What to Watch for When Buying a Saddle

December 19th, 2016

This being the Christmas season with presumably at least some riders hoping for a saddle under the tree I thought it would be worth repeating some key points I have previously touched on. In essence you may use the “9 Points of Saddle Fit as a guide”, but here are a few extra pointers. The art of fitting a saddle to both horse and rider is something which is not ex...

Thankful for our Horses

December 6th, 2016

I’d like to share with you what I recently wrote for one of the US publications I submit to, because I feel it warrants repeating. In this season of being thankful (the recent US Thanksgiving holiday, and our upcoming Christmas celebrations), let’s take a few minutes to reflect on the horses we’ve loved and learned so much from. Pirat was my partner in many successful...

Testimonials

“I am extremely excited to be working with the high-tech saddle company Schleese.  Their innovative and ergonomic saddle design and saddle fit analyses not only fosters optimal performance, it helps protect against pain and long-term damage to both horse and rider.” “Biomechanics and injury prevention are fundamental building blocks of my methods; as a result I have done extensive research into saddle companies, their design technologies and core concepts.  The mere fact that Schleese saddles are offered in male or female pelvis versions caught my attention. I was immediately drawn to the scientific and innovative design of Schleese saddles.” “Under Schleese saddles, my horses feel comfortable and readily offer to use their whole bodies right from the beginning of each training session. The Schleese design does not touch any triggers and the wide channel gives clearance to the ligaments running along the horse’s back all while ensuring a steady and biomechanically superior bearing surface. This all helps my horses raise their toplines and really use their neck, withers and with their engaged and stable core, offer me their raised and swinging back. Without this, it is impossible to engage the hind-legs or obtain shoulder freedom.” “Schleese saddles allow me to sit forward over the horse’s center of gravity without sacrificing the option of a deep seat.  It supports correct position without locking me into one position.  I am able to fine-tune my position to influence my horses with greater freedom and more precise results.  In the Schleese saddle I can both affect and follow my horses to a high degree.” “Within the first week I witnessed dramatic results in topline improvement and my horses’ general way of going.   Students are experiencing a positive boost in their improvement which is creating great momentum for the winter months. I look forward to what is in store for our future with Schleese.”
