Teddy Lancaster replied with the following message. I knew that Hook of
Hook's Saddlery had semi-retired, but didn't know about the shop's name
change. I was there a few years ago to see the new owner's work and it
is quite good. I believe that the fellow had worked for Hook for some
time before taking over the shop. Rumor has it that Mr. Hook is still
making some saddles personally - I guess retirement got boring. Thanks
ofr the update, Teddy!
