Marsh Carney Custom Leather Work
Many of you have heard of Marsh Carney Saddlery but let us introduce you to the man behind the brand.
Marsh is a down to earth, back to basics, traditional type of a gentleman yet his attention to detail, clean lines and quality hand stitching is second to none.
Starting his trade with Charlton’s in Sydney, Marsh honed his craft in English saddles and tack yet was very quickly converted to the country traditional craftsmanship. For over 40 years he has handcrafted the most beautiful stock saddles that have been used and won at Royal shows and are still in action today. His rodeo years saw him painstakingly design and create beautiful western saddles until he turned his hand to the versatile half breed saddle. Marsh produces the highest quality finish for both the rider at home and the top level competitor. Hard wearing, rugged and tough to take everyday in its stride.
From that very first step that you choose a Marsh Carney saddlery, you have started a long-term relationship with a quality Australian made product and a passionate team.

Please note all hides are unique and will all vary slightly in colour
English Bridle Leather
Traditional Sedgwick Bridle leather is hand finished in Walsall England. The surface has a smooth finish and is designed for the equine industry. It has a high shine finish due to the care and attention it receives as it works its way through the tanning process. Sedgwick bridle leather is used for most of our show quality products including all our stock horse tack. It has a beautiful, clean finish desired by our competition riders.
American Harness Leather is ideal for western tack such as bridles, Breastplates, Reins etc. Through the tanning process it is extremely strong and pliable. This type of leather is vegetable tanned in a traditional pit-tanning system with a high wax finish.
This leather is what is used in Western and Half Breed saddles. It is very strong and pliable which allows us to shape the leather to the tree tightly giving the high quality finish. This leather is vegetable tanned over a 4 week process in the USA utilising heavy steer hides.
American Latigo Leather
A straight vegetable tanned latigo, the leather is strong and has a good yield. It is pliable and strong made from domestic hides and has a beautiful burgundy finish. This leather is used to make the latigos for the saddles as well as cut thinly to tie ropes and saddle strings.
