Schleese Video “Beyond the 9 Points of Saddle Fitting
Named as Finalist in the NY Equus Film Festival

The Equus Film Festival is the first film festival oriented around equestrian themed content from all over the world. Storytellers show the rich history and diverse tapestry of horses in human culture through equestrian content. There are feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, training videos (like ours!) art, and literary submissions. The Film Festival was created to highlight and award the diverse and creative efforts of all who pay artistic homage to the horse. In 2016, the festival hosted over 150 films at the Village East Cinema in NYC, gathered from 17 countries around the world.

Beyond the 9 Points of Saddle Fit will be showing on Friday November 17 at 4:15 pm at the pop-up gallery. This compilation of educational information enlightens equestrians and equine professionals at all levels to possible causes for symptomatic issues resulting from poor saddle fit, including lameness, muscle atrophy, sore backs and ‘bad behavior’.

The festival takes place from November 17-19, 2017 at the Helen Mills Theatre in NYC, 135 W 26th Street. (212-243-6200)

Testimonials

I have a 12 year old Pura Raza Espanol (PRE) horse who has proved to be a real challenge to fit saddle-wise. He is classically Baroque in shape with a short back, big shoulders, wide chest, and thick muscled mutton withers that have been the downfall of two saddles. After I noticed the deterioration of his back muscles I tried adjusting his current saddle to no avail. I had seen Jochen Schleeses videos online about saddle fit and how he developed the Obrigado saddle. I understood everything the Lusitano breeder mentioned in the video had been explaining to him. I was fairly certain that was the saddle for me so spoke to a number of women in my barn who ride in the Schleese saddles for feedback. After listening to the fourth woman rave excitedly about her Schleese saddle (my inquiries included an equine message therapist who owns a mare from the same breeder as my guy and rides in the Obrigado) I called for a fitting hoping for miracles. It was pretty close to that. Natalie put a 17.5" Obrigado on my fellow, which was ½ inch smaller than my other saddles. She assured me I wouldn’tt feel the pressure on my pelvis that always caused me to go with the 18"seat. The funniest thing was my horse’s expression. As we tightened the girth he turned and looked at me as if to say, "Hey what is this? It feels different." I got on and yes, there was a miracle. Or as close to one as one could get having a horse go from stiff on the bit and hollow through the body, to yielding in all places, rounding into contact and actually executing a 10 metre volte softly with no resistance. The counter canter no longer felt like I was seated on a whirling blender, with my horse twisting wildly under me as we came around corners. The canter was up in front and I started exclaiming about my new horse! Perhaps the biggest reveal for me was when I dismounted. For the first time in 2 ½ years I got out of the saddle with no pain in my lower back or left hip. My legs weren’tt even stiff. The saddle literally corrected my posture each time I felt myself slipping. It helped me regain that three point seat they all rave about in the books and there was no constant dragging my legs back to get them into position. I could not believe the fit of a saddle could make such a difference not only for my horse but for me as a 5'3" petite woman. I actually apologized to my horse for putting him through two bad fitting saddles. He is a very charitable fellow so I think he forgave me.
