Meet your tutor

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.

All our Hands-on Workshops have a limited number of participants to ensure you receive all the assistance and direction you require.
