"My horse General is a 13-year old Andalusian cross with a history of early training in an over-collected frame. Although he achieved some success in training level tests, it was difficult to get him to stretch out or generate impulsion from behind. Since obtaining his Schleese Obrigado saddle he has blossomed. His back swings more freely and his hind legs reach far underneath his body. His shoulders move much more freely in both trot and canter. The rhythm of his gaits is much improved. Within a month, his certified massage therapist noted a marked improvement in his muscles. In two recognized dressage shows in 2013, General and his rider/trainer Debbie Welch qualified for the GAIG Region 1 Finals in the Training Level Open Division"
