Black Country Saddles

The history of “Black Country”

The “Black Country” is a historical name given to the industrial area of the Midlands around Birmingham which gained its name in the mid-nineteenth century by Elihu Burritt, the American Consul to Birmingham in 1862 who described the area as ‘Black by day and red by night’ due to the smoke from the many thousands of iron working foundries, collieries and forges. Within this area Walsall became the centre of the leather trade given its existence alongside the lime pits which are the key for tanning leather.

There is also a famous but dubious anecdote about Queen Victoria ordering the lowering of the blinds on her carriage as the royal train passed through the area.

Our mission…

We are dedicated to becoming the leader in our market by pursuing the traditional values of quality and service in everything we do, everything we make and everyone we work with – how may we help you?

How to order your saddle

We specialize in custom built saddles, so the majority of the saddles we make here are to order – for a specific client and horse.  Our worldwide dealers are all able to offer a saddle assessment as well as the all important aftercare service.  We work closely with trained and qualified saddle fitters so it is important that you trust and value their advice, experience and expertise.  It is in the interest of their reputation as a BCS specialist to ensure the best possible combination of fit for both horse and rider.  Not every brand of saddle is suited to every horse, so we offer an extensive variety of saddle trees and panels options on all of our models, giving endless options in which to work with. Your saddle fitter will be able to establish the correct tree “frame work” and panel for your horse on which to build your saddle. Then for you the rider any alterations regarding flap length, blocks will be discussed and finally a choice of leather finishes and colours to choose from.

These details along with the templates are sent to the factory and discussions on any particular requirements.  Our manufacturing time is normally within 4 weeks.
