About the Aldens

Matt Alden, the man behind the tools.


Matt’s parents Dana and Janie Alden of R6 Leather Products, made sure their kids knew the basic tools of the trade to keep things in working order. Matt dabbled in his parents shop on and off throughout the years. His focus stuck more with horse shoeing, riding colts, and roping. A broken leg forced him into some down time and the opportunity to learn from his parents and brother. Now as time passes, he spends less time shoeing and more time in the leather shop. 

When he’s not shoeing or in the leather shop you can find him with his wife, Stephanie ( that’s me writing this). Most of the summer of 2021 was spent working on building our arena. If Matt’s not in the shop, you’re most likely to find him there. Our favorite way to pass time is riding, roping, playing with our dogs, and enjoying our home.

If you have any questions feel free to get in touch with us, we look forward to hearing from you!
