1987 – Pastures new and royal connections
As the company continued to grow the Saddlery moved to bigger premises in Northcote Street, where it remains today. Awards continued to roll in and in 1988, for the first time The Worshipful Company of Saddlers awarded high honours to 3 saddlers from the company. Frank for Master Saddler of the Year, and saddlers Keith and Jeremy taking second and third prizes for craftsmanship. Shortly afterwards Frank was appointed to The Committee of the Society of Master Saddlers. Frank was also honoured to be commissioned to make a saddle for the Royal Tournament, which was later presented to Badminton Horse winner Ian Stark by HRH Princess Anne. The Saddlery also expanded their range by launching their first bridle work collection.
