Western Flare on a Bond 2

Thanks from Cynthia Vossenberg

Just wanted to send a note for taking the time to fit my used DK Saddle on my horse Lucy at Stonehaven Farm this past June. I am a student of Joanne Bouwhuis.  My equine chiropractor and my equine massage contact cannot believe the difference in her back. Thanks again.  Cynthia Vossenberg

Just wanted to let you know how fantastic my horse is going after you fitted his saddle.  It is like I have a whole new, younger, energetic horse.  I enjoyed all the knowledge you shared too.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart (and my horses too)!

Wanted to let you know we love our saddles.  We have a total of 15 saddles, 5 are Freedoms and 10 are Bonds.  They have greatly improved the position of my students riding and the horses are so much freer!  Love 'em, Thank you.

Diane Mayes -

I threw my saddle on a starter colt yesterday and the ranch owner said I was brave using such a nice saddle on a colt...I said I bought it to use it and it's the only saddle I would put on a horse. He offered to put an old wreck of a saddle on just in case it comes off in the dirt.  I said saddle fits the horse so he won't be bucking it or me off.  My first ride on him today proved correct..not a flinch from him at all. Thank you!! 

Congrats to Brittany Fraser - Pan Am Games

The experience of buying the right saddle

"The experience of buying the right saddle"

My belief that my horse deserved a pain free life from people, along with my trust in Ashley and in my trainer made me wait to find the right fit in a saddle.

After trying out at least 7 or 8 saddles, wanting so much to have one, comfy for me and one that fit my horse,
neither Ashley or my trainer were happy with the fit of the multiple saddles I was dying to have. I was so close to just getting one due to my needs I almost went against their advice.
