Description - The Care and Repair of Saddlery by Robert H. Steinke

Through his first book Repair Your Own Saddlery and Harness, the author offered a broad-based approach to the maintenance of saddlery and driving harness in general. With this book he takes the horse owner through the introductory stages of saddlery repairs. For those of you who have never threaded a needle, except perhaps to plait a mane or tail, it explains how many repairs can be carried out with only the most elementary collection of tools. Throughout this book the importance of safety is constantly highlighted for, by systematically checking each item of saddlery, many breakages can be avoided.

Author Biography - Robert H. Steinke

Having served his apprenticeship, Robert Steinke founded his own saddlery manufacturing business in 1970. His workshop has produced goods for sale through his retail shop, mobile show unit and mail order business both for the home and export market. His experiences in the equestrian world include hunting, carriage driving and showing both in-hand and under saddle. Examples of his saddlery work have been exhibited at Cordwainers College, where he trained, and the London Design Centre, while he has had exhibitions of his photography in London and France. He now lives in Southern Ireland where a good proportion of his time is spent writing about equestrian subjects and enlarging upon his photographic collection.
