I just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying my new Eagle saddle. I got my saddle on a Tuesday and had a 2.5 hour trail ride scheduled for the next day. I was a little apprehensive about using the new saddle as I thought I would need to "break it in" first, especially with all the ups and downs in our mountain riding. Well, I was so eager to use it that I rode in it anyway and it was amazing. This is my fourth Schleese saddle (hunter/jumper, dressage and trail) and even though I've been very satisfied with each one, this is by far the best and most comfortable. My first saddle (the one I replaced) was a hunter/jumper and I was very surprised to find out from you that it was 14 years old. So much has changed during that time, both in saddles and in my horse. The adjustable tree in the Eagle is wonderful, especially since you were able to adjust it to my horse on the premises and will be able to make adjustments in the future, if needed. As you know, I have a skin condition that is aggravated by chafing and even though my last saddle was comfortable, I would often get chafed, especially on our longer rides. With the Eagle, I'm as comfortable after the ride as before and there has been absolutely no chafing. Jochen has truly extended my number of years to ride by developing this saddle. Thank you Amanda Silver of Southeast Saddle Fit for all your help getting the right fit for my horse. Thank you Schleese I absolutely love, love, love the new saddle!
