The Top Saddlery and Bush Boutique have been an important part of the Katherine business community for quite a few years. Geoff & Julie Newton opened their Saddlery business, Geoff Newton Saddlery, in 1991, moving to a retail shop on the Katherine main street in 1993. When first opened, the business primarily repaired and made saddles, and horse gear. Since then the business has expanded, changed its name to The Top Saddlery and moved to its prime location in the middle of Katherine Terrace. In 2009 the business was further expanded to incorporate the Bush Boutique. Geoff and Julie currently have 6 other staff members and all are kept busy working between the saddlery and embroidery workshops, the retail shop and online store. The business prides itself on the strength and longevity of its relationship with the pastoral industry, it's strong connections with remote Aboriginal communities and it's committment to advocating for regional and remote businesses.
