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, colour 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!

Hi Sabine, OK, I submitted the following review on Amazon for Jochens book. It is being processedby Amazon, so will appear soon, I suspect. I gave it a 5 star rating: I have been an endurance rider since the mid 1980's. Asking a horse to go 50, 75 or 100 miles in a day is asking a lot--of both horse and rider. It takes hundreds and hundreds of miles of preparation to get you both in shape to successfully compete in this sport. A primary factor in this equation is a proper saddle fit for both you and your horse. I have struggled with how to accomplish this for 30 years, and it has never been explained so clearly as in this book. Jochen Schleese has put all the pieces of the puzzle together in this well written and well-illustrated book. You will learn that ALL saddles out there (with the exception of a side-seat saddle and a Schleese saddle) are made to fit a man's pelvis. There is no way a woman can ever be comfortable or truly in balance in a saddle built for a man's pelvis. The shape of a woman's pelvis and her center of gravity is very different from a man's. You will also learn all the features of a saddle that can hurt a horse if the saddle is not built or adjusted correctly, and that many behavioral issues a horse exhibits are often a result of poor saddle fit. There are also many chronic soft-tissue injuries that horses and riders can completely avoid by a saddle that fits both horse and rider properly. In this book, Jochen Schleese explains in an easy to understand manner, all the steps necessary for determining whether or not a saddle fits you and your horse properly--both when the horse is standing still and when the horse is in motion and if it continues to fit over time as the horse changes shape from conditioning (or lack thereof). I highly recommend this book. It will arm you with information that can save both you and your horse from unnecessary pain and make riding a much more enjoyable experience for both of you. Read this book, and you will gain the knowledge that Jochen Schleese has so generously shared. If you apply this knowledge, it will definitely help you and your horse ride pain free for a lifetime. I wanted also to let you and Jochen know that my saddle arrived yesterday. It is absolutely beautiful. I think the stirrup leather solution is brilliant. Hopefully it will all work for both Tahoe and me. It’s still pouring rain outside, and Tahoe is soaking wet and muddy from rolling in the mud. We are forecast for some dry weather tomorrow so I might be able to get him cleaned up enough to try out the saddle and go for a little hack on the unpaved road that I live on (safe footing even with all this rain). Ill keep you posted. Best regards,
