Andrew, Robert and Richard Brydon were brothers who created Brydon Brothers Saddlery. They had early training at the shop of Lichtenberger but decided to open their own saddle shop in 1902 at 239 South Main Street in Los Angeles. While they produced a general line of harness, equestrian equipment and supplies, they are best remembered for their ornate silver mounted cowboy saddles, chaps, and specialty gear. The Brydon shop opened at a time when the movie industry was just getting started. In time William S Hart, Tom Mix, Buck Jones and many other Hollywood cowboy performers became customers of the firm. They clearly established themselves and conventions for fine silver mounted saddles about two decades before Ed Bohlin arrived in Los Angeles. Their saddles are of particularly high quality and were favored by Los Angelenos with status and wealth. They prospered through the early 1930 when Edward H. Bohlin eventually replaced them as the saddlemaker to the stars
