About Us

Adrian and Sheila of Buttons Saddlery, are celebrating 44 years in business. They started the business in Adrian hard at work1973, progressing from a small mobile/part-time unit to their first small shop area in the two-up two-down houses (then called Edna Cottages) on the Guildford Road at West End. Redevelopment of the buildings changed the small row of houses into a four row shopping parade with offices upstairs.

Buttons moved with the times and expanded with their business. They are now to be found in their own premises; a two-storey unit, with the shop floor on the ground level and the workshops and offices upstairs. They still exhibit at Major County and Agricultural Shows - Royal Windsor, Surrey County, Edenbridge and Newbury (along with many other Horse Shows), Horse Trails, Pony Club Events and Riding Club Horse Shows. In fact, they exhibit at over fifty shows a year including the Olympia International Show jumping Championships at Christmas.

On 1st January 1999 Buttons Saddlery was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen.

Buttons Saddlery workshopAdrian is a Master Saddler who also specialises in saddle-fitting, along with all aspects of special items fitted for both the horse and the rider. The workshops not only cater for making new goods and general repairs, but for special requests; 'Horsey' items along with unusual dog and reindeer harnesses, to many other strange requests.

Another part of the workshop specialises in providing film & TV stunt equipment. Buttons are responsible for provision of most of the approved flying harnesses and stunt equipment in the UK. This includes special effects equipment, props and safety harnesses in leather, nylon and canvas. They have supplied this equipment for over 200 films and TV shows, plus numerous TV commercials. Some of the films they have catered for to date include Superman II, III & IV, Lost in Space and Judge Dredd.

Adrian and Sheila still believe that as well as having a great back up team, their individual attention to their customer's requests plays a great part in their continued business success.
