Bonita – Testimonial

I recently had the chance to try a saddle that finally fits me! I rode in the 16″ Schleese Bonita dressage saddle. I only stand at 4’3″ tall and the first issue is my leg length in comparison to flap length and being able to have a physical contact and connection with a horse! The second issue I usually face is the fact saddles are way too wide and stretch me to the point of doing the splits while riding and tearing my muscles in the groin from stress and too wide a twist. Although I may be the height of a child,  I am nonetheless a fully grown 25-year-old woman, with developed hips and pelvis just like an average height woman. The Bonita may be considered a pony saddle and more a saddle for younger children, but really any petite rider would be amazed at the comfort and connection it can bring to horse and rider, it’s astounding! I recommend any petite ladies or gentleman to give it a try and disregard the fact that it’s a “youth and pony” saddle. It’s just another saddle model made to perfection by Schleese to cater to petite statured people of all ages!

Testimonials

First of all it was amazing to be a recipient of a saddle. I can still hardly believe it! Although I’ve only had the saddle for a short time I have noticed some things:

  1. It’s comfortable, it puts me in an excellent position and it doesn’t weigh a ton. I’m able to easily lift it onto my six-year-old mare who is over 16.1hh.
  2. My mare, Spring Song, moves beautifully in the saddle and loves it. No histrionics while saddling her. Just a sweet look and a mare ready to go for a ride.
  3. My riding coach pointed out the saddle’s gullet. It’s wide and comfortable for Spring Song.
  4. A friend who knows his way around saddles helped me fine-tune the adjustment on Spring Song. This was easy to do because of the webbing adjustment on both sides at the back of the saddle.
  5. He pointed out that the tree is adjustable, too. Yippee!
  6. Although Spring Song doesn’t have a long back (or a short one) it’s a relief that my new saddle isn’t too long. Length is most certainly a deal breaker (or maker!).
  7. In the past thirty years we’ve experienced with each of our horses the arduous search for the right saddle at various stages of each horse’s training and life. This translated to five saddles in 20 years for one Thoroughbred and three saddles in nine years for each of our two Lusitanos. With the adjustable capabilities of the Schleese saddle I’m looking forward to a lifetime of comfort for Spring Song. No saddle hunting for her!
