Historic Tenterfield Saddler building and trademark sold to equestrian brand WeathaBeeta

The Tenterfield Saddler made famous in a song by Australian singer-songwriter Peter Allen has changed hands for the first time in more than three decades.

The building, built about 1860, and its lucrative trademark have been bought by equestrian equipment supplies business WeatherBeeta for an undisclosed sum, bringing to an end months of speculation since they were listed for sale in April.

Allen's grandfather George Woolnough purchased the saddlery on High Street in 1908 and ran it until his retirement in 1960.

Before the purchase by WeatherBeeta, the building was owned by the Meldon family since 1995. After the death of patriarch Brian in 2021, the family decided it was time to move on.
