My Col­lec­tion

Horse & Rider - - Contents -

Unique pieces cre­ated by close friends and tools that’ve helped achieve world cham­pi­onship titles are some of the items you’ll see in this ac­claimed far­rier’s work­shop. His col­lec­tion in­cludes an as­sort­ment of far­ri­ery tools made by leg­endary crafts­men, in­clud­ing Jay Sharp; Shane Carter; Jim Poor; and Mil­ster’s per­sonal men­tor, Jim Keith.

“The ham­mer sec­ond to the left was the tool I used to win a world cham­pi­onship at the 2001 Cal­gary Stam­pede,” he shares. “If you look close enough, you’ll see the last nail used in that com­pe­ti­tion is still in the ham­mer.” In 2004, Mil­ster went back to Cal­gary and took home a cham­pi­onship win in forg­ing. That re­sulted in the one-of-a-kind tro­phy ham­mer on the far left, cre­ated by Sharp and Carter.
