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

You fitted my saddle the end of January. It was a new Obrigado and I was not sure I liked it yet, and you told me to ride in it awhile and see what happened. Well, I just wanted you to know that as of today I officially am in love with this saddle. I have been liking it a lot, but today it all really clicked. (Lucio was in love a long time ago, actually.) It is really comfortable, and also puts me in a very good position and allows me to be really close to my horse. Lucio's shoulders are so much freer and his back so much happier that he is much easier to ride. Things got better a year ago when I switched to a Schleese. This saddle is really working and I am so happy. Also, my younger daughter Hannah rode Lucio in it yesterday and she had not ridden in a good while, and she loved it too. She said it was the most comfortable saddle she had ridden in. She had such bad pains from her previous saddle that she would be in tears and got a lot of UTIs from riding. It is part of the reason she stopped riding. She said she would like to start riding again.
