After he  left school, he spent a time  up to Intermediate level whilst  running a livery and training yard.     He started his saddlery  career in 2000 after he had a ‘difficult’ horse’s saddle checked by a  master saddler and noticed immediately an improvement in the horses way  of going. He decided this was something he wanted to pursue and learn  more about.  James started his 4 year apprenticeship at Gawthorpe Saddlers,  Hampshire and then moved to further his skills with Adrian Benge at  Buttons Saddlery, Chobham.

After completing his Millennium  Apprenticeship Scheme and the extensive training courses at the Society  of Master Saddler’s Saddlery Training Centre; James received his  certificates in  bridle, saddle and harness making.
