Robert H. Steinke is curator of this fascinating museum, which demonstrates the work of the saddler and harness maker from ancient times onwards. The many forms of saddlery, for farming, military, transport and sporting use, are documented – saddles, harnesses, muzzles, harness decorations, plus horse drawn farm machinery and driving carriages. Robert recreates historic pieces so watch out for a Roman chariot harness, a jousting bridle or a medieval jousting saddle.
