Contacting Dennis Lane

Recommended Posts

Every time I try to send email to the address on his site, it comes back as not deliverable. I want to order a set of cards, but also want to know the availability/wait time before I send billing info online. Anyone heard from him lately?

I know he is still making cards. I don't know the wait. I sent off an e-mail showing him this thread. Hopefully he will pop in here. If you want, PM me and I can give you the e-mail address I have for him and see if it works or not for you.

Hi Hugh.

I don't know why the link on the web site doesn't work, the orders that are placed there are coming though fine. We did have a lot of problem with spam at one stage, and when we changed the web site that was fixed. I am a member here and do look in from time to time.You can PM me though here if you like, or my email address is , dmlane at aapt dot net dot au , hopefully if I write it this way I won't attract unwanted traffic. For those that order a set of cards please be patient, it is taking about 4 weeks on average for me to process orders. I do apologize for the time frame but it is the best I can do for now. For those that have received their set of cards. If you need any help though the learning curve, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Dennis

Dennis,

I checked out your webpage and watched the video and I must say I was very impressed. I believe you have an excellent system and I plan on ordering at least one set, maybe a couple. Have you been able to establish a chart of tree specs from your cards? In other words, can I just take the results of which cards fit and match them to a particular bar angle, width, rocker etc.?

Brent.

The short answer is yes, that is the idea. What you have to do to make this work for you, is make up a chart for every tree maker that you use. If you talk to your tree maker or makers they may already be using the system and have done this for you. There is a learning curve on the calibration side. The cards take care of the identifying of the shape.

Dennis.

OK, sounds good. I look forward to using the system.

I wrote a blog post about how we work with the Dennis Lane system. http://www.rodnikkel.com/content/index.php/saddle-tree-blog-from-shop-and-desk/how-we-use-the-dennis-lane-equine-back-profiling-system-numbers/ We agree with Dennis that this is how everyone needs to correlate what they order from every maker with what their maker's specs are, because every maker does thing differently, you know... :) However, we don't go around publishing what our correlations are for a few reasons. One is that our specs won't be everyone else's specs for the same fit. (I wrote the Bar angles: why the numbers are meaningless between makers web page to help explain why: http://www.rodnikkel.com/content/index.php/tree-and-saddle-fitting/bar-angles-why-the-numbers-are-meaningless-between-makers/) Another reason is that people have differences in how they like a tree to fit. (Imagine, not everyone agrees on saddle fit. Hmmm...) Plus there is so much to learn about horses' backs when you have an objective standard to compare them to, and so you can compare between horses as well. Once you know "The backs are the same here but different in this section", you can put up the same tree on both horses and check those differnt places. You see things you didn't notice before. I know we have learned a lot using it. Have fun!

Loved the articles. Great info and instructions on measuring. May I have permission to link to them from my website?
