Schleese and Saddlefit 4 Life Continue to Lead the Equestrian Industry with Equine Professional Education Impact

Jochen Schleese will be a featured educational presenter at this year’s Australian edition of Equitana 2018, held in Melbourne Nov, 15 – 18, 2018. Immediately after the trade show, Saddlefit 4 Life will be hosting its first Equine Ergonomist and Schleese Western saddle training session ‘down under’, working together Danielle Skerman (editor of Baroque Horse) and Dr. Lesley Hawson, PhD, Veterinary Surgeon. From Australia, Jochen will fly to South Africa for his annual Saddlefit 4 Life training courses in Capetown and Durban, and from there he goes to the UK where Schleese is a sponsor for the Saddle Research Trust Conference 2018.  In addition, Jochen Schleese has been nominated for the Welfare and Performance Person list of Practitioners for consideration of a reward of recognition.  Voting will be announced via the SRT newsletters, Facebook and Twitter in July so please like and follow SRT or sign up for their mail list to be kept informed. srt2018.com is the conference website which will announce all the news on the Welfare and Performance awards.

One of the guest speakers at the SRT will be Caroline Hegarty of the California based organization Equitopia, which has collaborated closely with both Saddlefit 4 Life and more recently the Master Saddle Fitters International (MSFI) organization, which also works with Saddlefit 4 Life to train its members in the UK on a regular basis. Equitopia took over the HIPPOH Foundation (Horse Industry Professionals Protecting Our Horses) which was originally founded as a not-for-profit by Jochen Schleese, Dr. Joanna Robson, DVM, and trainer Karen Loshbaugh.

All of these ventures and activities underline how passionate and instrumental Jochen Schleese has been and is about spreading the word, educating the riding public, and making a difference to the comfort, protection, and performance of our equine friends.

I wanted to drop you a note and let you know that destiny will have it that all roads in my life seem to lead to Schleese! I am now trimming for Margaret Boyce and her students in NY and I did know how close she was with the Schleese team. When we discover this, I of coarse was jumping out of my skin for the opportunity to see Jochen at a fitting nearby and drop in to say Hi. I have not forgotten all of you and the opportunity that was before us last year, I think that the future will hold something for us I will hope that destiny will continue to bring me right where I belong despite my over thinking it all. As my kids are getting older, I see that there is much potential for growth and you guys are always on my mind! I had the opportunity to ride Margaret's horse in a lesson and I wrote a story about it I thought you might enjoy. I like to write about experiences that seem to be "Big" in my life and I truly savor the emotion and memories by writing. I thought I would share with you my little story about Big, especially since he was in a gorgeous HK that I so enjoyed riding in...and the dynamic of balanced hoof care combined with good training and saddle fitting was thoroughly enjoyed by me on this day! Hope you are well, I can still hear your voice on the other line and replay all of our chats in my mind, and I wanted to thank you for your support and understanding during that time of turmoil for me. You never know what the future holds. I’ll be probably popping up on Jochen here and there and around in NJ PA and NY if ever he just needs a spare set of hands. I so enjoy the learning from him and all working with all the pretty horses! Schleese is a part of the explosions of learning that I speak of in this story! Best regards to you and all of the Schleese team! (Especially Julia who I have met and adore!)
