Our Awards

We are proud to be an award-winning saddlery recognised by our industry for both the quality of our saddles and leadership in shaping the direction and future of saddle making.  

2020: At the beginning of 2020 the saddle awards rolled in. In January we won the Highly Commended Award in the Technology category at BETA International 2020, for Build My Baines, our digital saddle builder that makes customising a saddle easy.  In February our newly launched Operetta Dressage saddle won three prestigious awards in the Society of Master Saddlers 2020 National Competition. It won Bruce Emtage Memorial Plate for Best Overall Entry out beating 129 other entries entries, The English Astride Saddle Award, and the Neil McCarraher Trophy for Most Attractive and Commercially Viable Saddle.

2019: In 2019 six of our saddle makers were finalists and winners in The Best Made Saddle Competition, held by the Worshipful Company of Saddlers. Frank was a previously a judge for this prestigious competition for over 20 years. The company has won the Best New Product Award at the British Equestrian Trade Association Show and at Spoga Horse in Germany, we won European Export Awards putting us firmly on the international stage.

We are members of the Society of Master Saddlers where Frank was a past president.   In 1990 Frank was presented with Freedom of the City of London and in 1992 he was made a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Saddlers with Garry gaining the same accolade in 2014 followed by Victoria in 2020. Frank was also proudly commissioned to make a saddle for the Princess Royal.
