As a founding member of the prestigious Traditional Cowboy Artists Association, making quality silver mounted bridle bits and spurs has been a passion of Ernie’s since 1990. His unique style of combining firearms engraving with traditional inlay techniques, along with painstaking attention to detail have set his work apart. With function being the underlying foundation, his heirloom quality pieces have become valued possessions of serious horsemen as well as collectors.
Ernie was honored in 2000 as Spurmaker of the year by the Academy of Western Artists
