Shop by category

This online shop is open to accept new orders. 

However, please remember that with ongoing disruption to normal manufacturing, you will often need to wait for much longer than normal to receive certain products.   This increased to 5 weeks, towards the end of 2020. 😕

If you decide to order,  and get onto the waiting list, we will be doing our best to get your goods to you ASAP,  but we have no control over delays from the manufacturers and suppliers we use.  

Since January 2021, we have also been dealing with problems in shipping to certain countries in Europe!   All of our paperwork and procedures are correct for the couriers, but customs offices in some countries are making errors and causing delays that we have no control over! 

We apologise for any inconvenience and ask for your understanding in these difficult times.

Of course, this is a dangerous thing to do, because inevitably, we end up spending the time allocated to...

BACK to the FUTURE

Forgotten wisdom from over 100 years ago, is a guide that the saddle industry needs to be using as a foundation for future training.
