Heritage Bespoke Saddles, The Custom Made English Saddle Co'.
STOCKPORT, Cheshire, SK4 4EU
Heritage is a family business that have been supplying the trade and the public with high quality English saddlery and tack for generations.
We supplied the Persian army in 1971 (To mark the 2,500th anniversary of the Persian monarchy when our own queen visited), supplied Polo saddles to Indian Maharajahs, film stars and many celebrities.
We also made and supplied all the saddles, bridles and harness (when we were called Global Saddle Co'') to Paramount pictures for the multi-million pound movie King David, Starring Richard Gere and Edward Woodward in 1984.
All of our saddles and tack are produced in Walsall England. The true home of high quality saddlery.
We only use the very finest quality English leathers and suedes and all our products are made by the some of England''s best saddlers to the very highest standards.
Matthew now runs the family business and is the company saddle fitter, something he has been doing for over 25 years. He was trained from leaving school by his father who, until his recent retirement, was involved in the business for 65 years.
Matthew''s Great Grandfather, Matthew''s mother''s Grandad, Joseph Thickett was the Mayor of Walsall from 1923.
Interestingly Marlow Street in Walsall (see photo) is the site of Matthew''s great great Gradfather''s premises many moons ago and highlights the influence and history the Marlow family have had in the town over many years in the saddlery industry.
In fact there are large blown up photographs (like the one of our old factory above) in the saddlery museum, in Walsall, that were taken of our workshops and saddlers years ago and I can supply you with copies if you are interested in seeing them.
Matthew is a time served, proper saddle fitter. He has fitted 1000''s of horses in his long career and awkward shaped horses are his speciality. He will travel to you wherever you are in the UK or Europe to measure your horse/horses and will offer priceless advice and guidance. We will then Custom make you a saddle that will fit you and your perfectly.
Matthew does not turn up with a van full of saddles and leave after selling you a saddle that doesn''t really fit. Neither will he go away and find a saddle that is already made to then tell you it was custom made for you!
All our Custom made saddles are just that, lovingly custom made from scratch, for you and your horse''s unique shape.
We make all styles of saddles and specialise in Show, Working Hunter saddles, General Purpose, Cross Country/ Eventing Saddles, Dressage, Endurance and many styles of close contact /mono-flap jumping saddles.
We also offer a custom made bridle and tack service too for those horses with outsize, small and awkward shaped heads. Girths, leathers, Bridles, Stud Guards and all other related items can be made specially for you and your horse.
