The History Behind 'The Western Shop'

After the sad death of Brian Carter of Heathlands Western in 2003 we brought out the Western Saddlery Shop.

Starting from such a great foundation we have carried on in much the same vein.  We still stock the Brands that Brian and Anne carried at the beginning, These lines were expanded as the business grew.  We have added more quality lines over the last two years, with more on the way.

We hold all the items on the website in stock (except for bespoke items which are made to order) but as things are going out daily sometimes we can run short of a colour or size.  However, stock is rapidly replenished from the USA.  

We have a simple philosophy of keeping only 'tried and tested quality merchandise' and if we would not use it ourselves, then we won't sell it to you. 

The Future

In January 2012, Fiona Powley joined the business and in March 2013 she took over the 'Split Reins' following the previous owners retirement and is commited to carrying on the tradition of great quality products and excellent customer service.
