Q)  What is Your Role at Dover Saddlery?

A)  I have been riding now for 27 years and started when I was  five years old.

Q)  What Discipline Do You Ride?
A)  I grew up riding saddle seat, but when I bought my Mustang almost nine years ago I switched gears and now do trail riding, small pleasure shows and hunter paces.

A)  Probably the first time I took my horse up to Acadia National Park in Maine for a week of camping with my friends. It was such a fulfilling experience to be able to ride on the gorgeous carriage trails and take in the views from the mountains.

Q)  What’s Your Favorite Product?
A)  I’d have to say my Wintec 2000 AP Saddle. It’s perfect for the type of riding I do. It’s lightweight and comfortable for my horse and myself. Also, since it’s synthetic I can get it wet at the beach or ponds and I don’t worry about ruining any leather. I’ve had it for about a decade now and it’s still in great shape.
