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 share with you my satisfaction with your product. In June of 2010, I had a heart attack. As I lay in the hospital, I reflected on my life. I decided that I wanted to fulfill my bucket list. I wanted to go camping with my horses and ride the trails. I also wanted the best, most comfortable saddle for my horse and myself. I had tried a number of different saddles Stubben, Barclay) over the years, but nothing fit my mutton withered, table backed, horse. He was cinchy and never seemed to be content. I tried a number of saddle fitters and saddles, and I thought I had done the best for my horse, but I had an underlying feeling that the saddle did not fit him. While I was recovering from my heart attack at home, I searched the internet and came upon your site. I found the Schleese videos very informative. I reviewed the videos for a number of days and continued to search the web. The Schleese saddle made sense (the wide channel, cut back bars) and I loved the idea that the saddle could be adjusted with help from a trained saddle fitter. I contacted your company and weeks after my heart attack, a saddle fitter came to my farm. She was very considerate and in July of 2010, I bought a second hand Schleese Liberty saddle. In September of 2011, my husband and I, along with a group of older riders, went camping with our horses for a week in Algonquin Park. I am happy to report that I my horse and I were very comfortable during our longest ride (6 hours) in the Schleese Liberty dressage saddle.
