    **UPDATE**

    I had our original saddle fitter come out in the beginning of March and fit the pony for a new saddle. It arrived in all it's splendor but unfortunately did not fit the pony at all. ...
  2. Great Advice! How do I reach Claude? Thanks! ...

    Great Advice! How do I reach Claude? Thanks!

    Remi - sounds like a nightmare! I'm trying really hard to get a new Voltaire but honestly we are on a reduced workload now in the critical months...
  3. Well I'm having bad luck with service now......

    Well I'm having bad luck with service now... Voltaire was supposed to come out already but I keep getting put off. And then I just get told that they can't come out until mid to late march because...
  4. Sounds heavenly!!! Congratulations! :)

    Sounds heavenly!!! Congratulations! :)
  5. Sydney Bowen did send my money back to me...

    Sydney Bowen did send my money back to me finally. I'm not sure if she thought that would get the law off of her since I started the criminal process? I was very lucky to get my money back, but...
  6. Anne mentioned there is another foam option too-...

    Anne mentioned there is another foam option too- a thicker softer foam can be used. I haven't gone thru the new fitting process with Voltaire yet to get more details.

    Woodhills- let us know how...
  7. I don't know about Voltaire in California... But...

    I don't know about Voltaire in California... But for clarity - we sold other saddles and stuff on our own to build the $$$ for our first used Voltaire. I'm likely going to do the junior program...

    It's because Rachel at iselltack is *AWESOME*.

    Rachel - you actually helped me and my daughter try a few saddles at a show a few weeks ago... Thanks for all your help! Will be in touch about...

    I also used Anne for my used Voltaire - and when I told her the problems we were having she 2-day shipped a special chiropractic pad to use until I can get a new saddle!!! Excellent customer service...

    Am I bringing you to the dark side? ??

    I heard Devoucoux does a similar program. With Voltaire, it's essentially $500 a year for a new saddle, fitted to rider and horse, every year (after you have...

    I asked the other saddle rep if he had ever sat in a Voltaire and he had not. ;) I find my daughter's to be very comfy (versus my Devoucoux) and she adores it. She doesn't care for the Devoucoux,...
  12. Voltaire saddles - hard on horse's back? **UPDATE, Page 2**

    I bought a used Voltaire saddle for my pony and kid and unfortunately the pony's back is sore from the saddle. It was used and not fitted to him but a decent fit (not good enough obviously). So I'm...
  13. Where are the husky show coats for kids? Or "non-string bean" coats?

    Need kids coats that have more room in the waste. Bigger kids sizes result in huge arm pit cuts and long arms. Women's coats won't fit at all. Any Suggestions for blocky less tailored kids coats? ...

    Nope! Not Zooey! It's an unfortunate situation on many levels for the owner and horse.
  15. Great discussion and really it brings up the...

    Great discussion and really it brings up the recurring uncertainty. The horse's care is primary to the situation and the owner has focused on that (and will continue to do so) first and foremost. ...
  16. Yes Atlas, those are the terms in the lease...

    Yes Atlas, those are the terms in the lease itself. I just used the general terminology in this post that is frequently used in regular conversations in my area.
  17. Sorry gumshoe, I fixed that sentence. I think...

    Sorry gumshoe, I fixed that sentence. I think the real question is beyond the uncovered vet bills, and really a question about how libel is the leaser for the cost of the horse since their...
  18. Thanks for the feedback so far. There was a...

    Thanks for the feedback so far. There was a contract which stipulated that the horse must be maintained and returned as a sound hunter (at the level showing). It also noted that the horse was sound...
  19. Anybody ever heard of a leaser being sued for damage to horse?

    I would like to know how common or realistic this is in the real world?

    This would be for a situation where a nice horse was leased to a BNT and client, and was wounded in a trailer incident while...

    Thanks for the good feedback. I don't know about her scores- she was bred by Barbara Pappas and I think was about 3 when Barbara passed. I have plenty of breeding experience but not the setup to do...

    Value of the hunter broodmare?

    I have just received my mare back from a horrible lease situation. She may have a career ending injury sustained while on lease. We are still evaluating our options for her hunter career vs...

    Update! At this time the state has decided to charge Sydney Bowen in CRIMINAL court and will be setting her arraignment date shortly. From what I was told by the police, this means if she decides...
