Pollard Bits and Spurs
Quality "Handmade" Work Since 1990
Made to Order
Danny started making bits and spurs late in 1989. By June
1990 he created a full time business using his talents.
Self taught he has established himself with a reputation as a
craftsman of quality with a flair for tradition.Often called "The
Cowboys Spur Maker " his artistic styles range from
"Traditional Texas Style " to "Cowboy Wild."
His knowledge and techniques have been tried and tested,
making him a favorite with performance horsemen and
working cowboys and have earned him numerous repeat
customers. He is most proud of the work he does for his
customers that use their gear on a daily basis.
When you order form Danny you are getting a "True
Handmade" item. Everything is hand built in his shop by him
only, one order at a time.
Unlike the current trend of many other makers he does not
use any premade pieces cut from lasers or water jets. Danny
cuts each piece on his bandsaw. Rowels are hand filed to
give them a distinctive ring. Mountings are hand cut and hand
engraved. Spur bands are shaped to fit your boot width.
Cheek pieces are hand cut and mouthpieces hand formed to
make a bit with the correct balance and weight as needed.
Ask a horseman who rides a Pollard bit and they will tell you
Danny takes pride in building a balanced and comfortable bit
that will assist the horseman in communicating his signals
effectively with the horse.
"I get asked 'Why , based on the quality of your work ,are your prices less than so many other
Well, I feel that there are a lot of makers that are way over priced! Some sell you on the idea
that the higher their price is the better they are. That seldom holds true!
Except for the materials and electricity that I use I have no overhead in my business so I pass
the savings on to my customers. I am not one of those makers that try to bleed every dollar out
of a customer that I can."
"I use the best materials in my work and have always strived to improve what I do."
