Fit is Everything - Infinitely Adjustable for Optimal Comfort & Performance!

Fully Custom  Saddles

The Schleese Full Custom saddle is made to meet your unique requirements. A custom plaster “butt” cast is taken and the seat is made fully custom for you, above and beyond our regular “customization” options second to none on the market.

Limited Edition Saddles

The Schleese Limited Edition includes all the characteristics of a full custom saddle. In addition, it also includes two personal visits by Jochen Schleese, Certified Master Saddler and Saddle Ergonomist. The first is to measure your horse, and the second is for personal delivery of your saddle (anywhere in the USA or Canada).  Only a limited number are available per year.

Article Collage-RGBThe many male and female “butt casts” that Jochen Schleese has made over the years clearly indicates the obvious anatomical differences in pelvic structure between the two sexes.  Although these two riders are very similar in body shape on the outside, their “butt casts clearly show the differences in their pelvic points of reference.  Below the male (right) has two points of contact on the saddle at the seat bones, which are closer together than those of the female (left). In addition, the female pelvis has a third point of contact at the front (her pubic symphysis).

Testimonials

I write to extend my gratitude once again and express my pleasure in meeting Jochen Schleese and Christiane Noelting this last weekend (March 8) at the Schleese clinic at Los Lagos. I was thoroughly impressed by the personable yet professional manner in which they conducted the saddle evaluation and fitting process. My beloved mare Greta and I have endured quite a journey from injury to recovery and have struggled to progress in training. I had suspected but am now thoroughly convinced that my current saddle is a major obstacle to that progression. Riding in the Obrigado was nothing short of liberating. I now humbly acknowledge that I have been riding in a poorly suited saddle but I am also redeemed that we were able to demonstrate that we are capable of so much more in our riding (during the test ride). It is quite evident that Jochen has a solid understanding of equine and human anatomy and biomechanics and that this serves as the foundation upon which this tremendous line of saddles is based. It was such a transformation between the two rides. Christiane gave great care and attention to Greta and me in schooling us during the test ride and did so freely. I anticipate that this is not part of the standard process and so I wanted to ensure that you all knew how appreciative I was that she took the time to share her expertise. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and philosophy.
