Black Country Saddles has revealed that they are the company chosen to design and supply special saddles and tack by the producers of the latest Hollywood blockbuster that opens in the UK later this week.

The company was approached more than 12 months ago to produce the saddles for the latest Ridley Scott film Robin Hood featuring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett.
"This was a really exciting project for us as these saddles were far from our usual production," said sales manager Nikki Newcombe.
"I visited Shepperton Studios to consult with the creative designers on the styles of a medieval saddle. After many discussions we agreed upon for an array of models including the Cardinals Men, King Johns Guards and most importantly Maid Marion’s. The finishing touches to each saddle was individual with the ornate metalwork and we were given pretty much free rein which involved a lot of ideas and great deal of fun in the factory."
