From an abandoned trailer house to a quality show room and shop, for 30 years Tom Balding has proved that quality is the benchmark for his success.
Tom Balding Bits and Spurs is recognized world-wide and Balding has earned a reputation as the finest craftsman of bits and spurs. Producing more than 4000 bits and spurs each year, top horsemen around the world request his work, all handmade, piece by piece. He describes his products.
Realizing he was going to need help if he ever was going to get a break, there came a time to hire on help.
Five full-time employees now work for Balding and each one is like family, he said, committed to quality work.
Balding's future plans are pretty simple...keep learning and stay committed to quality craftsmanship.
Saturday, an open house and free barbecue was held at the shop, commemorating his 30 years in business.
