Happy New Year!


A rather belated Happy New Year to all my customers and followers! I hope you managed to have some time out to relax and recharge your batteries over the Christmas holiday and are staying safe at the moment. What a strange time it is, with us back in the limbo of another lockdown and unsure of when we will be out competing again. I know a lot of my customers are struggling with the combination of fit horses and either frozen ground or bottomless mud - it’s certainly a tough time to be a horse owner, isn’t it? We’re still fitting saddles for our customers AMZ is still open during this lockdown and I’m travelling to fit saddles across the UK, but with a range of measures in place to ensure visits are safe and Covid-19 secure. If you’re keen to get your saddle checked and fitted or get a brand-new saddle ordered then make sure you give me a call. When I’m coming to your yard, please ensure that you wear a face mask and sanitise your hands and the saddle before my arrival. I also ask that only one person - the owner or rider - is present during the visit to minimise contact. That way we can all stay safe; horses can have their saddles checked and I can keep working - thank you. Something to look forward to - new life at AMZ! It’s lambing time here at AMZ HQ which is certainly keeping us busy! It’s a tough job heading out into the cold and dark to check the ewes when you know that most people (and even fellow hardy horsey folk) are tucked up in front of their log burner. But of course, that’s all part of life when you farm sheep...! And after the hard work is over, we get the joyous sight (and sound) of lambs and ewes frolicking in the fields together. That, along with daffodils coming into flower and the sun having enough warmth to it to help dry out the mud, are the fabulous signs that spring has arrived. Those days will be here before we know it! Young horses to be started Another job that’s keeping us busy this lockdown is starting some of our young horses. Of course, it can be a hairy job at times (maybe the lambing isn’t so bad after all…) but it’s exciting to see how the young horses are shaping up. It’s hard not to start imagining what they might achieve when they start their careers and planning the next 5 years in my head. Here’s hoping we have some competitions running to look forward to in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, stay safe and well and I look forward to seeing some of you soon for saddle fitting.
