The Australian Outback is widely known around the world for its somewhat harsh environment, where the indigenous still live and the wildlife is something out of the ordinary on top of the red earth. For tourists, it a wonder to see, for natives who live there, it’s just where they work in mining, commercial, and horses. The Outback is the Mountainous west of the United States, the Safari of Africa, and the Northwest Territories is perfectly connected deep into the land. Come here and you will find the perfect place to get your horse riding set up.
Top Saddlery and Bush Boutique is family owned located in Katherine, on the forenamed river in Australia’s most northern section of the country, the “Top End.” Over 6,000 people live in and around Katherine, where it is said that, “The outback meets the tropics.” Top Saddlery and Bush Boutique is about getting the best gear to trek in the outback, proving quick and reliable services to all customers, locals and tourists. It opened in 1991 by Geoff & Julie Newton and has it sat on Katherine’s most notable street: 38 Katherine Terrace, Katherine, NT. From its humble beginnings of repairing and making saddles, the store has since expanded it to bush supplies; that wilderness survival for you non-Aussies.
Top Saddlery has a large range of saddles, attire, rodeo equipment, accessories, and lots more. The saddles include customized Western and Stock Saddles including the popular Fender Saddles, Northern River Drafter Saddles, and TTS Stirling Saddles. Plus, they have quality range of bridles, bits, and reins for all horse riding activities, belts and straps, stable and grooming products for your horse, and various horse whips.

Top Saddlery and Bush Boutique has played a major role in Katherine’s economic development for its connection to the jungle, the Outback, and the ocean. Currently only five other employees work with the Newton’s in maintaining the entire business, showing a very personalized approach to all orders and physical services.
