A Saddle Just For Women

Female anatomy can impact saddle fit. Unfortunately, many women are riding in saddles that have been made for men, which can cause pain and discomfort for both the rider and the horse. Schleese is proud to be recognized as an industry leader in the design of saddles for women in the following categories:

ENGLISH

WESTERN

JUMPING

PONY

THE DESIGN OF OUR FEMALE SADDLES INCLUDES:

FEATURES

Patented AdapTree®

As your horse develops, his 3-dimensional back support and saddle area will change. Our saddle’s infinitely adjustable AdapTree® can be easily fitted on-site to accommodate your horse’s growth and ongoing development.

FEATURES

Narrow Twist

A narrower Twist helps to accommodate hip articulation, allowing the upper inner thigh to be closer to the horse which in turn helps female riders to be more comfortably positioned to promote the giving of their ‘aids’ to their horse.

FEATURES

Seat Adjustments

Our Female Saddles include a wider and softer seat to provide support and comfort for wider female seat bones, Patented Crotch Comfort™ to relieve pressure or rubbing of soft tissue at the pubic symphysis.

Testimonials

I have just had my first ride in my new Eagle saddle. I will preface this by saying I was skeptical about my spending this kind of money for a saddle. As I explained, I’m from the old school, and had always gotten by without much special attention to the saddle before – I guess I was just lucky that my previous horses did not have the problems that are apparent today. I’ve ridden off and on since I was 7, and am now 57. I took time off when having a family, but always found some way to at least ride “other people’s horses. I was hoping lots of work on the roads and in the fields would be enough to have him do H/J and equitation at least, but the kissing spine diagnosis most likely suggests that won’t be happening. But this morning, I just had my first ride in my new saddle, on the scenic back roads here in upstate New York. Bagavond was very happy. I always knew him to be a pretty smart fellow, who needs a job. He loves getting out. And I have never had a more comfortable ride. I feel now I can work with him safely, without exacerbating his problems. So today was the first day we had it all together – and my first day back to my life’s passion. I also appreciate the video on your website of the 93 year old woman. You see, my sister had a friend, Frances, up in Cazenovia, NY – and she rode until she passed away at 95. That is who I wish to be. There is nothing like having a horse in your life.
