Founder and Developer of Horse-Craft Products™, Joe Arnold is a third generation Phoenician. Attending Madison #1 Elementary School, North High School and Arizona State University, he began roping in his early teens, quickly becoming an accomplished Header and Heeler.
He found that every boot he used while roping would tear and fall apart. He came upon a boot from England that fit his needs, but the cost to import was too great and the company went out of business, leaving Joe without a reliable boot. He spent many years finding the correct rubber formula, and started Horse-Craft Products™ in 1972, manufacturing Coolback™ Saddle Pads, custom rope bags, soft sided western luggage, rodeo sunscreens and eventually the signature Premium Red Pull-On Bell Boots and Dally Wraps, which Horse-Craft Products™ offers today.
Joe is a Charter Member of the Verde Vaqueros, Ranchero’s Visitadores and a Lifetime member of the Maricopa County Mounted Sheriff Posse. Fun fact: Joe roped daily in to his late 70s. To date, Joe shares his passion for his business with his family, all based in Arizona.
