    We are accepting orders through the web-shop, but please be aware, that with continued Covid related disruption to normal manufacturing, you will often need to wait for much longer than our normal to receive some products.   We have no control over this. 😕

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! 

If you decide to order,  and get onto the waiting list, we will be doing our best to get your goods to you as quickly as we are able to. 

We cannot always supply goods within the lead times mentioned in our normal Terms. 

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

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.
