    :

    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.

Testimonials

My wife Heidi recently had her FEI horse Depardieu fit for a saddle by Jochen. Both Heidi and I consider the day to have been a true inflection point in the way we think about saddle fit. We could not have been more impressed with change in Depardieu's way of going. We not only look forward to seeing Depardieu's progress in his Schleese saddle but look forward to experiencing and sharing this trans formative experience again and again as we have our other horses and clients horses fit as well.
