The Worshipful Company of Saddlers is one of the very oldest of the City of London Livery companies. The earliest surviving records of a Guild of Saddlers in London date from circa 1160 AD, although the guild could well pre-date that.
Today, the Saddlers’ Company still has a close interest in, and involvement with, its original trade. This is exemplified in its support of the Society of Master Saddlers, its leadership of the development of saddlery training standards, its support of saddlery trainees and apprentices through bursaries, awards and prizes, and its promotion of British saddlery.
The Company supports almost all disciplines of British equestrianism, concentrating on younger and emerging riders, through the award of saddlery prizes and vouchers at a broad range of equestrian competitions across the country. It aims to promote the use of good British saddlery by good British riders of all ages and experience.
