About Us

Fieldhouse Riding Equipment was established in 1983. Geoff Fieldhouse a Master Saddler by trade founded the company to supply quality saddles to the retail trade.

The GFS brand was the first to be introduced with a range of saddles, bridles and associated accessories.

In 1998 after successfully establishing the GFS brand in the market Fieldhouse Riding Equipment became sole distributors of the Pessoa range in the UK. Geoff Fieldhouse worked closely with Nelson and Rodrigo Pessoa to design and produce the world renowned Pessoa Brand of saddles, bridles and accessories. This relationship also led to another famous name coming on board, Blyth Tait and his cross country saddles developed in conjunction with Pessoa and GFS.

During this time Fieldhouse Riding Equipment also worked with the late Dr Reiner Klimke Olympic dressage gold medalist to produce the very successful Klimke Dressage saddle.

In the year 2000 Fieldhouse Riding Equipment moved premises to a purpose built site in Walsall, six times bigger than the previous one.

The year 2000 also saw the launch of a new product range, appropriately named the 2000 range offering a selection of high quality leather saddles, bridles and accessories.

In 2003 Fieldhouse Riding Equipment took on yet another brand name ANKY, selling a range of dressage saddles developed by the worlds leading dressage rider, Olympic gold medalist and world champion Anky Van Grunsven.

In 2004 the product range increased once again with the launch of the GFS and Pessoa horse clothing. Our website was launched in 2008.
