About Us

Hi, I’m Brad Walsh and I would like to tell you a little about myself and present to you some of my saddles, which I hope will speak for themselves.

I’m the second son of Des Walsh, a master saddle maker and co-owner of D.R. Walsh & Co., incorporating Mt Gravatt Saddlery.  I grew up on the south side of Brisbane at Mt Gravatt, spending ages as a young lad after school, just watching and being fascinated at the art of hand manufacture of saddlery, in the small workshop where we lived.  Dad could see my interest and inspired it by letting me have a go at some little things in the workshop at a young age. I assisted in the small family saddlery business throughout my school years with sales and service which led into a four year saddlery apprenticeship  in the mid 1980s with my father as the master, mentoring me in great detail on the finer points of the craft.  I spent a decade making and repairing saddlery in that small workshop, until pursuing a career in a different direction.

However, the passion for saddling did not leave the blood and I have been back at it now for the last few years, building saddles once again, under the banner of Sovereign Saddlery.

Under this name I have been creating and expanding a range of quality saddlery products, at value for money prices; predominately my own range of fine saddlery, handcrafted using traditional methods, and best quality materials, to suit the discerning buyer, whilst maintaining a high standard of customer service and satisfaction.

For those of you who have known and have dealt with Dad over the years, he is still going ok for an old fellow, and it is through his business, Mt Gravatt Saddlery, that the Syd Hill saddles shown here are available.  He would love to catch up with his old clients.
