Having spent all my life around horses and being a very practical person, it has been a natural path to follow that has led me to set up my business Yorkshire Saddlery Repairs.
I have been a member of Badsworth Hunt Pony Club since I was 5 years old and represented Great Britain in the Pony Club Mounted Games Team in 2002 as well as competing in all other disciplines, showjumping, dressage and eventing.
First I did a Horse Management course at the University of Lincoln, before completing the Cordwainer’s Diploma in Saddlery at Capel Manor College in Enfield, London, where I was also awarded the national prize, the Worshipful Company of Loriners’ Bursary.
(Lorinery is the metalwork involved in the Saddlery and harness making process e.g. buckles, stirrups, bits).
Yorkshire Saddlery Repairs is based at Wood House Farm in Pontefract, where customers can come and see the range of hand made items available and discuss their own requirements.
