Saddle Fitting for a healthy back.

Article published in Horse Health Magazine:

The saddle is one of the most important pieces of equipment we can buy for our horse or pony. To do its job correctly, it needs not only to fit the horse, but also fit the rider.

The work of the saddle fitter is made comparatively easy when both horse and rider are a good match physically, both fit for their job and have a reasonable budget.

Cross country schooling with Francis Whittington

Earlier this month I took Scarlet to Firle for a cross country clinic with Francis Whittington. The course was open for schooling for a few days after the BE event, so it seemed like a great opportunity to school over some BE90 fences. I signed up and asked to be put in the group people doing 80/90, and emphasised that we were green and wanted to build confidence as a partnership after a year and a half out of action.

Calling time on a four year struggle

It’s been a couple of months since I updated my blog, mostly because I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching over young Scarlet. My last post covered the amazing clinic we did at Firle with Francis Whittington in September, where for the first hour she behaved appallingly and it was only due to the fact that I have a life threatening amount of pride that I didn’t just get off and go home.

The right saddle for the right occasion

Initially people used to ride horses bareback without the saddles. But when it comes to comfort, competitions or hunting going bareback is out of question. Obviously for these purposes saddles are absolutely necessary. Choosing the right saddle for the right occasion is of utmost importance...

Waterproof Riding Jackets

Regular exercise is a must for horses no matter what is happening and how bad the weather is. It is not good to go without some or the other form of exercise for your horse. Even during wet weather, hot summers or the cold winters there is always the need to exercise your horse. In the wet weather riding can be uncomfortable as it is difficult when you are soaking wet. But sometimes you just have to go in the wet and there is no way round it!
