Resolve Pain & Improve Comfort

You will work 1 on 1 with our Certified Equine Ergonomist as they analyze the data you submitted to detect why you or your horse may be experiencing pain and how to fix it. Helping horses and riders ride pain-free is what Schleese is all about, and our Certified Saddle Fit Ergonomists will help get you there!

Improve Horse Behaviour & Attitude

It is quite common to think a horse's behaviour is not saddle fit related but it is more commonly the culprit than one thinks. It's important to not confuse bad behaviour & attitude with pain. In our program, we take out the guesswork and help you understand what your horse is really telling you.

Our Professional Saddle Fit Evaluation has helped people just like YOU resolve pain, increase comfort, gain valuable insights and improve horse behaviour!

Martha Wunder 

New Tripoli, PA

When the horse is free to move and use his body without pain or hindrance, the benefits are endless

My little TB gelding developed muscle and movement that I had not thought possible and his overall comfort and soundness very vastly improved after 6 months in his Schleese saddle. Every event horse I’ve owned since has been fitted with a Schleese saddle. When the horse is free to move and use his body without pain or hindrance, the benefits are endless.


Terri Fountain

Victoria, AUS

It has helped me so much in understanding both of my horses bodies.

I couldn’t be happier. It (the saddle) put me in the right position and he felt so good under me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge online. It has helped me so much in understanding both of my horses bodies.

Mary Bahniuk

Harvard, MA

The science behind saddle fitting and the lengths the team went to was unlike any saddle fitting I had ever seen! 

The very first thing I was drawn to by Schleese was their meticulous saddle fitting program. I have confidence knowing each time I ride my horses in a Schleese that the saddle is fit to their particular needs and that it can be adjusted to fit their ever-changing bodies as they develop.

Imagine the positive impact a properly fitted saddle will have on both you and your horse's life!

Debbie Gibeau 

Eckville, AB

I am now a balanced rider and Coco is a happy [and] who is willing to do his work everyday.

I have had Coco my Dutch Warmblood for 6 years and found it very difficult to fit a saddle for his very large shoulder, long wither and extremely short back. After years of searching buy and trying, with no luck, I finally made an appointment with Natalie Sauner from Schleese in our Alberta area. Coco and I are elated to finally have found the saddle for us!

Edie Tarves

Uxbridge, ON 

Knowing I will be pain-free speaks volumes.

My horses are pain-free and able to train and learn with no restrictions from ill-fitting tack allowing them to reach their maximum potential. At the end of the day, knowing I will be pain-free speaks volumes. 

Emily Morris

Avella, PA

He’s happy and no longer reactive and spooky as his back is pain free!!

I am thrilled with the saddles and the fitters ! My 17 yr old draft cross has the cleanest spine they had ever seen when he had a bone scan done too see where arthritis was . His spine was clean . He only has been ridden in a Schleese. Just wanted to tell you how much this new saddle has changed my horse. My super short Obrigado [saddle] saved Pete.

Rider Video Testimonial with Hannah Kate Stallo

About The Program Creator, Jochen Schleese.

For the last 40+ years, Jochen Schleese has dedicated his life to protecting horse & rider from long term damage through properly fitted saddles & ongoing education.


What he found over his years of research is that not only were the horses being affected by ill-fitting saddles but riders were as well. He also discovered that many female riders were struggling with pain and health issues from riding in saddles designed for male riders (due to pelvic and anatomical differences).

In 1986, Jochen started Schleese Saddlery Service to combat these issues.

Fast Forward to today and Schleese is the world leader in gender correct saddles, which can be fit and adjusted according to the biomechanics of movement and the development of the horse, through Personal On-Site or Online Saddle Fit Evaluations.

By combining our revolutionary Professional 80-Point Saddle Fit Evaluations with our infinitely adjustable saddles, we have helped over 200K+ horse & riders – ride PAIN FREE!


Jochen is the author of the best-selling book, “Suffering in Silence: The Saddle Fit Link to Physical and Psychological Trauma in Horses” and is known as the leading expert in the field. He has won many awards for his contribution to the equine world and has been featured in Wall Street Journal & Discovery Channel.


So it's safe to say you're in great hands!

NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE AN ILL-FITTING SADDLE?

Many riders may not be aware of common challenges and health issues caused by ill fitting saddles! Your saddle is the interface between your horse’s horizontal spine and your vertical spine, to distribute your weight comfortably over the horse’s saddle support area.

We operate under the firm belief that horses do not consciously behave badly, they react to outside stimuli, wether it be a poorly fitted saddle or an unbalanced rider causing these kinds of behaviors.

While every horse and confirmation type is different, there are quite a few ways that you can verify if your saddle may be causing discomfort for you or your horse.

ARE YOU EXPERIENCING....

  • poor position
  • feeling unbalanced/ instability in the saddle
  • behind or in front of the horse’s motion
  • back, neck, hip, knee, pelvic discomfort/ pain
  • feeling ‘pulled apart’
  • recurring bladder infections
  • falling into a ‘chair-seat’
  • swinging legs
  • knees and toes turned out


IS YOUR HORSE SHOWING SIGNS OF...

  • resistance or unwanted behaviour
  • stumbling or tripping
  • gait irregularities
  • refusing jumps
  • 'leg moving’
  • busy tongue, head tossing
  • sore sensitive back or swelling
  • undiagnosed symptomatic lameness
  • hollow back , white hairs or girthiness

IF YOU'RE EXPERIENCING 1 OR MORE OF THE SYMPTOMS ABOVE... YOU MAY HAVE A SADDLE FIT PROBLEM!

Join our Professional Online Saddle Fit Evaluation today & get customized saddle solutions for maximizing comfort, balance and control.  

"You really make us feel like you care, understand and are always trying to help"

Before getting my custom fitted Schleese saddle, my mare, Rubi, was experiencing back problems. Being gray and close to the blood, she’s a very sensitive horse and the slightest saddle misfit translates into major skin irritation and hollowing/ twisting of the back. After riding her in a Schleese saddle for a year, including a demanding show season, her back is now perfect! With her back being stronger and freer, her canter is also more powerful. I’m so grateful for Jochen’s master skills as a saddle fitter and biomechanics expert: a lot of knowledge goes into these precise fittings. A special thank you!

MELANIE BOURQUE // Quebec, ON

"The availability of movement for the horse without interference is incredible"

As soon as I saw the Schleese Western Saddle I knew I had to own one and once I tried it, I was in love.  The availability of movement for the horse without interference is incredible and having the peace of mind that the saddle fits my horse perfectly and will continue to do so because of its adjustability, gives me the ability to focus on my riding and communication.  I can’t say enough about the features and benefits of this saddle not to mention the incredible ongoing support provided by our saddle fitter, Heather Doig, the fact that an equine body worker stands behind this brand speaks volumes to it’s quality!  

ANDREA PEASE // Melancthon, ON

"I can not stress enough how this saddle has changed my life."

I want to thank the staff for their professionalism at my saddle fitting.  I had such a great learning experience.  The information was presented in a clear manner and all of my questions answered.  I also am amazed at the quick follow up to make sure I was happy with my saddle.  The technology used to build and design these saddles is mind blowing.  My saddle fits my horse so well and I have never been this comfortable riding in my life.  I know my horse is so grateful every time I put the saddle on and off. I can not stress enough how this saddle has changed my life.  Thank you so much!

"The Schleese team is just as meticulous about the health and well-being of the horses as we are."

They will take their time with you and your horse until they get everything just right. We have so many different types and shapes of horses coming through our barn. Schleese works with each horse individually. We have at least 5-6 different models of Schleese saddles in our barn at any given time. Prior to our knowledge of Schleese’s expert customization, we would tell riders to try the model of saddle they like (usually on a saddle stand) and then have it fit for their horse. We now see that the horse chooses the model and fit. The rider immediately feels better because the horse goes happily forward with much more ease of motion. It’s such a satisfying feeling when we have horses re-checked for fit and see that they have gained much more muscle over their top lines! 

TODD Bryan // The Bryan Center

"Schleese is your Answer!"

I have been a Schleese client for over 10 years. I was first introduced to Schleese by a dressage friend, who convinced me to purchase a saddle for my spindly little TB gelding at the time. After six months in his custom Schleese saddle, he was no longer spindly! He developed muscle and movement that I had not thought possible and his overall comfort and soundness were vastly improved. Needless to say, I was hooked and every event horse I’ve owned since has been fitted with a Schleese saddle! Schleese truly puts the horse’s comfort and performance front and center. When the horse is free to move and use his body without pain or hindrance, the benefits are endless. He won’t be compensating and overloading his joints. Resistance behaviors are diminished. Your horse will enjoy his work and be able to reach his full potential. Schleese is also constantly developing new and better technologies, allowing their clients to take advantage of the most cutting-edge saddles available. If you want a saddle that is truly customized for you and your horse AND will be able to change and adapt as your horse develops, Schleese is your answer!

"On the same wavelength as myself..."

Dear Jochen: Several years ago I read a review of your book, ordered it immediately, read it several times over & realized that here was someone that was on the same wavelength as myself. This was re-emphasized over the last several days. It was a real pleasure to meet you in person, learn from you & feel inspired to continue to keep trying to improve the lot of the horse.
