Fit is Everything - Infinitely Adjustable for Optimal Comfort & Performance!

Saddle design for the well-being of your horse!

Even a horse with a perfectly fitted saddle will never be fully protected from long term damage if the saddle is not suited to the anatomical build and gender of the rider.

80 points of consideration for horse and rider are evaluated before our saddlers begin creating a customized saddle to your unique requirements.


Caring from the inside out – the Schleese Adjustable AdapTree®

Your Schleese saddle is custom made to your horse’s measurements for optimal fit and performance and protection for your horse’s back. As your horse develops there will be changes over time in his 3-dimensional back shape and the saddle support area

  • Our fully adjustable gullet plate accommodates your horse’s growth and ongoing development at the shoulders and wither area
  • Our SaddleSizer ™ Tree Machine allows us to make necessary adjustments to accommodate your horse’s changing shoulder angle and width
  • The AdapTree® offers protection for your horse’s spine, ligaments, nerves and muscles

Discover the features of a “female saddle”

Ergonomically designed ‘saddles for women’ allow female riders to sit properly balanced and comfortably positioned. The benefits:

  • Flexes with your horse’s lateral movement to improve connection and communication
  • Accommodates asymmetry at the shoulder to maintain saddle straightness
  • Rear-facing, shock absorbing tree points allow shoulders to freely rotate upwards/ backwards, and prevent potential chipping of scapular cartilage
  • Unique panel design provides maximum weight bearing surface and pressure dispersal over the saddle support area
  • Shoulder relief panels free up shoulder for maximum movement
  • Wide channel clearance prevents damage to spinal processes and vertebrae promoting back freedom.

Testimonials

I just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying my new Eagle saddle. I got my saddle on a Tuesday and had a 2.5 hour trail ride scheduled for the next day. I was a little apprehensive about using the new saddle as I thought I would need to "break it in" first, especially with all the ups and downs in our mountain riding. Well, I was so eager to use it that I rode in it anyway and it was amazing. This is my fourth Schleese saddle (hunter/jumper, dressage and trail) and even though I've been very satisfied with each one, this is by far the best and most comfortable. My first saddle (the one I replaced) was a hunter/jumper and I was very surprised to find out from you that it was 14 years old. So much has changed during that time, both in saddles and in my horse. The adjustable tree in the Eagle is wonderful, especially since you were able to adjust it to my horse on the premises and will be able to make adjustments in the future, if needed. As you know, I have a skin condition that is aggravated by chafing and even though my last saddle was comfortable, I would often get chafed, especially on our longer rides. With the Eagle, I'm as comfortable after the ride as before and there has been absolutely no chafing. Jochen has truly extended my number of years to ride by developing this saddle. Thank you Amanda Silver of Southeast Saddle Fit for all your help getting the right fit for my horse. Thank you Schleese I absolutely love, love, love the new saddle!
