Schleese in the media: CHA Podcast: Saddle Fit with Jochen Schleese.

“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.”
