Elevating The Legacy of The Traditional Cowboy Arts

The Traditional Cowboy Arts Association is dedicated to preserving and promoting the skills of saddlemaking, bit and spur making, silversmithing and rawhide braiding and the role of these traditional crafts in the cowboy culture of the North American West.


The members of the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association regrettably announce that due to the widespread COVID-19 pandemic currently gripping the nation the 2020 TCAA Show and Sale scheduled for October 2 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City has been canceled. This includes the Braiding Workshop that was to be held during the week leading up to the show. Our paramount concern is for the health, safety and wellbeing of our patrons, members and guests. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming you back to The Cowboy to celebrate western craft and culture in October 2021!
