Tom Balding is the quintessential self-made man. Growing up in Southern California in the 1960s, he taught himself to weld, do carpentry - and ride and train horses. The first company he started made sailboat equipment. After moving to a little plot of land in Wyoming, he started designing and fabricating bits and spurs for his neighbors. His breakout moment came in 1998, when championship competitors started using his bits. Word spread about the handmade quality of Tom Balding bits, and his success soared from there. Today, the Tom Balding brand is an industry leader for craftsmanship and design.
