Dressage Sponsored Rider Paul Langford

Thinford Saddlery is delighted to be sponsoring Paul Langford. He grew up with Thinford Saddlery as his local tack shop and it’s where he bought his first riding hat when he was just 8 years old!

We kit him out with boots, hats, competition jackets, shirts and breeches plus we provide his horse with saddles, bridles, girths, numnahs and rugs.

Paul is a graduate from Aston Business School and also a BHS Int Stable Manager and is currently in the UKCC and BD Judge Training streams and holds regular clinics at centres around the North Of England coaching all levels and abilities.

Paul, is a professional dressage rider based in County Durham and runs a dressage yard from his base in Hole House Farm in Lanchester. He has been based there since 2016 training and producing horses for owners as well as coaching from his indoor and outdoor arenas.

His riding career began at Stotfold Crest Stables in Elwick, Hartlepool under the eye of Lesley Perry and her daughter Annie. Over the years he has been fortunate to learn from great riders and coaches and currently trains with Paul Hayler, Isobel Wessels and Gareth Hughes.

We sponsor Paul with two saddles; Albion Fabrento dressage and a Prestige mono dressage . We are proud to supply Paul with such top class saddles to help in his quest for perfection be it training or competing!
