Family Legacy Since 1957

Wilkinson's History

I was born in 1982, my grandfather, Weldon Burgoon, traded the doctor a saddle for my hospital bill. He was raised on a farm in Denton Texas and loved all things cowboy.  He grew up during the great depression which essentially started his journey with leather because during that time you had to fix your own stuff. After he graduated high school he was making purses, belts, wallets and saddles. In 1957 he opened Weldon’s Saddle Shop & Western Wear in downtown Denton, Texas. It was a North Texas institution to many folks which eventually landed him into the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame, National Bit & Spur Association Hall of Fame, and recognition by the Texas House of Representatives.
