After 37 years in the saddlery business, Abbey is always looking for new ways to support our customers and the saddlery trade. This year, with the support of the Worshipful Company of Saddlers, we are very excited to announce our new initiative at BETA International 2019. The Abbey England Pavilion will showcase the skills and saddlery craftsmanship that are available in the UK today. The stand will see 11 exhibitors promote the very best of British Saddlery to both domestic and international buyers.

In our very last letter from Rachel, she looks back over 2018 and tell us how her scholarship prize has helped her along the way. From everyone at Abbey we have throughly enjoyed keeping up to date with Rachel's progress and we're excited to see where her future takes her.
This month Rachel addresses a questions she is commonly asked, what is the difference between a saddler and a saddle fitter? She brings clarity to the definition.
Selecting the right leather for the job is a crucial element to any saddlers work but with so many types and weights available, confusion can occur.
