About The Custom Cowboy Shop

Our Story

Thirty years ago, Don Butler first formed "Butler's Custom Leather" to make ends meet in a difficult cattle market. From the earliest beginnings, the store was focused on providing quality custom saddles and small leather goods on a custom order basis. The store, as it became, started in the back of a barber shop to provide locals with custom saddlery, repair and basic "cowboy" necessities. The store later moved several times before landing in the old Rex Hotel in downtown Sheridan. In 1990, the Cody, Wyoming location was added and continues in the same location today. The Sheridan location closed to retail in 2000 but the Cody Store continues to provide the same quality custom saddlery, repair and basic "cowboy" necessities and has an added selection of hats, men's and ladies apparel and home and ranch decor.

What has not wavered in the last thirty years is our commitment to providing the best quality cowboy equipment on the market. We are proud to still offer a full service custom saddlery as well as stock some of the finest hats, jewelry, clothing, etc. Our specialty is traditional cowboy gear and equipment geared toward the working cowboy. We pride ourselves in offering an array of "USA Made" products as well.

Thanks for visiting us on line and if you are in the area, stop by and say "Hi". We'd love to meet you!

How to Choose a Ranch Rope

We offer 4 types of our long 60’ Ropes.
The 5/16" XXXS is our softest of our ropes. It is a nice light rope with a lot of play. It is a little light for roping in strong wind areas.
The 3/8" XXXS is a bit heavier. While still a lively rope, it offers a bit more weight than the 5/16".
The 5/16" XS with the red tracer is a great rope with a good weight and the 5/16" diameter makes it a little easier to fit in smaller hands or those not used to the extra coils.
The 3/8" XS is our beefiest rope we offer. It has a great weight and is our recommendation for beginners or for ropers who are used to regular waxed team roping ropes. As for Hondas, the metal Hondas are both quicker than the Rawhide. Great for roundpen work or when you need your rope to close quicker. They will wear a rope out a little faster than the Rawhide Hondas. Our best selling Rawhide Honda is our Popsicle Honda with the neck. Second best seller is the San Juan. If roping bigger livestock, the folded is our stoutest.
