Nevada also founded an online school to learn the Western Trades called Be A Maker School.

Jeremiah Watt


Jeremiah is entering his 48th year as both a saddlemaker and silversmith and has been self-employed for 35 of those years.

Within two years of when Jeremiah began his craft as a saddle maker, he began adding silversmithing and the metal skills of a bit and spur maker to his skills.

Apart from a nearly eight-year apprenticeship as a saddle maker, Jeremiah is self-taught in all other skills acquired. Jeremiah and his wife Colleen spent five years working on remote chuckwagon jobs on various ranches across the West. One of Jeremiah’s beliefs is that no skill is complete without the knowledge gained from using and testing the gear that you put your name on.

Jeremiah loves to build one of a kind bridle bits and has spent a lot of time understanding the mechanics behind a pretty bit. It has to be functional first then artistic.  He enjoys teaching and sharing with those who love to learn. He is a new “Grandpa” and thoroughly enjoys the role and can’t wait for more grandkids. Cycling, especially distance cycling and wild camping have become an avid passion, usually making one long trip every other year.
