Thanks for the case - well worth the wait. Very well made.

My saddle was made by Nicola Watson - she did very well in the Master Saddler's competition with it. I've had it just under 2 years and it's great...even when the girth is loose (bad me!) it doesn't move and fits Libby brilliantly thanks to Nicola...Libby is a short coupled warmblood and has a big hind movement so not the easiest for a side-saddle-it's 16 3/4MW. For me, buying new is perfect as I do a bit of everything and I know it's safe and will last (it's also easier to keep clean!)...I've had some lovely older hire side saddles in the past but I am now a convert (unless a 15.5-16inch immaculate condition Owen appears which is unlikely so I will probably be going back to Nicola for a saddle for Libby's little sister, the devil pony when she is ready!)

Thank you for my lovely pouch.

The bag straps are excellent! Thank you again.

Bridle is really great, thank you. Perfect fit, buckles by the eye on the fourth hole down, anyone would think it's been made to measure!

Thanks very much for the straps they are perfect! And at such short notice as well! Well done! Hopefully we'll have the chance to do more work with you and next time with a bit more notice!

I meant to email before to say a big thanks for the bellows they are lovely. My husband has turned a nozzle from wood - they look super now.

I am aware of the high standard of work that Nicola produces. I can commend her standard of work as being a consistent high quality and that her conduct in business as being of an ethical and professional manner.

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.
