FAMILY RUN, ENGLISH QUALITY, MADE-TO-MEASURE
Established in 1988, we are a father and son team, Keith and Ian Jenkin, plus our saddler Ted Lawrence who was apprenticed to Champion and Wilson of London in 1956. As holders of the Royal Warrant, they carried out work for the Royal Mews and were regarded as the leading saddlery firm in the UK.
With Keith based in east Kent and Ian in London, we cover between us the whole of the South East of England, supplying and fitting saddles that are both made to measure and guaranteed to fit.
Moreover, because we sell only saddles, we are saddle experts, and because of the experience and expertise of our saddler, our after sales service is second to none. Most importantly, should your horse change shape, we will modify your saddle to fit the new shape.
We are often asked how we are able to supply saddles at such competitive prices. This is because we prefer dealing with individual craftsmen, all ex senior saddlers who have left the employment of one of the old established firms to set up in business on their own. Consequently, they have the advantage of being excellent and experienced craftsmen with very low overheads. Unlike the bigger, wellknown firms, they have no wages bill, no literature, no advertising, no expensive premises and some are not even VAT registered. The result is a first class product at very competitive prices, which we are able to pass on to our customers. In any event, we find that very few customers actually specify a particular brand. Their main concern is to obtain a saddle that fits both them and their horse to perfection at a price they can afford.
