Mare’s Leg Holsters
The term “mare’s leg” was actually originally introduced in 1957 in the TV series Trackdown, where Steve McQueen first appeared as a bounty hunter. Steve McQueen and his “mare’s leg” then went on to star in the CBS TV series Wanted Dead or Alive. It aired on CBS for three seasons in 1958–61.
We offer you several designs for your mare’s leg, open or closed boot, with an additional cross-draw holster, knife sheath or anything you want- with a smooth finish, boarder tooling, or full tooling-
Many hours were spent researching these rigs -they are made with 2 layers of leather for strength and durability.
The ‘open’ designs have a metal hook built into holster for the saddle ring to drop onto it and a leather covered steel band to secure the forearm.
