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!

I wanted to drop you a note and let you know that destiny will have it that all roads in my life seem to lead to Schleese! I am now trimming for Margaret Boyce and her students in NY and I did know how close she was with the Schleese team. When we discover this, I of coarse was jumping out of my skin for the opportunity to see Jochen at a fitting nearby and drop in to say Hi. I have not forgotten all of you and the opportunity that was before us last year, I think that the future will hold something for us I will hope that destiny will continue to bring me right where I belong despite my over thinking it all. As my kids are getting older, I see that there is much potential for growth and you guys are always on my mind! I had the opportunity to ride Margaret's horse in a lesson and I wrote a story about it I thought you might enjoy. I like to write about experiences that seem to be "Big" in my life and I truly savor the emotion and memories by writing. I thought I would share with you my little story about Big, especially since he was in a gorgeous HK that I so enjoyed riding in...and the dynamic of balanced hoof care combined with good training and saddle fitting was thoroughly enjoyed by me on this day! Hope you are well, I can still hear your voice on the other line and replay all of our chats in my mind, and I wanted to thank you for your support and understanding during that time of turmoil for me. You never know what the future holds. I’ll be probably popping up on Jochen here and there and around in NJ PA and NY if ever he just needs a spare set of hands. I so enjoy the learning from him and all working with all the pretty horses! Schleese is a part of the explosions of learning that I speak of in this story! Best regards to you and all of the Schleese team! (Especially Julia who I have met and adore!)
