Fit is Everything - Infinitely Adjustable for Optimal Comfort & Performance!

COVID-19 – Our Commitment to you is our top priority.

With growing global concerns around COVID-19 (“coronavirus”), I wanted to provide you with an update on our response to date and our commitment to you moving forward. The health, safety and well-being of our employees and clients is Schleese’s top priority.

First and foremost, I want to assure our clients that we are taking all appropriate measures to ensure our staff are safe as well our vehicles, equipment, saddles and accessories have been kept clean. While the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the current public health risk associated with coronavirus as low, we continue to monitor for developments very closely.

We have implemented additional measures to ensure your safety as well as the safety of our team, including:

  • Introducing enhanced cleaning protocols of our vehicles and equipment. Coronaviruses are easily eliminated by routine surface cleaning and the cleaning products we use are industrial-grade and food-service approved.
  • Ensuring our staff are healthy when going on a clinic. There will also be an enhanced protocol for our staff when going from barn to barn to ensure the safety of all of our clients.
  • Increased cleaning protocols within our facility to ensure the utmost care is being taken in the manufacturing process

To protect yourself and others, we ask that anyone who is feeling unwell and would like to cancel their appointment ideally give us 48 hours-notice if at all possible. For the next 30 days we will be waiving any cancellation fees to the pre-paid evaluation and will keep the full value on your account to use at the next appointment in the event you decide to cancel.

Again, we continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed.

Thank you and happy riding.

I met Jochen Schleese in 2007 at Dressage at Devon, where I showed my Oldenburg Stallion "Diamunde" in the 5 y/o FEI Horse Competition and in the Breed Show. I immediately loved the idea of the saddle being adjustable to both horse and rider, but was otherwise not too fond of having to spend what seemed to be a small fortune for a new saddle (I had only owned my stallion for one year, and had bought him his 3rd saddle already). Jochen persisted and we met the day after my competition finished. After a wonderfully informative fitting and lecture it was time to ride my horse in this new saddle. No saddle pad, crowded, crazy warmup arena at Devon, and 10 minutes into the whole thing people were watching a 5 y/o stallion playing with his newfound back and shoulder freedom and a rider smiling from one ear to the other. So, only one regret: I should have bought the saddle before my FEI competition. And this was only the start of a very wonderful relationship with Jochen and the Schleese company. Together, we now have developed a new saddle called the "Elegancia" for the short-backed Iberian and modern Warmblood Sporthorse. Boy, wait until you try this one! I have yet to feel this much freedom in my horses' backs!!!  And to come back to the "small fortune" idea: Yes, I feel fortunate to ride in a Schleese saddle, my horses are happy and sound, and I have saved more money and time than I can tell you! So, look at the big picture: You are investing in your and your horses' health!
