    :

    I bought by Merci XC several years ago at Rolex in Lexington, KY. I am so happy with my purchase as is my horse Morocco. He is a Clyde/Hackney cross, has huge shoulders, tall withers, and is not an easy horse to fit. The Merci XC gave him the freedom he needed in the shoulder and the channel width he needed for his massive spine. For me. the narrow twist helped a long-standing hip issue and with the extra-extended stirrup bars, it helps me to find the balance I had been looking for over fences. Thank you Schleese for making a wonderful saddle.

    I bought my Merci 3 years ago at the Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio. Jochen was there and talked about the importance of fitting the female anatomy. I had been riding a western saddle but, as I have gotten older, my hips were complaining as the western saddle was so wide. I had to take 2 Aleve before I rode. After 2 hours, my hips were very sore. Then I bought my Merci. Now when I ride, I do not take any Aleve . I ride 2 hours everyday and up to 4 hours at different parks that I ride at. I clocked 300 trail riding hours on my Arabians last year. I will be 74 on April 22. The narrow twist of the Merci is perfect for older riders. It is easier to go up and down hills as this saddle keeps you right in place. The joy of riding has been returned to me. Happy trail to all of you that use this saddle for this purpose.

All good.  Murielle we can't thank you enough for literally saving our horse Indy.  We had no idea how miserably sore he was until you caught it over the summer and then we saw it at the fitting.  And the bonus was the tremendous difference Schleese also made in the second horse, which was totally unexpected.  Fabio's back now comes up over the jumps like it never did before...even surprising Lisette on her ride at Twin Rivers Horse Trials.  FYI, Monique broke the 30s in dressage for the first time taking a 24.5 at Twin Rivers thanks to the freedom and comfort he now feels in his back.  All are amazed, and truly appreciative.  Thanks for finding it in the work we did with you this summer, and for educating us about the difference in Schleese. Please let Jochen how much we appreciate his technology, his professionalism, and his impact on the comfort of both of our horses!  Listening to him and seeing the IMMEDIATE difference in Indy was fantastic.  We are now huge Schleese fans, and telling all about our experience. :-) Best regards, Kristina Boudreaux
