Product Description

This DVD goes one step further from our popular “9 points of saddle fitting” as available for general viewing on YouTube. Dealing with common concerns to riders, owners and all equine professionals, this compilation of educational information enlightens equestrians of all levels as to possible symptomatic causes from poor saddle fit resulting in • Undiagnosed lameness • Muscle definition and atrophy • Sore backs • Bad ‘behaviour’ among others. Click to Watch.

Certified Master Saddler and Equine Ergonomist Jochen Schleese presents his points in a clear and concise manner, using his training as a former event rider as the basis for his epiphany as to the possible causes of issues with his competitive horse. The establishment of his Saddlefit 4 Life® global network of equine professionals all working together for the protection of the horse and his involvement in the creation of HIPPOH Foundation (Horse Industry Professionals Protecting our Horses) all underline his passion and commitment to making a difference to both horse and rider.

Be sure to watch the credits at the end for insight into the character of the man behind the philosophy which is making huge inroads in the equine industry – to the point that saddle fitting is now being taught by Jochen at the German National Riding School in Warendorf and is part of the curriculum of the FN in Germany.

Most riders certainly want to do what’s best for their horses, but sometimes they just don’t know what they just don’t know.

Testimonials

A couple of years ago, a friend offered to let me ride her mare. She rides in a Schleese saddle. From the moment I sat in her beautiful saddle, I knew that I had to have one for myself. A Schleese saddle then became my dream saddle. I finally found THE ONE after a year and a half. I dabble in dressage as a hobby but do not currently compete. I also participate in mounted archery with my horse Reagan. Yes, you read that right, I shoot bows and arrows off of the back of a horse. A lot like the Native Americans used to do on the American Plains - except that I ride in a Schleese Wave. I love my saddle so much as does my horse. From the first ride wearing it, he moved out so freely. It was almost like riding a completely different horse. His trot became less choppy and restrictive. He is also more willing to pick up the canter for me without tossing his head. I feel that he is able to extend his shoulder without the saddle tree jamming into his shoulder blade. This is something I never realized was a common issue with other saddle trees on the market today. Because of our Schleese saddle, when we head down the lane to shoot, I can feel nearly every muscle of his back and am able to connect with my horse. We are able to move together as a unit. It takes an enormous amount of trust for me to drop the reins entirely and trust my horse to run steady while I shoot. In turn, he trusts me to use equipment that is comfortable to him in order to allow him to do his job effectively. I feel that it helps him to enjoy his work and build a positive relationship between not only he and I but also between himself and his “work.” I adore the quality craftsmanship of my Schleese. I know that it is well made and will last us for many years to come. I have five saddles in my tack room and my Wave is now the ONLY saddle that I use. I can ride for hours in my Schleese and don’t get sore. Thank you so much for making a top of the line product that is multi-faceted to fit my varied riding styles. Reagan appreciates your fabulous products too as we have the 8” anatomical girth and stirrup leathers also. I am now a hopeless Schleese addict!
