Abbey England was founded in 1982 as Abbey Saddlery by Gerald Brown and we are still a family-owned firm rooted in traditional values. A market leading wholesale supplier of premium British made materials and tools, our comprehensive product range covers high quality English leathers, leather tools, hardware, webbing and outdoor textiles. We work closely with British manufacturers to meet the demand for traditional tools like knives, races, awls, needles, hole punchers, hammers and trimming implements. Abbey England also distributes Stubbs stable and tack room equipment, Fiebing’s horse and leather care products and Grangers rug-proofing products.
As well as supplying saddlers, harness makers and rug makers, we create specialist metalwork for the fashion, motor and refrigeration industries at our foundry based in the Midlands. Specialist premium polymer products are also made at the foundry from UK sourced rubber under the Equus brand. The Equus range includes overreach boots, quarter boots, rein grips, martingale stops and bit guards, amongst other products.
We’re also well known for our wide selection of first rate riding and driving bits, which are made of high quality metal and, unlike most bits manufactured around the world, checked individually. With more than 350 designs we’re firmly at the forefront of the sector.
Abbey England is proud to support a multitude of manufacturing, commercial and leisure businesses in both the UK and abroad.
