The Western States HORSE EXPO at Fairplex in Pomona, California, will be held November 8-10, 2019.  We will be there for the 3 days and invite you to look for the Hought Fine Art and Leather booth where I will be teaching leather braiding classes. 

There will be one 3 hour class in the morning and one in the afternoon.  Morning sessions are from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM; afternoon sessions are from 2 PM - 5 PM.  Each session is limited to 2 students.

*Upon enrollment either on this page or by phone, 707-599-9493, there will be a $175 fee.  Feel free to enroll in more than one session. 

Materials supplied include pre-cut fully prepared strings and a mandrel, which you will take home.  Tools are supplied.  Bring your braiding questions as well, I will be happy to answer them.

*Are you interested in learning to braid a Bosal?  I would be happy to provide instruction on the noseband and the heel knot, both their groundwork and braiding.  These would be taught in sections and could be a way for you to get started.  Please let me know if you are interested by calling or emailing me to set up these times during the provided sign-up times.  707-599-9493 or hought@hought.com
