RIDING TALL: This year’s El Presidente, Dennis Rickard, poses with the saddle his grandfather, James Rickard, had made in the 1920s by renowned saddle maker Luis Ortega and master silversmith John Field. Dennis’s father, John “Jack” Rickard, also used this saddle when he rode in the Fiesta Parade as El Presidente in 1948-49.
