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

I have just had my first ride in my new Eagle saddle. I will preface this by saying I was skeptical about my spending this kind of money for a saddle. As I explained, I’m from the old school, and had always gotten by without much special attention to the saddle before – I guess I was just lucky that my previous horses did not have the problems that are apparent today. I’ve ridden off and on since I was 7, and am now 57. I took time off when having a family, but always found some way to at least ride “other people’s horses. I was hoping lots of work on the roads and in the fields would be enough to have him do H/J and equitation at least, but the kissing spine diagnosis most likely suggests that won’t be happening. But this morning, I just had my first ride in my new saddle, on the scenic back roads here in upstate New York. Bagavond was very happy. I always knew him to be a pretty smart fellow, who needs a job. He loves getting out. And I have never had a more comfortable ride. I feel now I can work with him safely, without exacerbating his problems. So today was the first day we had it all together – and my first day back to my life’s passion. I also appreciate the video on your website of the 93 year old woman. You see, my sister had a friend, Frances, up in Cazenovia, NY – and she rode until she passed away at 95. That is who I wish to be. There is nothing like having a horse in your life.
