Making a purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our on-line catalogue, click the 'Add to Cart' button on any items you wish to buy. Your shopping cart is always on view, on the right of the screen.

After you have finished your selections, click on "Checkout" and you will be asked for a few details which we need to be able to satisfy the order. Alteratively, to delete items from your shopping cart at any time, simply hit the 'remove' button in the shopping cart section of the page. You can also manually up-date the quantities required if necessary before proceeding to the checkout.

We accept credit card payment. If you are shopping from outside the U.K., place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your currency. (We provide approximated dollar, yen and Euro values but the Internet is full of currency converter programmes, just put 'currency convertor' into your search engine.) The precise conversion rate is decided by your credit card company at the time of purchase.

We accept most credit and debit cards, including American Express. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Back ordered items are not charged until they are shipped.

Payment by cheque is no longer accepted.

We recognise that whilst many of our customers enjoy the efficiency of ordering over the Internet, other customers may like to visit us at our shop in Chesham, Bucks., England. If you do visit us, please note that the heavy overheads involved in running a shop, mean that the prices of goods may be different than that shown on the Internet.

Please note that where the card holder name and address do not match the shipping address, an order may be subject to delay (whilst we make security checks) or even cancellation. It is an offence to order goods using the credit card of a third party.

Delivery Schedule


With immediate effect and for the forseeable future, the following will apply;

Goods ordered by 1.00p.m. and in stock will be shipped Mon-Fri via Royal Mail 1st class, recorded or Special services (depending upon the value of the item). Please note these services are no longer guaranteed to arrive at U.K. addresses the next day and as the situation is fluid, we are unable to advise customers when delivery will be made, although Royal Mail endeavours to provide the best service possible under current conditions.

For up-to-date information on the International Tracked & Signed Royal Mail service we use, please refer to the COVID19 incident bulletin on their web site. This gives country by country status reports. Please check the status of your country before placing your order with us, as we will ship but are unable to guarantee delivery within a reasonable time frame. Parcels shipped to countries where the service has been suspended will be held at the Royal Mail depot in Langley indefinitely.

Government advice regarding the handling of parcels after delivery is evolving, so please keep abreast of current guidelines.

Where we have the item ordered in stock, it will be despatched the same day if the order is placed before 3.00p.m., or the next working day otherwise. If the item is not in stock and this is likely to mean we are unable to ship within 10 days, we will be in touch to advise of the new lead time, or to offer an alternative product.

Royal Mail First Class delivery (which is our standard service) is not guaranteed to be delivered next day but we find that in most cases, it is delivered next day. The exception tends to be highlands and Islands where delivery usually takes 2 days. Obviously if Royal Mail staff members are involved in industrial action at any time, this may have an adverse affect on deliveries. We will however do our best to make alternative arrangements if delays become prolonged.

International deliveries weighing up to 2kg usually arrive at most destinations in 5-8 working days. This does not however take into account local Customs delays. Parcels weighing over 2kg can take up to 28 working days to arrive but in our experience, even tend to arrive in Australia after about 10 working days.

If your parcel fails to arrive, please notify us within 20 days of despatch, or we will be unable to trace the parcel or to reimburse for loss.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. Most items return to stock within around 10 days but you will usually be contacted, with the option to cancel your order, in case you would rather not wait.

That means the date of the final shipment if it was shipped in parts. This applies to all our products, except for items which are made-to-measure e.g. Gorringe jodhpurs. We regret that neither can we accept cancellations of contracts for the purchase of items cut from a roll e.g. leather strapping or cut to size e.g. walking sticks.

This applies when you purchase goods or services costing over £42.

Shipping and Handling

Our standard shipping service is Royal Mail 1st Class delivery. Depending on the value of the item shipped, we may use their Tracked service which requires a signature. In most cases we are happy to deliver to a work place address or to a neighbour if you are going to be out when your postman calls.

Due to distribution restrictions; Barbour products can only be delivered within the European Economic Area (EEA) and to BFPO addresses.

Some items which are too long for delivery via Royal Mail recorded delivery i.e. over 92cm long, will go via Parcel Force's 48 hour service. This applies mainly to shepherds crooks and thumbsticks.

Returns Policy

We are happy to accept returns but it is the responsibility of the sender to ensure the parcel arrives safely back at Cox the Saddler Ltd, 23, High Street, Chesham, Bucks, HP5 1BG, ENGLAND.
If returning goods from outside the E.C. it is imperative that the parcel be marked, 'RETURNED GOODS' otherwise the parcel will get stuck in U.K. Customs and will eventually be returned to the sender.

Under these difficult circumstances, we are extending the returns deadline to 60 days after the date the goods were shipped from Cox's. We hope this will relieve customer stress and enable you to make a calm decision about whether to request a refund or a replacement. We are still shipping replacement items but see 'Delivery Schedule' for service limitations under the lockdown.

In the event that you are not totally happy with your purchase for any reason, we are pleased to refund or replace. The goods must be returned to us, in a saleable condition, within 30 days of the date of despatch. We only ask that you pay the return postage to us using Royal Mail recorded delivery. Any discrepancies in the goods received must also be reported within 30 days of the date of despatch. Please note that we do not refund for items which are made-to-measure e.g. Gorringe jodhpurs, cut from a roll such as the leather strapping or cut to size like a walking stick, as these are not saleable once returned.

Please note our resin head collectors and silver plated canes may be used for light balance but are not suitable for heavy use or orthopaedic support. Care should be taken not to drop the cane to avoid denting the silver plate or chipping the lacquered shaft. These are collectors’ canes, and need to be handled with care. Collectors’ canes are not designed for orthopaedic use. If dropped on a hard surface, the resin heads will shatter. We will not issue refunds for damaged heads.

In the case of faulty or damaged goods being received, or if the goods received differ from those ordered, enclose a receipt for the return postage (you must use Royal Mail Recorded delivery only) and we will refund that too.

The parcel must be clearly marked with a returns number which can be obtained by emailing explaining the situation.

Goods being returned from outside the UK, must state clearly on the packaging that the parcel contains 'Returned Goods', otherwise the parcel may be impounded by UK Customs and Excise. Please use standard insured mail, rather than a courier, otherwise again the goods will be impounded.

Please note that if you ask us to replace the item with a different size for a second time, we will charge postage and handling at the rate of £4.95 to the UK or according to original price otherwise. The cost of shipping a different size the first time around is on us!

If you have any complaint about the products or services of please email with details. Your email will usually be answered within 2 working days.

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now U K law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

Saddler are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from us a new Electrical or Electronic product.

For example, if a customer bought a new EEE item from us we would accept their old WEEE item and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

Merci beaucoup ma veste est arrivée vendredi et elle est magnifique et parfaite. Merci à votre équipe pour les conseils pour la taille, tout est parfait. Très heureux de mes commandes avec vous. Merci pour votre gentillesse et votre disponibilité. Très cordialement.

David C., France

The long awaited Barbour has arrived! Thank you!

I've also been very lucky and the package was not stopped by customs! Since we were chatting back in January I have ordered a number of items from the UK and sending packages via Royal Mail has proved the best so far with regards to not getting caught in customs.

So, I'm delighted with my purchase and very glad I was able to shop with you.

Thanks for everything!


D.D.R., Ireland
Hello Sara,

The two jackets I purchased from you last year were absolutely perfect. My father and wife love them.

Daniel P., New York, U.S.
Hi Sara. The jacket arrived in great condition. Will be sure to recommend your shop!

Stay well,

Kyle W., Michigan U.S.

I just wanted to say that I was astounded to have received this (Barbour dog collar) in the post today. I only ordered it yesterday afternoon! What an amazing turnaround on the order (hats off to Royal Mail too I guess). Fantastic service.

Also a well priced product too!

Thank you so much.

Nicola C., West Yorkshire
Many thanks. The replacement ring arrived this morning. I'm impressed!

Kind regards,


Linda S., Yorkshire

Thank you for the email.

All sorted goods delivered this morning. Thank you for a fantastic service.



Nathan R., Newport
I wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for the excellent service that I received from your company when ordering my jacket. I had looked everywhere "Stateside" and could not find the jacket that I was searching for with any type of discounted price. Long story short, I have recently retired from having my own business (automobile) after thirty one years and fourty seven employees and your company is one of the very few that I have ever been associated with that I consider to having the same level of service as I provided to my clients plus being called from the UK brought this purchase to a whole different level. You're the best, don't ever change but always remember that there's someone else that wants that # - 1 position.
Charles M., Georgia
Fantastically fast delivery! Couldn't believe it when something ordered last Friday turned up today. Very happy with product and price as well. Will certainly use you again.
Dr. A., Essex
