Wilson Capron grew up in far West Texas with a family background in ranching. He is the son of Mike and Anne Capron of Sheffield, TX and a brother to Liz Capron of Ft. Worth, TX. He graduated from Fort Davis High School in 1992 and from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1996 with a degree in Ag-Business. That same year, he began to apprentice under bit and spur maker Greg Darnall. Wilson's unique designs also stem from the influence of his father, a cowboy artist!
Today, Wilson lives in Christoval, Texas, with his wife Katy, and their daughters Macy and Emmy, where his interest in horsemanship and roping continue to contribute to his art as a bit and spur maker.
