The equestrian community has been sending letters to Sabine Schleese ( nominating recipients and explaining why the nominee was deserving of one of these saddles. The event ended on July 31, 2017.

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 :)
