Toys for Boys
The 2018 Society of Master Saddlers National Saddlery Competition will see an innovative and ‘thought-provoking’ President’s Choice class.
This year’s President, Sue Norton has come up with the idea of ‘Boys Toys’ – any leather toy for a boy of any age.  The entries will be judged on quality and craftsmanship as well as their innovative design and features.
The class is open to all Society of Master Saddlers’ members and their employees and must be the sole work of the entrant.

Once again the class will have an added dimension as it will also be part judged at BETA International in January where all the entries will be on display at The Society of Master Saddlers’ stand.
Entries must be sent to the society office by January 18, 2018. The Society of Master Saddlers National Saddlery Competition takes place at Saddlers’ Hall, London on Monday, February 5.
