At Schleese Saddlery we recognize the unique physiology of female riders focusing on our mission as the female saddle specialist.

Having proven the benefits of proper female fitting in the English riding markets, we are pleased to introduce the same, successful philosophy to the Western dressage riding market with the introduction of our Cadence Saddle.

As stated by our founder, Jochen Schleese, “In a world that has historically had a ‘one size fits all’ mentality, our hand constructed well appointed, superior quality western saddle is the only brand that ensures maximum comfort and performance custom made for female riders – achieving the perfect partnership between horse and rider for the ultimate riding experience”.

We accomplish this through unparalleled craftsmanship, world-class experience, and superior fitting practices.  Our infinitely adjustable saddles are designed for the female physiology, creating truly life-changing comfort and responsiveness.

    I love this saddle, so does my horse. We primarily trail ride, and it can be scary out there! This saddle gives me the stability I need. It is also very comfortable. I really appreciate the way the saddle was custom fit to me and my horse. When it arrived, everything was ready to go. The stirrups were turned out perfectly, the saddle did not pinch my horse, and the saddle seat fit my seat just right. Even the way the billet holes were punched on a slant made for a quick and easy tack up. For the first time in 22 years of riding, the sweat pattern on my horse’s back was even and correct! I am so happy I took the plunge and ordered a Schleese saddle. I hope the company comes out with more saddle pad colors. I love the black pad that came with it, but it’s fun to have choices.
