Burns is the oldest same family owned western retail business in the world. Miles Lamonie Burns, cowboy, fine leather craftsman, blacksmith, musician, husband, father, and visionary, founded Burns in 1876. Since its beginning, Burns has sought to embody and capture the spirit of the West by embracing hard work, custom craftsmanship, and creativity. Each of the Burns companies strives to hold true to those values as we provide everything for the horseman, fine luxury western-inspired products, and quality equine events.
