Explore the West - Wilson Capron
TCAA Bit and Spur Maker-Wilson Capron
Wilson grew up in far West Texas, where his family was involved in the ranching industry. During Wilson’s high school years, the family ranched 150,000 acres with about 1,000 mother cows. It was here that he developed an appreciation for horsemanship and the skills of a cowboy.

Wilson’s work is truly second to none, the amount of detail and personality put to each piece is what makes is more than just bits & spurs and transforms it into a work of art.
Out of all the artist that I have in my collection Wilson Capron is second to none. There’s no other human that I’ve ever seen they can do the craftsmanship and engraving like he can. His stuff it’s like owning something out of the Smithsonian.

Wilson did such a special job for us on all our silver. We are so fortunate to own some of his work. Or should I say art.
David Brown~Red River Crossing Gainesville,Texas
Wilson has somehow managed to blend an obvious respect for the history and traditions of his craft with a superb eye for lines and innovation, all the while bringing bit and spur making to a level seldom if ever attained by anyone.
