Looking Back on 2015

December 21st, 2015

This is going to be my last communication with you before the new year; we have been lucky enough to renew our relationship with Horse Sport and as such either I or Sabine will be continuing with the blog (we may alternate a little more going forward) in 2016! I cannot believe that we have actually been able to post so regularly, but looking back it has been a regular...

Thoughts on Attending Conventions

December 15th, 2015

Jochen is busy travelling all over the world again – he just got back from another course for the Berufsreiterverband (Association of Professional Trainers) in Germany at the end of November, then lectured at the Ingrid Klimke clinic in Caledon, and now is off in Florida visiting clients again until Dec. 23rd.  So it fell to me and our Marketing Director Cathy Rot...

Saddle Fitting with our Newest Acquisition - Introducing Sarah Ellis from Texas!

December 8th, 2015

I was going to write this week in response to a Q&A I read in a magazine recently “Can a Wide Backed Horse Hurt my Hips?” but I will leave that topic for a future blog, since I had to share with you the story my newest Client Success Manager Sarah Ellis (see pic!) from Texas enthusiastically told me about when she got back from her first clinic. I myself have j...

Saddle Fitting and Skin Issues

December 1st, 2015

It’s no secret that redheads have sensitive skin. But the interesting thing is that chestnuts also have the most sensitive skin in the horse world. As everyone knows, the skin is the largest organ of the body. (Somehow this never seemed to make sense intuitively, because to me an organ is an organ, and skin is skin, but there you have it!) That’s why creams are so ...

Another Comment on the Proper Use of Tack

November 23rd, 2015

I hadn’t really intended to continue in the vein of animal rights activism that I alluded to so very briefly in my last blog, but I came across the article below online and decided that it was worth translating and sharing with you all. It had only been published in German and French but I think the message is worth the effort. Again – I’d be interested in reading you...

Testimonials

When I had qualified and entered Amistad for Rolex 2010 it was there I decided was a good place to start looking for a saddle sponsor with all the vendors available.  There were so many saddles to look at many representatives to speak to.  I had met Miriam Boutros at the Schleese Saddlery booth while I was sitting in every saddle they had.  She was professional, courteous and very friendly taking the utmost time to tell me all about their saddles how they are fitted so horse and rider can get optimal comfort out of their saddle. It was the detail of explanation plus sitting in them and liking the feel myself that I picked Schleese Saddles out of all the vendors I visited to ask for a sponsorship and with fingers crossed approximately 4 weeks later I got a call that they'd come and fit my horse for me.  I was excited to ride in a Schleese saddle! Schleese saddles are in my opinion by far the best saddles on the market for comfort, quality & looks for the rider and allowing any horse to perform to its highest ability because of the freedom of movement it provides and also the comfort of how/where it sits on any horse that is fortunate to be properly fitted with one! I have been riding in their saddles for almost 8 years now and as 2018 is just around the corner I would like to thank you, Jochen and Sabine, for your superior Saddles which I have had the honour to be sponsored with.  Julia Dixon you are amazing and talented saddle fitter our horses love you! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart and I would like to wish Schleese Saddlery and all its staff a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
