Latest updates from Throstlenest Saddlery

For those of our customers who have paid a visit to our shop recently, you may have noticed we have a lot going on with our summer sale, building work, and with the introduction of some amazing new brands to our saddlery!

We therefore thought it would be great to give you an update on all the exciting things which have happened recently, and give you an idea on what exciting things there are to come!

Building Work?


Something quite impossible to miss is the building work going on in the old barn next to the saddlery! Jayne's horses Hughie and Ernie recently said goodbye to their old stables and have now relocated to some beautiful brand new stables, allowing the builders to make a big open plan space in the barn and start constructing our new project... a cafe!


We have been considering building a cafe for a long time due to high customer demand and are so pleased to announce that it's finally happening! You will now be able to treat yourself to some well earned food and drink after a hard morning of trying to only buy what you need and not accidentally leave with yet another pair of breeches!


We will soon be asking for your opinions on what you would like to see on the menu and will keep you updated on our cafe's opening day! Keep an eye out on our social media!

New brands?

Throstlenest are proud to announce that we are now stockists of Fairfax & Favor and will shortly be stockists of the brand new Holland Cooper Equestrian as of next month! 


Fairfax & Favor


A brand built on friendships and very British-qualities, Fairfax & Favor is a luxury lifestyle brand which has made headlines sponsoring and exhibiting at elite events such as the Badminton horse trials, Rockingham Horse Trials and The Royal Windsor Horse Show.


Fairfax & Favor's love of British style inspired founders Marcus Fairfax Fountaine and Felix Favor Parker to travel from rural Norfolk to the mountains of Spain in search of premium quality and the finest details possible. A lifestyle brand that is more than just shoes and handbags, Fairfax & Favor is a brand described as a way of life.


At our saddlery, we sell a range of Fairfax & Favor's most iconic and popular products including the Regina Boots, the Windsor handbag and the Salisbury purse. Whether you are taking a stroll in the countryside or having a day at the races, Fairfax and Favor can be dressed up or down to give the wearer an effortless sophistication and style.


Holland Cooper


Established in 2008 designer Jade Holland Cooper saw a gap in the market for contemporary tweed wear, and armed with a wealth of design experience, infused with her passion for outdoor pursuits, ensnared and consequently monopolised this market sector. Holland Cooper is now so synonymous with British luxury that it’s recognised instantly in its use of the most superior Scottish woven tweed and wool combined with the finest suede and leather offering luxury tailoring for both men and women.


Alongside its success as a luxury lifestlye brand, Holland Cooper cultivated a huge equestrian following during the past ten years and have proudly dressed some of the world's top riders across all disciplines, albeit in a fashion capacity. 


Following extremely high demand for an equestrian range, Holland Cooper Equestrian materialised; a brand new technical range for both horse and rider. Months of hard work and research has gone into creating this collection and we are extremely privilaged to be stocking this brand as of next month!


Holland Cooper Equestrian will launch on the 16th August 2019.

New Bags?


We are going green(er)


Many of you may be unaware that all of our online orders are shipped out in cardboard boxes which we have recycled from previous deliveries of new stock for our saddlery.


As well of this, we have gone a step further by recently swapping our old carrier bags to new ones made from biodegradable polythene which naturally decomposes!


We love how many of our customers already reuse our carrier bags again and again because of how strong they are, and don't worry because the new bags are just as durable and have environmental benefits!

Summer Sale!


It's that time of year again! Treat yourself to a bargain in our summer sale where we have excellent savings on brands such as Ariat, Dubarry, Weatherbeeta and Spooks.

Saddle / Bridle Fittings



Our saddle fitter David Baxter continues to be as busy as ever with saddle appointments. We are still continuing to do saddle fittings on site as well as location appointments, so don't hesitate to give us a call or email if you have any enquiries or would like to book an appointment.


We have also been doing a lot of on site bridle fittings. Arrange to bring in your horse or pony and one of our staff members will endeavor to fit you with your perfect bridle! We also have staff members who are qualified Fairfax Bridle fitters, so you can ensure to have a professional and qualified member of our team fitting your tack!
