'Bad Horse!' - Consider Bad Behaviour From A Poorly Fitting Saddle

By Jochen Schleese|November 1st, 2014

There have been many recent articles in all sorts of publications discussing “how to slow down the rushing horse”; “how to ride the stumble out of your horse”; “how to make your horse go forward”; how to, how to, how to. Many of these negative and unwanted horse ‘behaviors’ may actually be due to something as simple as a poorly fitting saddle. This can cause an instinctive reaction by impacting reflex points, rather than the horse consciously ‘acting out’. These articles point to the fact that many of these indicators are a result of rider error, and attempt to address corrections by either offering solutions to change rider behavior (or training methods), or – more drastically – calling in a vet to administer pharmaceuticals to address specific issues.

Testimonials

30 Years of Schleese Saddle Giveaway Winner... “On behalf of the Thoroughbred Retirement Network of Louisiana, I’d like to extend our warmest thanks for such a fabulous saddle. We are beyond thrilled to have received the new Wave dressage saddle to use on our off-tracks. 'Stormin’ Eddie is heading off to Pensacola, Florida this weekend for another recognized dressage show. The difference the saddle has made for him is amazing. His lateral work, shoulders + back end are so free now. We’ve also included a picture of a few of his awards last year from the Jockey Club’s Thoroughbred Incentive Program. Again- we are so grateful to have been selected to receive such an incredible training and riding tool. It will be with us for a very long time.”

— Cindy D'Atrio, Director of the Thoroughbred Retirement Newtwork of Louisiana
