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®

Schleese Patented 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 withers 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
  • The 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.

Hey Jochen, In any language I can think of, thank you for my new saddle. I rode Chablis in it today on the trail for about 2 hours and it was not only incredibly comfortable but my feet didn't fall asleep - something that has been a problem in pretty much every saddle I've ever been in (even sadly my hunt saddles sometimes) Just amazing - what I've been looking for, for well over 10 years! Do you remember my first Schleese I had for the big chestnut? It kept making my entire right leg fall asleep after only 5 minutes. You guys were amazing - I sent it back to your workshop a number of times- you shaved the internal bits, added a gel pad, did other crazy things to it - and finally it worked and was comfortable This was even better than all that crazy amazing custom work - day 1. Just awesome! And just as important, Chablis seems awfully happy in it too - big swinging walk (ok HUGE walk LOL) I'm so glad you got to come to my little neck of the sagebrush - it's always fun to see you and you make my life and my ponies lives just that much better with what you do and how you do it. Come back soon :)
