John Rich, who had become close with George Jones, got a big surprise -- George's hand-tooled saddle! I knew George Jones a little have you can hear my interview with him on this wbkr.com website. But, I didn't know George rode horses, or at least had a beautiful saddle. Look!

Isn't it gorgeous? And, I especially like the background bar, fully-stocked and ready for consumption. George lived well!

George's widow Nancy bestowed the fine leather upon John, much to his surprise that he expressed on Twitter.
