Workshop

             

Barton Saddlers have our own in-house workshop where our qualified society of master saddlers staff make bespoke and repair a wide range of leather work from bridles, harness, reins, browbands and a full range of equestrian products.

We also design and make bespoke dog collars, pet and general leather work.
