Foggy Mountain Dog Coats

Stole my shoe but how can you be mad at that face… And Atlee LOVES her fleece from Foggy Mountain Dog Coats Kristi does beautiful work! (And if you have a dog, cat or even chicken who needs a coat – she can hook you up. Seriously!)

Check out their FB page for the beautiful selection.

Winter Blanket Season

I can’t wait for winter blanket season to be OVER! Don’t forget if you’re out and about this weekend to stop in to Stablemates Saddlery if you need anything. There’s always great deals to be had and it’s great to support our local businesses.

Young Horse Training

Do you have a young horse that needs a bit more time than you can give in a busy winter? Consider sending your horse to Katie for training.
Katie specializes in training horses for eventing, but welcomes horses from any discipline.

She has vast experience training horses for the hunter or jumper circuit. Katie’s patient personality, combined with her years of experience, make her an excellent choice for green or difficult horses. She makes the owner’s goal her own goal, and works to create successful partnerships between horse and rider.

Reach out to Katie here or send an email to for more information and to see if you horse would benefit from Katie’s training program this winter.

Shock Absorbing Saddle Pad

Fits like a glove! My ThinLine Global shock absorbing saddle pad (it’s there, but it’s so thin and form fitting, you can barely see it!) is the perfect match to my Voltaire Design USA & Canada Lexington jumping saddle. Together they keep me in perfect balance and connection no matter what I’m doing!
