I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with my refurbished leather 19th Century hat-box. I admire your professional expertise in putting on the new leather side straps and the resourcefulness that you displayed in getting inside the lid to re-stitch the carrying handle; I keep looking at the finished item and I really am extremely pleased with the result. I will recommend you to any of my friends who need saddlery or leatherwork. I’ll be in touch when I have other work for you.

Another thumbs up for Nicola Watson. She is a Master Saddler and is also a sidesaddle rider and competitor. It really helps if the saddler understands the requirements of sidesaddle riding.
