SADDLER OF CHOICE FOR AUSTRALIA'S LEADING JOCKEYS
Neale Begg has been hand-crafting full leather racing saddles for Australia’s leading trainers and jockeys for more than 40 years.
With an emphasis on safety and quality, his light as a feather saddles have been seen on the backs of Melbourne Cup, Doncaster and Epsom winners. His latest works of art are the saddles of choice for Hugh Bowman on the great mare Winx.
Offering a full service for the racing and horse riding community, Neale provides a swift turn around on all tack and saddle repairs, and can custom make and design specific racing equipment.
His skills have been in demand from Sydney’s film developers for the past 20 years – commissions include The Great Gatsby, Australia, Wolverine and Phar Lap. Clients have engaged him to create customised wallets, belts, bill and menu holders, and repair old leather products such as suitcases and chairs.
Located in the heart of Royal Randwick Racecourse, Neale’s workshop is a flashback to the past – when time, attention to detail, skill and passion were important.
