Lucy Cushley
Saddlery
Saddlers’ Company
Spring | 2019

The horse world is increasingly aware of the benefits of quality and bespoke-fit saddlery, yet collar making sits on the Heritage Crafts Association’s critically endangered list.

With funding from QEST, Lucy Cushley will take courses across the UK - including at the Saddler’s Den, at the Saddlery Training Centre, with Master Saddler Francis Roche and with Master Collarmaker John McDonald - in preparation for her City and Guilds Level 3 Harness Making exam. On completion, Lucy will become the only collar maker and fully qualified harness maker in Northern Ireland.
