The Continuum is our Virtual Custom Fit System (VCFS) Dressage saddle with the Hybrid panel. After years of development and testing, this is the most exciting dressage saddle we have ever produced. The test results are unimaginable with the weight dispersing benefits of the Hybrid that allow you to feel one with the horse’s back. The Continuum is made with high-quality European Soft Leather and is available in a double flap and offers a variety of size options, thigh block options and configurations to best accommodate your measurements. Our VCFS line uses our Q-AdapTree with infinite adjustability, PSI technology and our patented crotch comfort seat that has made us the choice of women around the world. In this fast-changing world, we now live in, it’s more important than ever that you have options. Our number one concern is the comfort of you and your horse and now with the Virtual Custom Fit System, you and your horse can always ride pain-free.
The Hybrid option is available with two types of panels. The first option is our Standard Panel with Shoulder Relief and the second option is our Therapeutic Panel with the Shoulder Rolling System. Both panels come with our TruForm fitting pad which gives this saddle a very innovative look. With either option you can quickly and easily fit any horse by simply changing your TruForm Fitting pad and making adjustments to the 3P Gullet Plate. Both options utilize the flexible shock absorbing foam and PSI technology. The Hybrid options offer a truly outstanding weight distribution with its unique combination of design elements. (Jumper saddle model shown as example). Please follow the Therapeutic Panel with the Shoulder Rolling System (SRS) for further information.

TruForm Fitting Pad
Our TruForm Fitting Pad is unique to Schleese and has been developed for our VCFS Hybrid saddles. The pad is custom fit in order to offer maximum comfort and correct fit to the horse. Most “shim pads” on the market offer only minimal flexibility when adjustments are needed to correct balance front to back and can often slip around under the saddle putting unnecessary pressure on one of the 14 reflex points causing negative behaviour making the fit of the saddle to horse even worse. Our TruForm Fitting Pad stays in place and has 16 shimming options including the saddle support area.
Our TruForm Fitting Pad is included free of charge with all VCFS Hybrid saddles and is also available for sale to be used under the VCFS IP saddle for $289 (without fleece) and $319 (with fleece). One set of fitting inserts come with the pad however if added or replacement inserts are needed they come in a package for $150.00.
