Trapeze & saddle production
The horse has always been an integral part of our lives. These were registered in Ireland from around 2500 BC. At first, the horse was not used to ride, but to tow wagons, carriages, and also for sports and ceremony purposes. They were the first to ride in Ireland, but specially designed calipers only came into use with the Normans' advent and their popular use came much later.
Originally single holsters were used, but more practical shapes of bridle and bit followed. Horse progressively substituted medieval steers for farming and general transportation. Plowing on the tails of ponies was still customary in Ireland in the 17th cent. But the British influences dispelled this rather inhuman custom. In the course of the years, this technique was overshadowed by the use of the plow and the horse neckband introduced by the Normans.
Introducing the round shoulder strap that allowed the horse to comfortably and easily draw load, plowing in this way enhanced the horse's capacity to draw the plow, which in turn speeded up and boosted productivity. However, it took a while before this kind of harness was used for all. The manufacture of harnesses and collars began with the population.
The manufacture of tableware had two similarities. Arrival of the class and the well-to-do, the artisans have the opportunity to make high-quality saddle, bridle and harness from genuine leathers, with delicate hardware and, in opposition, the less well-to-do, who make their own wooden harness and sugan rope from turned pitch.
Semitrailer manufacturing technologies have hardly ever altered over the course of the ages. It requires the best grade leathers made from select skins, these are plant-tinted, and then curry, ie straightened and made. Craftsmen cut the leathers exactly and to size, the parts are sewn together with well-waxed yarn, the mountings are fitted and ultimately refined to a high state.
The Kildare saddler has been in business for a long time and still produces high-quality saddle products today.
