What to Watch for When Buying a Saddle

December 19th, 2016

This being the Christmas season with presumably at least some riders hoping for a saddle under the tree I thought it would be worth repeating some key points I have previously touched on. In essence you may use the “9 Points of Saddle Fit as a guide”, but here are a few extra pointers. The art of fitting a saddle to both horse and rider is something which is not ex...

Thankful for our Horses

December 6th, 2016

I’d like to share with you what I recently wrote for one of the US publications I submit to, because I feel it warrants repeating. In this season of being thankful (the recent US Thanksgiving holiday, and our upcoming Christmas celebrations), let’s take a few minutes to reflect on the horses we’ve loved and learned so much from. Pirat was my partner in many successful...

Introducing Another Sponsor of “Dover’s World Live”- Schleese Saddlery! I am so pleased to announce another of my 5 Presenting Sponsors for my upcoming Radio Show, “Dover’s World Live”, which premiers one week from today, Tuesday, October 19th at 6:00 pm on AM 1230 WBZT. Schleese Saddlery is a company which I have known, along with its founder, Jochen Schleese, for many years. I have to tell you that I have been involved with and actually designed saddles for a number of other manufacturers over the decades and am still great friends with some of the owners. That being said, I have to hand it to Jochen, who I joke with since he very much directs his advertising toward the “female gender”, because with great care and many fittings, we came up with a saddle which I can honestly say is the most comfortable and closest fitting to the horse that I have ever ridden in. The fit on the horse is reminiscent of the Schultheis Saddle which I rode in 30 years ago but the craftsmanship includes state of the art design and materials which provide the rider (male or female) with extraordinary comfort! It’s pretty much like sitting in your favourite chair at home, while affording you the perfect seat and leg position you need on the horse. So, in the end it’s sort of the reverse of that old “Irish Spring Deodorant” commercial with the lady who says, ”Made for the man……but I like it too!” Schleese may be directing its energy toward the female clientele, but I guarantee all you guys out there will love riding in my saddle.
