With just a week away until I head south to Salisbury to start my first week of saddler training I thought I’d set up this blog to document my training journey.
Initially, I don’t anticipate anyone else other than my friends and family to read it.
However, it will be interesting to read it again in a few years time to remind us of the highs and lows I went through to retrain and eventually change career.
Already Made A Bridle
After reading the City and Guilds booklet, I believe that I will be making a stable head collar that will be assessed for the Level 2 Bridle making exam.
I have already made a full-sized bridle, a Shetland bridle, a belt, a rolled dog collar and a plaited bracelet and brow band before.
Last year I attended two weeks of training workshops at Saddlers Den in Southport, so this head collar should be relatively easy to do once I get into it.
I have paid for my training course and booked my accommodation for four nights, so I am ready to go.
If you want to follow this journey then I suggest you follow it chronologically, starting with Week 1.
