About us

tmtoosign_cropSince 1994, we have believed in providing great customer service and excellent product quality combined with an enjoyable shopping experience. With time comes wisdom. After 25 years of retailing saddles, bridles and other horse equipment, we have decided now to focus on just what we enjoy the most – leather work.

We know horses love to break things and we have the skills, the knowledge and the tools to mend them. All repairs are hand or machine stitched as required for the best result. If you need something completely custom-made, come and discuss your ideas with us and we’ll see if we can create them for you.

If your older saddle is your favourite friend but needs a little “pick-me-up” to better serve you and your horse, we are able to completely reflock it and do almost any repairs. Need new billets? No problem. We custom make them to match your saddle then handsew them on.

Our lifelong love of dogs combined with our leathercraft has lead to another part of our business. As well as making beautiful collars and leads for your pets, we also produce those items designed specifically for the requirements of particular breeds and or canine activities. We have enjoyed a lasting association with the London Police Canine Unit and are always expanding our dog product line.

Recently, we have been adding some completely new ideas to the products and services available. “My Carlisle Kitchen” is where you will be able to find artisan baked goods, sweet and savoury jams and other handmade novelty items. 

At our shop, we are open 7 days a week but maintain flexible hours to best accommodate the busy schedules of our customers. We hope you enjoy shopping with us!
