"Lozano’s robust softened rawhide hobbles are fabricated with Shorthorn hide from his ranch. The rawhide is in two layers and features imbedded rawhide stitching on the inside for durability and to protect the horse. The outside features a decorative high relief stitching.

The centerpiece incorporates a metal ring inlaid with silver, designed and fabricated by Ernie Marsh. The metal ring is secured in place between the softened cowhide and the braided rawhide. The French grey finish of the metal ring serves as a frame and contrast with a central gaucho button and is flanked by one gaucho button on each side. The 8-plait round braid and fancy button closure ensures the hobbles strength and functionality."

Born in Buenos Aires, Pablo Lozano’s family tradition is tied to Argentina’s cattle heritage. At age 15 he began studying rawhide braiding with his mentor, the late Don Luis Alberto Flores. A career rawhide braider, Lozano believes in the concept of apprenticeship as a means to educate and preserve traditional arts. He has been awarded Best of Show several times at the Sociedad Rural Argentina and is a member of their panel of judges. Lozano frequently participates in braiding seminars and workshops in the United States, and was awarded the 2015 Braider of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists.
