After receiving over 50 applications across 11 countries, the winner of Abbey England’s 2019 Saddlery Scholarship was announced last week at BETA International.
Lucy Cushley, a 26 year old saddlery student from Northern Ireland received the £500 prize at BETA’s award ceremony on Sunday 20th January. Having grown up around horses, Lucy has always been interested in saddlery and tack since she was a small child and has a true passion for good craftsmanship and working with leather.
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.
