The Saddler’s Post – Erica Allen

Christian Lowe 7 December 2023 2803 126 4

share close

Saddlers & leather workers from around the world join host Christian Lowe to share stories and secrets on the leather trade and the art and life of making, repairing, and selling saddles and other equipment for horses.

Erica Allen is the new owner of Christian Lowe Leather Care, having purchased it from Christian Lowe. They have a conversation on the business.

People who know Erica well, know that she has always been really in-tune with the horses she surrounds herself with; constantly striving for improvements, no matter how subtle or small. So it comes as no surprise that sharing her education & knowledge to make other peoples horses more comfortable would be of interest to her.  Given her years working in veterinary medicine, as well as sales revolving around the comfort or horses all around the world, the services Erica offers all logically fell into place as the perfect union to enhance the comfort of horses. 

Erica is also a dressage rider, coach and trainer known for her attention to rider position, balance and subtle use of all aids to communicate with the horse in a kind and fair manner. She strongly believes there is always room for improvement.  While her passion lays in dressage, her eye & experience isn’t limited to that discipline. Many people may be surprised to find out that her passion was swayed by an accident resulting in a broken back. It was a blessing in disguise resulting in her uncharacteristic ability to pin point and discuss minute points & feelings that most riders have not contemplated about themselves or their mounts.
