The Royal Winter Fair 2015

November 16th, 2015

I was actually going to write about another very sad case study of a horse but I thought it would be timely to put some thoughts down about our iconic Canadian horse/trade/agricultural show instead. (So case study will be moved to next week’s entry). For those of you who have never worked the Royal – the hours are long, the atmosphere exhausting – and pretty much ever...

Testimonials

Hi Amanda [Silver] I want to thank you and to let you know how much I appreciate you and my Schleese saddle. Oni is a dream for me to ride but I know this would never be if he did not have this perfect saddle for him.  Today you adjusted for the changes in his muscle development after riding in his Schleese saddle for a year and the difference is so wonderful. I am very grateful that you can adjust his saddle in such a way to fit his big Friesian shoulders. I can hardly wait to get on him tomorrow. Amanda, you and your husband are so knowledgeable and kind and easy to work with. Oni and I both enjoyed our saddle fitting today very much. See you next year!
