small tack store and we worked together to create an online version of it. I grew up in a family that always had horses and did much riding and camping in my lifetime. I served 9 years in the Armed Forces, and after coming back from my deployment, I began HorseSaddleShop.com.
