Sankey Saddlery is a small saddle making company based in Kilsyth Glasgow Scotland. Andrew Sankey is a Master Saddler and a member of the The Society of Master Saddlers UK.
Unlike many modern saddle manufacturers, he still works from a cobbler-type shop filled with leather, saddle trees and all the other material needed to build a saddle from start to the finish.
While many saddle makers have gone to using laser cutters and other modern technology, cutting boards and traditional saddle making hand tools are still used.
Now exporting all over the world and in high demand by many professional riders and trainers. All saddles are handcrafted from start to finish which has been a major part to the success of his saddles, quality and attention to detail is of the highest standard.
Andrew is a strong believer that horses should be fitted to the tree and not how a saddle looks on the horse. " I see saddles on horses and know its the wrong tree for the horse, the shape of the head and rails of the tree do not follow the horses profile.
A wooden spring tree will flex but it is still a solid construction made from wood and reinforced with steel. The panel may follow the horses profile but a solid construction of the tree will still cause pressure points across the horse's back and seriously restrict the horses movement and comfort."
