Hi, I bought an older used Schleese a week or so ago and got it just in the nick of time to have it fitted [by your fitter at the last clinic]. I can’t believe the difference it’s made in my horse! Our first ride was just lovely. We had our 2nd ride today, and she is moving like a different horse! I feel like I’m part of my horse. We’ve had our share of saddle woes and attempts at fittings through the years. How nice to be able to give her the gift of a saddle that really fits her—and can be adjusted as she changes shape! Not only is my mare difficult to fit, but I am, too. I have a very long femur and my knee has always stuck so far out in front of the saddle or my knees were so wide, there was no way for me to sit properly. Not a problem for the Schleese! In fact, I was amazed that when I rode in this saddle on my very round horse that I felt like she was suddenly much narrower because my leg was actually in the correct position. I even had to shorten my stirrups! I can’t thank you enough. We’re looking forward to many more wonderful rides together and I can’t see myself ever riding in anything other than a Schleese!
