Nicola Watson; an award-winning Master Saddler in East Sussex.


I ride two horses, my own Sprayswater’s Jest (known as Jester at home), and my mother’s Bobby McGee. Jester competes successfully in dressage classes and Bobby competes both astride and under side saddle. I use an Owen style side saddle made by myself, and wherever possible use bespoke bridlework and tack made in my workshop.


As an experienced competitor and a Master Saddler with 16 years working experience  I know equestrian tack from all angles, and can advise on all aspects of saddlery and fitting from a knowledgeable, expert yet personal stance.


Please contact me to see more of my work, and to see how you and your horse can benefit from my handmade saddlery.

I am writing to say how pleased I am with the refurbishment of my "Gamebird" shooting stick. It looks better than new. Well done!
