Girth Straps


As well as the manufacturing of new leather goods, I also offer a repair service for a range of leather products.  In many cases items of tack that have become worn or broken can be repaired through the replacement of fittings or leather.  Additionally, numerous other leather products can be given a new lease of life through the replacement of worn and damaged stitching, or new straps and buckles. 

The range of possible repairs is too long to list, so illustrated below are examples of the sort of work that can be carried out.  Please note that I do not replace zips in riding boots.  Please contact me with any queries regarding repairs.  I am able to accept repairs by post, but please telephone first as payment may be required in advance.  Please see our terms and conditions regarding repairs.

Saddle Repairs

I undertake a range of repairs on saddles, from the simple replacement of worn stitching to the fitting of new girth straps (illustrated above).  I am not undertaking fitting or re-flocking at the present time.
