About Me

Hello. I'm Gabriel.

‘Countryseats’ as my ‘brand name’ began in the mid-90s, when I needed a name for my antique business in rural Dorset, England.

The name stayed with me as my eBay identity in two hemispheres, and has evolved to encompass all things ‘country-style.’

During a lifetime around horses, and children, and horses—oh, did I mention horses—the name fits perfectly with my latest venture, which evolved (like all the best ventures) accidentally, after making saddle covers for friends to protect their precious saddles.

Those first saddle covers were well received, and after selling some in Noela Dickinson’s lovely horse shop ‘Horse and Co.‘ in Dayboro, Queensland, Australia, it was time for me to go on-line.

I hope you enjoy browsing my site, and don’t forget to share it with your horsey friends.
