Welcome to Jones Leather and Livestock!

We are Randy, Kim, Reata, Rhett & Kaehl Jones. We have a lot of passion in our life and love to spend time with each other, our extended family and doing many different things. We have our business for fun: to share what we enjoy with others.

Randy trains our own horses, builds saddles and is a great roper. He is a very active person. He trains our horses in his own Montana-made-style (Californios influenced): starts colts in a halter, then snaffle, hackamore, 2-rein and finishes them in a bridle. Our horses are selected for performance. We do not raise horses, but our idea is that he trains them to do whatever we want to do: ride, rope, work cows, even dressage or polo if we are so inclined. The horses that he trains are very sensitive and light to ride. His saddles are mostly wades with a few association-types. He loves to be creative and tool, carve, and design saddles. His biggest passion is probably roping, though: he gets to use his horses and his saddles to have some fun!

I (Kim) am a busy mom; I have 3 kids, 3 and under. My. kids are very active and keep me on my toes. I cook, clean, garden, play the guitar, sing, write, rope, take pictures, and thrive off of spending time with my family.

Reata loves to ride. She would ride her horse all day if she could. She is 3, but is already loping on her horse, Honey Bunny, in the arena by herself. We have nicknamed Reata the Border Collie Dog. If you are unfamiliar with border collies, let me explain: high energy, moving all the time, in trouble if they don't have a focus, very loving and sweet.

Rhett is a lover and his nickname is Ham. He is cute and he knows it. He loves to wear his jeans, boots and cowboy hat like his dad, but he is really a mama's boy. He tries to keep up with Reata and does a pretty good job! He loves riding his stick horse and bucking himself off. He loves anything horse related and has a collection of small horses that he plays with everyday.

Kaehl has just learned to crawl and is standing up by himself. He wants to be part of the action at all times.

This blog is to share with you, our Montana lifestyle. We hope that you learn some tips to better your horse handling, learn more about wade saddles, try new recipes, enjoy our fun adventures, and get to experience the modern Cowboy Lifestyle through us!
