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

S1E2 – 20190815: Heather Doig – CSE, CEMT, RVT

We are speaking with Heather Doig who recently joined Schleese in 2018 and has obtained her CSE status. Heather has also been a Certified Equine Massage Therapist for over 13 years and is also a Registered Veterinary Technician, experienced with both large and small animals.  Heather sought out Schleese after becoming increasingly frustrated with seeing common physical issues, time and time again, with horses and instinctively knew that incorrect saddle fit was likely part of the equation and needed to be addressed if horses were to maintain a healthy status. Heather discusses some of the common physical ailments that she can with certainty pinpoint ill-fitting tack as a culprit.

S1E1 – 20190801: Christy Scotch

Today, we are excited to speak with Grand Prix rider Christy Scotch who is now riding her mare ‘Darya’ in her Schleese Let’s Dance dressage saddle (which incidentally was designed by Anne Gribbons who is a 5* FEI Judge, Past USEF Coach and an Olympic Caliber Trainer). Christy has kindly offered to share some of the immense challenges she faced before riding in a Schleese saddle and how she has overcome these hurdles with the Let’s Dance Schleese saddle. Christy will also share some of the roadblocks she faced when working with riders and their horses that unfortunately were in a situation whereby either the rider, the horse or both were using saddles ill-suited. She now readily shares her knowledge of the importance of correct saddle fit to both horse and rider with her students so they too may be off to a better start in their riding careers however long or short they may be.

Hello Jochen, Just wanted to let you know that Damon has improved a lot since using the Obrigado saddle and it hasn't even been two weeks. The bumps along his spine on the left side are almost gone and he is cantering much more comfortably. But the biggest change that I notice is in the muscles just behind the saddle, they are actually loose and moving with each step, which has not been the case in other saddles. I am very encouraged by these changes in such a short time and wanted to say thank you. At the January Wellington Show, we won both of his classes with his high score being 80.8% - we received our highest marks ever at the canter, 8.5. We are looking forward to the rest of the show season and hope to see you further down the trail! Thanks again, we will keep you posted.
