Join Churchill Fellow Bob Edwards, who has been a local saddler for over 50 years for this two-day workshop and create your own leather bridle.
At the end of the weekend, you will have completed your own custom piece.
Bob is one of the few master harness makers in Australia. He became the first employee and apprentice at Toowoomba Saddlery in 1969. He has manufactured harnesses for all sizes of horses and levels of competition, from work harnesses to patent leather harnesses suited for show or dressage. Bob is also the recipient of a Churchill fellowship, and a champion coach driver, having competed for Australia in the World Equestrian Games in 2006.
