Leathercraft by "Running Horse Leathers"

(currently unavailable) 

Handmade in Howth,


"A Stitch in Time saves Nine"

Saddlery and bridlery leather repairs are now available from Running Horse Leathers at Howth Horse & Carriage Co.

Before that loose thread becomes a disaster, get that strap, bridle buckle, reins or stirrup leather re-stitched. We will remove the old stitching and, using two needles, will double-handstitch it again. Unlike machine sewn articles, which unravels when a thread is broken, double-handstitching means that should one thread break in the future, the second thread will still hold it in place for a longer period.

Don't throw away that favourite leather bridle or headcollar which your horse has worn for the last 20 years

Call us to discuss your requirements.


How would you like to have your very own custom made leather headcollar, made to measure to fit your favourite horse. Using the very best English tanned leather butt, we handcraft the leather with care and double-handstitch with pride to create a once-off leather headcollar which even your horse will be proud to own.

Due to the customised nature of these articles, they take time to create, but I have no doubt the wait will be worth it. They are not cheap but they will last a lifetime with the right care.


Prices start at €175 for pony size and will vary upwards depending on size and design, etc.
