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 flex-tree 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.

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!

If anyone deserves a Schleese saddle it's the horse. And I mean every horse. The dressage champion as much as the trail king and everything in between. I learned that last year and I will tell you how. My friends daughter has a very sensitive Thoroughbred that she events with. George is handsome, a great jumper and... and absolute horror to tack up. He was twisting under every saddle like an eel. Gnashing his horrible teeth and- you get the picture. I recommended to look for a new saddle and that Schleese might help. The fitting was a nightmare! George was fussing and fighting. Turns out that he has a very short back. So short in fact, that none of the demo saddles even worked. My friend decided to order a new Schleese. It was like a miracle! After using it for a short time, George started to relax while tacking up. No more snapping and eye rolling. The muscle spasms in his back stopped, and he started to enjoy petting and scratches. He is not perfect, and probably never will be after years of ill fitting saddles, but he is better. Why would I deserve a Schleese? My horse Radar would love it. I have a dressage Schleese that my guy loves. Now I think, he would really deserve a jumping one, to continue being a happy horse. George was our example of how this saddle works and why we believe in the brand. Thanks
