I just wanted to say a very big thank you for my lovely halter and rope set. I'm really impressed with the quality. It's strong and soft at the same time and fits my horse perfectly. I was also really touched by the presentation - the beautiful gift wrapping and handwritten thank you note. I never thought a halter and rope would make my day!

"The pad is fantastic! And looks great. Customer service has also been great. Definitely love the angusbarrett pads, I’ve brought my partner 2 now!
One gets used everyday at the feedlot and one (the most recent one) is used for good when we go to the Campdrafts."

“I have picked up the Saddle Pads, they look amazing. Thankyou so much for all you have done to make them available for our draft in time. I look forward to ordering more from you for our next event.”
Jackie - 9 October 2018
I am stoked with the quality of the saddle pad, the customer service and the speed in which I received my order. My Mum also bought a few belts from your guys over the Christmas period and we struggled with sizing. Your staff were easy to deal with when it came to returns and the quality was as expected - wonderful. Angus Barrett is our number one option when it comes to leather goods and saddlery. Thanks again.

Pieces of quality, made authentically and out of quality materials are never expensive. They will be used fondly and used long after the price has been forgotten. Cared for they will last a lifetime."

"I must say that Angus Barrett does not conceive ‘planned obsolesce’ for products, meaning that the belts for my son, and my husband, are not tiring and in need of replacement any time soon. They are so well made and we are so happy with them. I am a true believer of investing in Australian-made and owned products."

"I am reading this after watching Better Homes and Gardens tonight. We were excited that they were visiting Orange, but when Tara Dennis announced something about bridles and "the best in the business", we were hoping it was you. We were properly rewarded.
You may remember that we visited your shop as tourists from Milton last April, and happened to live on the same street, Drury Lane, as another customer to whom you were just getting ready to ship an order.
We felt particularly blessed to see you featured and that your wonderful craftsmanship was given such remarkable coverage. By the way, when we were in the shop you mentioned that I had purchased a tether belt, and I have to admit that I did not really understand what you were talking about. When I got home, I checked the catalogue again, and upon examining the belt more closely I understood. What a useful design. I may never use it for tethering a horse, but, who knows, it would certainly work for anything I want to tie down or restrict! I value it even more than I did when I walked out of your store!
Anyway, Congratulations. Well done, and all the best."
Marc - 26th June 2017
"Positive feedback only- excellent customer service and a great product."
Vikki - 6th June 2017

"I usually do not do this however I am writing to you having received my recently ordered canvas gear bag I purchased from your online store. I could not be happier with the bag and the workmanship and attention to detail is remarkable! The presentation of the parcel was beautiful and a pleasure to receive with a personalised note from Amanda. I would just like to thank you for making the effort where a lot of other companies would not. It is not something I have come to expect when ordering online but to experience this level of customer care was extremely refreshing. I feel as though many retailers now feel it unnecessary to pay the consumer the extra time and effort when they are not purchasing goods from inside the store so I would once again like to extend my thanks to you all at Angus Barret. While others may not acknowledge it in writing as I have done, I am sure they too appreciate the care, time and effort you put in equally as much as I do. Thank you once again and please keep up the extraordinary work! I will be sure to look to Angus Barret next time I should need leather or canvas goods."

"Just like to let you know how happy I am with my Slimline saddle pad I purchased from you in May. Working at a feedlot and [I am] on my horses for 10-12 hours/day, I have tried a few saddle pads from different manufacturers but found that nothing comes close to the pad I got from you. I will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future. Also, in regards to your bridles/curb straps/leg straps/neck straps/bits and everything else I have purchased from you, I love them all!! Well done, keep up the good work. I am an Angus Barrett convert, and show off my gear everywhere I go."

The hand written note just goes to show how much pride you have in your work and this means so much to me. Although I only purchased something small, it was wrapped beautifully and I felt looked after. I will definitely be purchasing from you again and recommending you to all of my friends. A lot of businesses lack that important component of customer care and and I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with the service. Thank you again"

“...as a professional in the industry of camp drafting and it's surrounds, using quality saddlery goes hand in hand with the quality of my job and the presentation of my horses in competition. Angus Barrett saddlery provides me with the reliable and aesthetically professional gear I need and want as a top competitor. The presentation of my horses is important to me as part of my job and with the help of Angus Barrett saddlery, in the training of my horses with strong, sturdy and comfortable gear, and the high quality finish of these products means that my horses are ready for the show ring, both combine to give me the winning edge I need.”
