The Saddler – No. 28
Beside the beautiful rolling hills of the Curragh, Co. Kildare is the long-established family firm of Berney Brothers, led by 82 year-old Tom Berney. They have been making saddles, bridles for racing, hunting, show jumping, dressage, and eventing for 120 years. The film follows the traditional skills involved in making these items from good, strong leather for quality and longevity. Berney Brothers are still making saddles and related products to this day. Made in 1981.
