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! “

Testimonials

“I am extremely excited to be working with the high-tech saddle company Schleese.  Their innovative and ergonomic saddle design and saddle fit analyses not only fosters optimal performance, it helps protect against pain and long-term damage to both horse and rider.” “Biomechanics and injury prevention are fundamental building blocks of my methods; as a result I have done extensive research into saddle companies, their design technologies and core concepts.  The mere fact that Schleese saddles are offered in male or female pelvis versions caught my attention. I was immediately drawn to the scientific and innovative design of Schleese saddles.” “Under Schleese saddles, my horses feel comfortable and readily offer to use their whole bodies right from the beginning of each training session. The Schleese design does not touch any triggers and the wide channel gives clearance to the ligaments running along the horse’s back all while ensuring a steady and biomechanically superior bearing surface. This all helps my horses raise their toplines and really use their neck, withers and with their engaged and stable core, offer me their raised and swinging back. Without this, it is impossible to engage the hind-legs or obtain shoulder freedom.” “Schleese saddles allow me to sit forward over the horse’s center of gravity without sacrificing the option of a deep seat.  It supports correct position without locking me into one position.  I am able to fine-tune my position to influence my horses with greater freedom and more precise results.  In the Schleese saddle I can both affect and follow my horses to a high degree.” “Within the first week I witnessed dramatic results in topline improvement and my horses’ general way of going.   Students are experiencing a positive boost in their improvement which is creating great momentum for the winter months. I look forward to what is in store for our future with Schleese.”
