    In search of a Deer Stalking Saddle for our Highland ponies

    Hello All!
    I am new to this Forum... and new to Highland Ponies. We live in Wyoming USA and will be picking up our two Highland weanlings next month. They will be the first two in the State of Wyoming of less then 100 in all of the USA. We hunt here in Wyoming and are excited about using our Highlands for packing game. In the tradition of their heritage, I would also like to be able to use proper Deer stalking saddles. I have found old posts of such saddles for sale (from 2010 and 2011) AND I found an article about a fellow named Sandy Macarthur, who makes Stalking saddles. However I have not found any current ads for saddles and have not been able to find any contact info for Sandy.
    Both our Highlands are just weanlings, so we have time to track down the tack we are seeking. But it appears they are few and far between, so I am glad I am getting an early start. We will be visiting the UK and Scotland, Sept/Oct of 2016.
    I would appreciate any information you might be able to send my way... and contact info for Sandy Macarthur would be helpful too. All I know is he is at Rogie Farm, Contin by Strathpeffer Ross-shire Scotland.
    Thanks for your help! ~ Diana Casey

    Hi Diana
    Here is a list of saddlers for a start.

    I live in the next glen to Rogie / Contin - Sandy isn't in our local phone book. I will ask around to see if anyone knows him.

    The enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
