Howdy, Partners! Welcome to our collection of leather products, fancy duds and decorative doodads.

You’re in the right place if you’re looking for handmade saddles, tack, fine leather clothing, leather decorative items, and various other useful and attractive leather products, all of which we’ve been making since…well, so long we can’t rightly recall.

Some of our fine leather products are aimed at making you and your horse as comfortable as possible, other items are right useful even to city folks with maybe an affection for western cowboy decor. Our simple Pocket Lead, for example, could be used to help you handle a horse, but you could just as well use it as an attractive dog leash. Or you might want a pair of cowboy chaps to wear while riding your motorcycle, like Jackie does…

You’ll also find information on making your own leather products, suppliers and such…and a bit of history about us and our ranch in western Colorado.

Outfittin’ the West for over 100 Years and 5 Generations.

F.M. Light & Sons is Steamboat Springs’ historic clothing store and is a special place where customers enjoy a step back into the old west while browsing among many original fixtures from one hundred years ago. Outfitting the West since 1905, F.M. Light & Sons is the oldest retail store in the area and is still owned and operated by the fourth generation of Lights, Ty and Del Lockhart. Their great grandfather, F.M. (Frank) Light, came to Steamboat Springs in 1905 from Hicksville, Ohio with his wife and seven children, deciding this was the spot he wanted to make his future home.

F.M. Light & Sons has remained at its original location at 830 Lincoln Avenue for for over one hundred years. One might wonder why F.M. Light & Sons continues in business. There is a certain tradition to keep alive – not just from a personal standpoint, but for other people as well. There’s a certain sense of nostalgia about coming to Steamboat Springs and stopping at F.M. Light & Sons. Some customers return because they can remember seeing one of the Light brothers calling on their parents at the ranch in a panel truck and the excitement they experienced when packages arrived in their mail boxes a few days later. This is a par of our western heritage. The store has a certain sentimental connection with it clientèle. It is comforting to old time customers to know the store is still doing business in its original location by the same family. It is equally comforting to the Lockharts to have long time friends and customers stop in to say hello.
