The Saddler’s Post – Lucy Cushley

Christian Lowe 1 September 2023 2756 126 4


Background
share close

Saddlers & leather workers from around the world join host Christian Lowe to share stories and secrets on the leather trade and the art and life of making, repairing, and selling saddles and other equipment for horses.

Lucy Cushley is the saddler who makes more than saddles. After a lifetime of working with horses (and being accompanied by dogs) in 2016 Lucy travelled to Enfield, London, to study for two years at Capel Manor College, one of the last places to study saddlery full time.

Since returning to Co Down in Northern Ireland, Lucy has continued to develop her skills in saddlery and leatherwork, regularly traveling to Britain to undertake further qualifications and training from Masters. Their mentorship, alongside support from a number of societies and trusts, has meant that she is able to continue to supply her customers with bespoke, luxury items of leatherwork and saddlery. For well loved or damaged items, Lucy provides a repair/refurbishment service to give items a renewed lease of life.

It is these traditional skills, and high quality materials which let your bespoke commissions come to life. From bridles, bags, collars to home furnishings, working on new, exciting designs, we are always excited to bring your ideas to life.
