    Hi Kitt-
    We met at the saddle fitting clinic you did for Old Chatham Pony Club. I would like to get my daughter’s horse fitted and to have two Crosby saddles check to see if they could be reflocked and fitted to him. Are you planning any trips to Northern Columbia County, NY and time soon. would love to have my TB’s Black Country checked too!

    Hi Amy –
    Nice to hear from you again! I believe Sue Smith may be setting something up, so please check with her. If there’s nothing in the works, we can certainly set something up ourselves!

    Hi Kitt-
    I spoke with Sue, she said there are two women are Margie’s that need help, Donna Ross and Chris Linden, I’m not sure what their needs or availability are? I am less than ten miles away from Margie’s and would love to have my horses fitted here. I have my daughter’s high withered, broad QH/TB cross, who has a Wintec now, but I have two Crosby’s – 1-Prix St George Soft ride (w) and a Crosby old jumping saddle, that I would like to see if either would work for him? And I have my TB, who I got a Blk Country all purpose last year, would like fit checked. I work from home and am available most days, but not from 1:45 to 2:30, let me know what might work for you, thanks!
