Hadfield Bridleworks Ltd. was established in 1995, in Walsall, England. Steeped in tradition, quality and service, the U. K. was our first and only choice. As Switzerland is famous for its watches, Walsall is famous for its leatherwork.
We are blessed to have Master Bridlemaker, Mike Citrullo, on board as Operations Manager. Mike has worked passionately in the industry for over 40 years and has taught the trade to many, including students at the Walsall Leather College. Along with Mike, we have a team of talented men and women dedicated to precision, quality and excellence.
Mike states that one of the many advantages we at Hadfield's have over our competitors is quality control. Many other companies rely on several sources for their bridlework, sometimes importing materials from different countries or subcontracting steps in the production process, making quality control difficult or, at times, impossible.
|At Hadfield Bridleworks, every item is made "in house." Each bridle made today is created by the same craftsmen and craftswomen who made the first Hadfield bridle years ago.
Today, the Hadfield bridle has become the most sought after bridle in the U. S. and Canada. Our goal is to offer our superior line in the U. K. and Europe. We are in the process of establishing a showroom at our U. K. factory.
Many have already become fans of the HBW line from as far away as France, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, England, Argentina, Belgium and the Netherlands, having been introduced to Hadfield Bridleworks products at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida. Included in this list is the U. K.'s own six-time Olympian, Nick Skelton. Having been so impressed with Hadfield Bridleworks, Nick is now endorsing it. As he states, "I give my horses the best ride possible as well as the best equipment possible."
If you haven't already done so, stop by our store, mobile unit or U. K. operation and see for yourself what our famous leatherworkers have produced.
