Amayzing Saddlery was started and is run by Laura Simpson, a talented young saddler. She completed her training at Walsall College and then returned home to Scotland to start the new business in 2006.
Winner in 2009 of Best Small Business saddle at the Society of master saddlers competition.
Scottish winner of Best Traditional Business at the Scottish Countryside Alliance Awards 2009.
Amayzing Saddlery is doing very well and growing steadily now including a rug wash and repair. We are soon to start having leather working courses with Tandy Leather for beginners and will be holding more advanced courses in the near future.
Laura's passion for horses has been with her since she was 5 years old and she has had horses of her own since she was 12.
"I love the huge variety of work that we receive," says Laura. "The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the real improvements that the right saddle, properly fitted, makes to both the rider and the horse."
