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 wanted to drop you a note and let you know that destiny will have it that all roads in my life seem to lead to Schleese! I am now trimming for Margaret Boyce and her students in NY and I did know how close she was with the Schleese team. When we discover this, I of coarse was jumping out of my skin for the opportunity to see Jochen at a fitting nearby and drop in to say Hi. I have not forgotten all of you and the opportunity that was before us last year, I think that the future will hold something for us I will hope that destiny will continue to bring me right where I belong despite my over thinking it all. As my kids are getting older, I see that there is much potential for growth and you guys are always on my mind! I had the opportunity to ride Margaret's horse in a lesson and I wrote a story about it I thought you might enjoy. I like to write about experiences that seem to be "Big" in my life and I truly savor the emotion and memories by writing. I thought I would share with you my little story about Big, especially since he was in a gorgeous HK that I so enjoyed riding in...and the dynamic of balanced hoof care combined with good training and saddle fitting was thoroughly enjoyed by me on this day! Hope you are well, I can still hear your voice on the other line and replay all of our chats in my mind, and I wanted to thank you for your support and understanding during that time of turmoil for me. You never know what the future holds. I’ll be probably popping up on Jochen here and there and around in NJ PA and NY if ever he just needs a spare set of hands. I so enjoy the learning from him and all working with all the pretty horses! Schleese is a part of the explosions of learning that I speak of in this story! Best regards to you and all of the Schleese team! (Especially Julia who I have met and adore!)
