Product Description

The LightFlight is the next-generation in advanced horse and rider comfort and performance. The saddle features the innovative Schleese shoulder relief cut-back panel to provide the best shoulder relief in the industry. Our adjustable lightweight AdapTree can be adjusted ongoing to your horse and to any future horses. The LightFlight also features our new revolutionary PSI panel system to maximize the weight bearing surface throughout the panel with an unheard-of lowest pressure per square inch of any English saddle in the industry! See our PSI Panel System information (patent pending).

The LightFlight is suited for eventers and jumpers and comes with a variety of flap, panel, billeting, size, color and style options. The extra soft seat and narrow twist allow the rider to sit “into” the horse, rather than “on top of” the horse,  for an extremely close contact feel. The new mono flap “LightFlight” has been test-ridden by Canadian Three Day Event Olympian Edie Tarves, who said, “ this saddle affords me the ultimate close contact feel and lets my horse move with wonderful freedom! “

Take flight today with the new Schleese LightFlight!

Testimonials

Ten years ago I purchased a lovely three yr. old Friesian cross to train for dressage, not realizing the size he would attain for my small frame.  He quickly outgrew my extra wide saddle and my other hoop tree saddle was so very painful for my hips that I actually was diagnosed with torn labral cartilage and subsequent further OA degeneration of both hip joints.  I then began to ride in my other trail saddle with panels that "sort of" fit the broad back/mutton withers but completely destroyed attempts at a effective dressage position and continued to be very painful for me. Having spent a summer with a driving instructor and realizing that was not for me, my only choice seemed to be selling my now beautifully trained and well loved horse and finding a "skinny little one" I could perhaps ride after the recommended bilateral hip replacement surgeries. By now you can probably see where this note is going; yes, I signed up for a Schleese evaluation last summer, rode in a loaner until my custom was made and now, after several weeks in my new Schleese, even the severe and chronic tendinitis has mostly healed and finally at age 74, I'm working with a Centered Riding instructor, attending clinics and riding better than I ever have on Mr. Propane Tank. So, thank you for the extensive time and effort you have taken to develop saddles that enable us little older women to continue to enjoy what we have devoted so many years to attaining even with our imperfect joints, and in my case, to avoid drastic surgeries.
