All horsemen need the perfect equipment for their ride and sportswear. Saddles, girths, and reins are part of the uniform when riding their horse through the country side. Some want to get their things made exclusively at home, not exported from another country, coming from the best local brands out there. In New South Wales, at the scene at the Scone Horse Festival and their history as the horse capital of Australia, there is one store, plus two other locations, that have what the right horseman needs.
At Marsh Carney Saddlery Tamworth, the husband and wife-owned business has been around since 1980, first opening their store in the small town of Scone, population 4,600. For their tenth anniversary, they expanded into a new market by buying a rival saddlery in the city of Tamworth, population 41,000. Marsh Carney then bought a third in the city of Dubbo and all three have succeeded beyond expectations to this day. At any of these stores, you can go and buy the finest saddles, attire, boots, rugs, groom care, and other accessories.
Among the large variety of saddles they have are the Marsh Carney Camp drafter ($5,900), made for riders to sit close to the horse’s back with flared back facings that allows the weight to be distributed more evenly. The MCS Cattleman ($2,295) is an all round saddle made using natural wood/fiberglass tree fitted with aluminum oxbows and fleece lining for comfort to your horse. The Jackaroo Saddle ($3,800) is a perfect saddle for many disciplines and comes mounted with a front girth and stirrup irons. Marsh Carney Saddlery Tamworth has saddles for adults and children, grown horses and ponies.
Other goods to consider: the Helmet Oscar Select ($159.95) has a stylish matt finish with a removable mesh lining that allows the airflow grow and makes it easier for cleaning the helmet. The Toowoomba Saddlery Mens Double Ring Hobble Belt ($124.95) is made from premium, full grain, belt leather, 1.5-inch wide body, and 2 x 1-1/2" solid brass harness rings. For equestrian riders in the summer, there are various colors of Perfect Fit riding gloves that keep your hands cool and breathable. And, the Ariat Men's Heritage Western Ropers wide square toe boot ($239.95) have a cross-design, bug and wrinkle design with a full grain leather lined foot.
Marsh Carney Saddlery is at Dubbo (18 Talbragar St Dubbo NSW 2830), Scone (124 Kelly St Scone NSW 2337), and Tamworth (222 Marius St Tamworth NSW 2340) and all available for your horsing needs.

It is part of the Australian lifestyle far from the major cities and attractions, and for its natives, the Outback life is in their DNA.
