About Us

Old Mill Saddlery is proudly a leading equestrian retailer based in the United Kingdom. The strengths of our business come from our core values which are to provide our customers with a quality shopping experience, outstanding customer care and selling only quality products at excellent value.

Old Mill Saddlery started out in 1985, when our Managing Director Robert Patton spotted a niche for supplying, manufacturing and repairing horse wear and tack. Robert has an extensive background with horses, show jumping ponies from the age of ten and moving on to point-to-point riding at sixteen. Robert was lucky enough to win a Northern Championship in 1999.

Robert still remains very active within the business, overseeing every aspect of the company and providing an extremely attentive saddle fitting service. You can read more about our saddle fitting services here.

Over the past number of years we have gone from strength to strength, always keeping to our core values of quality, customer care and value for money. In 2008 we opened the doors of our superstore based in Ballycarry, County Antrim which gave us the opportunity to display our extensive range of horse, rider and pet wear.

Our business has continued to expand and in 2015 we constructed a second warehouse to accommodate our extensive range of stock which hosts a range of equestrian brands including Ariat, Horseware, Samshield, Freejump, Mountain Horse, Dubarry, Caldene, Toggi, Equine America, Horse First and Pikeur to name but a few.

Our Brand

Our Brand

Just as the business began, we still continue to manufacture our range of own brand products, selecting only the finest quality materials to bear our prestigeous brand name.

Some of the core products which we manufacture by hand include;

  • The Old Mill Race and Race Exercise saddles which are used by leading jockeys and trainers all over the world
  • The ProCush whip, invented and patented by our MD Robert Patton. The ProCush whip is the only whip approved by the British Horse Racing Authority for racing due to its unique shock absorbing properties, making it kinder to the horse. ProCush whips are manufactured in our workshop and can be personalised a variety of different ways – find out more here.
  • All types of racing equipment including race girths, weight cloths, jockey colour bags and more
  • Various bespoke leather work such as lead reins, martingales, training aids and more

We've always been a forward thinking, highly innovative company and we're always thinking of new ideas and ways of doing things which will aid the horse and horse owner.
