For the longest, time I always had trouble with my dressage, especially on my 14 year old Lusitano, Voyeur. Being an eventer, I thought he might just prefer the jumping, but then I began to come to the conclusion that he was in pain. My riding continued to improve, but I still had trouble with all my downward transitions and it got to the point where I could not sit the trot without him hollowing his back. I did some research and found Schleese and then attended one of Jochens saddle fitting sessions for the first time in Santa Rosa. When I rode in one of his saddles that truly fit me and Voyeur for the first time, I almost melted! Suddenly I could do things like sit the trot without discomfort or difficulty. My transitions improved dramatically. I also noticed a change in his demeanor whenever we did dressage. An even more exciting change was when we received our lowest dressage score yet in competition: a 29.0 which is equivalent to a 71% in dressage. He has not placed out of the top 5 in any competitions since we started working with Schleese. I also have a 6 year old Hanovarian and 11 year old Selle Francias. My 6 year old, Charlie, had two wins out of the past three shows we have done and my 11 year old, Q, was able to move up a level this past season. I have had more success than ever this year thanks to Schleese Saddlery! Thanks!
