The Worshipful Company of Loriners

Loriners make and sell bits, bridles, spurs, stirrups, saddle trees and the minor metal items of a horse's harness.

The company was incorporated in 1711. Women were not admitted until 1989 - better late than never.

From their 2011 Annual Livery Dinner: "The first surviving reference to Loriners’ Hall is found in Pepys’ diary of 1668. The Hall stood on the corner of Aldermanbury Postern and London Wall, facing Basinghall Street, and was leased from the Corporation. The Company relinquished the lease in 1759."

This 1755 map shows two "Postern"s (small gates), either of which could be the one referenced.

From their website: "The Company does not have a Hall. This is often an advantage, however, in that we have the opportunity to visit many of the other Company Halls on these occasions, and the annual Livery Banquet is held at the Mansion House by courtesy of the Lord Mayor."
