Do you have a love-hate relationship with going on vacation? Then you must be responsible for animals and/or own a business!
For most people, vacations are one of those things that you try to do to relax and get away from your job and normal routines. However, if you are responsible for animals and a business, the preparation to go, the worrying during your vacation and the fixing of things when you return can be so stressful you are often left wondering if it was all worth it?!
Horse Health Tips For Students includes information for our students about common horse health care issues. These posts are to bring awareness to horse welfare issues - always ask your veterinarian for advice and treatment protocols for your own horse!
This past month we had a saddle fitter come and look at our saddles and lesson horses! It is the third time in the past 6 years that we've had this particular saddle fitter out. I'll even give her a name drop! Her name is Linda Ridley and her business is called The Level Headed Horse!
There are a few reasons why I like using Linda in particular that I want to share with students.
Number one is that Linda is not associated with a particular saddle maker and is not trying to sell us saddles. She is only concerned with the welfare of the horse and making sure you have a proper fitting saddle.
