Many of our products are inspired by the horse country and customers that have shopped with Maryland Saddlery for over 30 years. All are crafted by our Master Saddlery, Ridgely Davis. His designs are lovely and practical, and made to reflect the need of the final product. Those seeking a classically-crafted and durable product will fit perfectly with goods made from British tanned bridle leather, while those wanting a finer product with a softer feel will be better suited to something made from Dove leather. Browse our selection of available products, or reach out to us and let Ridgely craft you something from scratch.

Ridgely Davis has been in the leatherwork trade for over 30 years. He is a life-long horseman, foxhunter, farrier, and craftsman. In his early years he found himself apprenticing under gifted leatherworker Freddie Morretti in an eclectic leather shop over the post office in Glyndon, Maryland.

Freddie wasn't afraid to let Ridgely try new things, which equated to things Freddie didn't want to do himself. Ridgely was always up for the challenge! Freddie was happy to pass on the bridlework basics and his extensive knowledge of the fine art of leatherwork.

Perhaps more importantly than his shared technical skills was Freddie's recognition of Ridgely's passion for the trade and gift of the encouragement needed to become the successful saddler and craftsman he is today. Ridgely's son, Brant, recently joined him in the shop as his apprentice, with hopes of passing on the tricks of the trade.

Ridgely has since studied at Cordwainers College in England to learn the art of saddle fitting and repair from Certified Master Saddler, Malan Goddard. He particularly enjoys the process of achieving a proper saddle fit and seeing the benefits on the performance and overall well-being of both horse and rider.
