Monturas Artesanas de Talavera is a small but amazing workshop specialized in the production of traditional saddles for horseback riding, especially the “Potrera” and “Española” saddle styles, as well as bridles and other items. They work only with natural and ecological leather.
Today’s Monturas Artesanas was previously known as the Lucas company, which operated for 40 years and became well known across Spain and even internationally in Europe until the recent economic crisis forced Lucas to cease operations. Several of the key Lucas artisans reorganized under new management and now continue production with the same historical craft and quality as always. In fact, Monturas Artesanas is the only workshop in Spain that still create saddles using a patented flexible saddle system with the traditional Lucas brand name.
The master artisans at Monturas Artesanas don’t think of their products only as exquisitely crafted items made from the finest leathers and materials. Instead, they always refer to their products as “small works of art.”
