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...

... I had no intention of buying a new dressage saddle (I meant to see which saddle fit him best then try and buy a used one) but as soon as I sat in the Schleese Connexion saddle I really liked it. It was also immediately obvious that my horse liked it too as he went from being a little bit stiff and shuffling to big extravagant floaty paces within a few strides! The saddle is well made, the leather feels great & it has large external knee blocks which are really good at helping me keep the correct position & gives me a bit of extra security (my horse is a big warmblood with a huge stride who can suddenly explode skywards!). I also like that it's a monoflap as I feel really close to my horse (& there's less to clean which is a bonus for me). The only thing I don't like is that the saddle is rather heavy but my horse doesn't seem to object. Very well made, it is very comfortable & it looks great. I bought this saddle about 1 month ago & I can honestly say that this is the best purchase I have ever made for me & my horse. I tried different Schleese models. I was surprised how different they felt so it's a case of trying different models out to see what suits you and your horse the best. The difference in the way my horse moves is amazing. In my old saddle I felt like I was always fighting to get/stay in the correct position but in this saddle I sit correctly and can concentrate on actually riding.
