“Hi Brad— just wanted to say a huge thanks for fixing my saddle.  I’m very happy with it and the work you’ve done! Again, thanks so much for your professionalism and making the necessary repairs while keeping my budget in mind.  I'll definitely be recommending your services.  Cheers, Dannii.”

Hi Brad,

I was able to have a ride in my new saddle on Milo today and it is very nice and puts my legs in the right place, I like it a lot.

You certainly know your stuff and I especially appreciate the extra holes you put in as I have got the stirrups on the second and third top holes !

One day I hope to be able to get you to make me a custom saddle but in the meantime my new saddle suits me fine.

Thank you

I purchased a youth fender for my son from Brad at Sovereign Saddlery in December 2013.

My husband and I wanted the saddle for a Christmas gift and the day my payment was received the saddle was in the post and we got it 2 days later.

Brad went above and beyond to accommodate my order as I changed things. He worked throughout the weekend making sure everything would be perfect when the saddle arrived.

We are extremely happy with our purchase, our son loves his new saddle.

I have been in the customer service industry for 15 years and is refreshing to have been looked after as well as we were by someone so dedicated to his business.

We would recommend for your next saddle purchase you give Sovereign Saddlery a call and see what Brad can do for you.


Thank you

Good Morning,
Just wanted to let you know that the saddle has arrived :-)  It's such a nice saddle! I have tried it on my gelding and it fits perfectly and it's the perfect size for me to! Definitely doesn't look or feel to big.
Thanks again both of you for all of your help and going to the extra effort of making sure this was the right saddle for me! I will definitely come to you guys later on down the track when I am in a better financial position to have a saddle made :-)


Kiera Fenner, Blackwater, QLD

I cannot talk highly enough of Brad from Sovereign Saddlery. He proved thorough, professional and knew what he was talking about. He has been a huge help in keeping in mind my budget but the look I wanted in a saddle.  I honestly recommend these guys for any saddle needs. The assistance was fantastic and to receive my saddle even better than I pictured was money worth investing!!! Thanks so much Brad for a fantastic job.

Hi Brad


Stirrups and leathers arrived today - look great and go well with the saddle.

Thanks again on the good job.


Alex Schanzer, Auckland, NZ

I recently ordered a Toowoomba Cloncurry Fender saddle through Brad at Sovereign Saddlery.

All I can say is I received nothing short of exceptional service, prompt replies to all questions.( he did not stick to office hours, messaging me even of an evening) Brad was patient with answering questions and ensuring I had the saddle to best suit my need and that of my horse.

He notified me immediately that the money I had transferred was received.

Delivery was very quick, with messages sent advising my saddle had been posted. (was packed perfectly)

In fact the service was so good a friend also ordered the exact same saddle from Brad.

Please do not hesitate in contacting him and placing an order.


Deb from Waikerie SA

Brad your service was excellent, before engaging to purchase our saddle from you we had been into other local stores and where no one presented as helpful or informative as you were. Thank-you for offering the right advice and helping us make a choice we are happy with. :)

James & Suzette Lawson, Greta West, Vic



Hello Brad,

Saddle has arrived and looks fantastic.

Cody (our son whose saddle it is) is very happy.

He hasn’t had a chance to ride in it yet though.

Thanks for a great job.

Colin and Jocelyn Gordon, Bowen, Qld

I was looking for extra riding security and comfort – but didn’t know enough about Australian Stock or swinging fender saddles to feel confident to buy.  I spent months in retail shops without learning much then stumbled on Des and Brad Walsh at Mt Gravatt.  These guys are a font of knowledge which they are happy to share and made the experience of buying a saddle memorable.  What a joy to find a craftsman like Brad who still makes saddles to order and really takes pride in his work.  I’m happy and I know you will be too.  Lynne Blighton - Thornlands, Qld

I would highly recommend Mt Gravatt Saddlery. I recently purchased a saddle as a present for my daughter, after several phone calls to suppliers I found Mt Gravatt Saddlery on the internet. Brad was so helpful with what saddle would be appropriate, answered all my questions and gave knowledgeable advice. I asked if he could possibly have the saddle to me in an extremely short time frame. Nothing was a problem and the saddle arrived right on time and my daughter was overjoyed. It was exactly what she wanted and was the right size, she said it will be her pride and joy for many years to come. They also made follow up calls to see if it arrived safely and we were happy with our purchase. Wonderful people to deal with and exceptional service. Thanks Brad and Des, look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Leonie Thompson - Ridgelands, Qld

Hi Brad, I had my first ride today in the new saddle. I am absolutely happy with it, it's so comfy.  My friend agreed with you it's a pretty good fit for the horse. All good and thank you very much for your time and effort.

Cheers  Nargi


Nargi Clark -  Moogerah, Qld

I received my saddle today and could not be happier! I received nothing but the best customer service from Brad from start to finish. He was very helpful in understanding what I needed and changing things to what would suit me best. I will be using Sovereign Saddlery for any other gear I may need and would not hesitate to recommend Sovereign Saddlery to anyone looking to purchase a new saddle. Thanks again for all your help.

Hi Brad,

Finally gave both horses a good ride in the saddle today. Its pretty perfect, fits us all really well. And the best part is no dry spots on the grey mare for the first time ever. Thanks for all your hard work and thank you for the extra effort you went to to get it ready in time for me.








Maree Glasby, Gympie, Qld

Hi Brad,

Just received my surcingle and I'm very happy with it. Thanks for the great job.



Caleb Kessel, Landsborough, Qld

Wow! How is that for service? I live in the country,  ordered my saddle one day and it arrived in the mail the next day! Brad, thank you so much for being prompt with my order. The best part about it though is that the saddle is just what I have been looking for. Up until now I have found it hard to find a fender where I can actually put my legs on my horse properly and control my horse with my body instead of my hands. Honestly, my horse was a totally different horse virtually straight away. He instantly responded to my seat and legs, and I felt so comfortable and in control. I am really looking forward to the improvements in both my riding and my horses performance now. Thank you so much.


Carmen, Taroom Qld

Hey Brad,


Just transferred the final payment for my saddle of $500. If you could post ASAP that would be great!!


Thanks for helping me out and doing business with me! It's been a pleasure! I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks!


Thanks again,


Georgie :)


Georgie Stower, Charlton, Qld

Hello Brad & Des

Thank you very much for getting the saddle to us so quickly.
We tried it yesterday and think it is great.
Will be in touch when we need any more gear.
Look after yourselves.

Hi Kylie

Did you receive your oxbows?




Hi Brad

Yes I did. Thank you for lovely workmanship on the leather tread, they look fantastic!

Also excellent service.



Kylie Livolsi

I first approached Brad of Sovereign Saddlery because I was unable to find a stock saddle  to fit my young warmblood cross.  My young mare was extremely round and short backed which meant even a wide fender saddle would be too big.  Brad took me on and over a period of time we together worked out what I was wanting.  I received a beautiful stock saddle with a wide gullet which fits her perfectly. 

Recently while riding her in the bush I have been extremely grateful to have been in Brad’s saddle.  We have encountered several kangaroos and when my mare has really spooked I found I didn’t move in my new saddle and stayed with her when she moved quickly.  I was pleased to be safe in a saddle which helps to keep me that way.

Last but not least but very importantly my new saddle fits my young mare perfectly and she seems much happier when being saddled and I feel much happier knowing this.

Hi Jade

Did your saddle arrive ok?

Brad from Sovereign Saddlery was a great help in finding the perfect saddle for my fathers Christmas gift. My father has had his Syd Hill & Son saddle since he was 21 years old, he is now in his 50's. Brad was extremely helpful and provided great service and the saddle was exactly what my dad wanted. I would highly recommend his business. 

Thanks again for all your help.

Hey Brad! 

Well I just got back from the most amazing ride on my boy, I haven’t ridden him in 2 years and it was awesome :)  Your saddle is amazing, I felt so comfortable, like being in a lazy boy and I was so relaxed and he was relaxed, it fit him like a glove and he was super thank you so so much :)  You have helped me get back up on the saddle again and I loved it :) I tried to take a pic of the sweat on his back but not very clear but it was even on both sides, no rubbing, no dry fit like a glove :) 

Thanks again

Hello Brad,

Here is a photo of our horses all dressed up in their new gear. The saddles are great, they fit both horses well and are comfortable to ride in. Andy and I are very happy with all the tack and appreciate your help with everything.

Hi Brad,

Just a note to say thanks for all your help on buying our saddles from you.

After sending one back and swapping for a different one and numerous phone calls later you were still happy to help.

Love the saddles and they fit great. 

Please feel free to put this note on your website if you wish.

Brad got saddle at 4 pm all good.  Very happy with your service. Thank you.

G’day Brad,               

Mate, many thanks for the saddle you built. The Special Diamantina Stock Fender is a perfect fit for me and my horse. My previous saddle no longer fitted her. Within half an hour of riding in the new saddle she settled and was no longer tossing her head when asked for a right hand canter lead and also when being asked for roll backs. After one week with the new saddle I took her out on a 4 hour trail ride and she came home without any signs of being sore. Since then we have completed two campdrafts and due to not being affected by saddle pressure, we achieved a cut out of 19 and I lost the beast on the second peg on our last outing. Our best ever score.

The quality of workmanship in the saddle you have provided is second to none and the fit for both horse and rider I can’t rate highly enough.

Many thanks for your time in providing me with a great saddle.

JJ Millar

Hi Brad,
I just wanted to thank you for all you have done for us to find the perfect saddle to fit both my daughter and her high withered horse. The Toowoomba Saddlery Sunset Drafter fits perfectly.
Thank you for being patient with me when I asked all those questions, and for helping me get the correct measurements of his wither, which then enabled you to make a template up and see which saddle would best suit him.
You went above and beyond to help me, thank you.
I will recommend you to anyone looking for a new saddle.
Kind regards,


Krystal Bullen


Hi Brad

Nicole Shuttleworth

Hi Brad

Just a quick note to thank you for my Sunset Drafter.  The saddle is fabulous.  It has settled to my horse and I love it.  I have recommended your saddles to all who have admired mine.
