In collaboration with the renowned International Grand Prix rider and FEI 5* judge Anne Gribbons, we have created another exquisite dressage saddle as part of our industry-changing Bi-NateLine®. The Let’s Dance by Anne Gribbons combines stunning craftsmanship with extreme comfort and performance for both horse and rider.

The Let’s Dance Dressage saddle by Anne Gribbons features our deepest, closest contact seat yet and the industry’s first innovative NW-Twist. This provides the rider with an extremely narrow twist for ultimate contact with the horse all while simultaneously providing the horse with a wide twist to ensure maximum weight distribution and freedom of movement. Our innovative, shock-absorbing tree points provide the best shoulder freedom in the industry and our adjustable LightWeight-3D-AdapTree® can be adjusted on an ongoing basis to your horse and to any future horse(s). As part of the Bi-NateLine®, the Let’s Dance by Anne Gribbons comes standard with our revolutionary PSI panel system to maximize the saddle’s weight-bearing surface area throughout the length of the panel with the lowest pressure per square inch of any English saddle.

The “Let’s Dance” was created for the love of the horse by Anne and Jochen. Try one today!

Definition: NW-Twist

Many riders love the feeling of a narrow twist. The twist is the part of the saddle you feel between your upper inner thigh. Most trees with a narrow twist minimize the weight-bearing surface for the horse’s back,  especially between T10 and T13. Excessive pressure in this area can lead to hypertrophy, hypertension and painful reaction to palpation. The horse is restricted in using its back correctly. This scientific study has been published by the University of Zurich in the journal entry “ The importance of the twist in the context of proper saddle fit”. The study aimed at investigating the correlation between back pain and saddles with and without a narrow twist. Comparisons, especially in the craniomedial area, showed that saddles with narrow twists exhibited higher pressure readings and resulted in more incidences of hypertrophy in the Spinalis Thoracis muscle.

So how do we keep a nice narrow twist for the rider, but an appropriately wide twist for a better weight-bearing surface for the horse’s back to avoid pain? Schleese, the leader in innovative saddle solutions bisected the tree at the twist to develop the revolutionary NW-Twist. What is an NW-Twist? It is a tree with an extremely narrow twist for the rider and a wide twist for the horse. This gives the rider a comfortable seat with extremely close contact with the horse while providing the horse with optimal weight distribution and maximum freedom of movement to engage its back pain-free.

Testimonials

Ten years ago I purchased a lovely three yr. old Friesian cross to train for dressage, not realizing the size he would attain for my small frame.  He quickly outgrew my extra wide saddle and my other hoop tree saddle was so very painful for my hips that I actually was diagnosed with torn labral cartilage and subsequent further OA degeneration of both hip joints.  I then began to ride in my other trail saddle with panels that "sort of" fit the broad back/mutton withers but completely destroyed attempts at a effective dressage position and continued to be very painful for me. Having spent a summer with a driving instructor and realizing that was not for me, my only choice seemed to be selling my now beautifully trained and well loved horse and finding a "skinny little one" I could perhaps ride after the recommended bilateral hip replacement surgeries. By now you can probably see where this note is going; yes, I signed up for a Schleese evaluation last summer, rode in a loaner until my custom was made and now, after several weeks in my new Schleese, even the severe and chronic tendinitis has mostly healed and finally at age 74, I'm working with a Centered Riding instructor, attending clinics and riding better than I ever have on Mr. Propane Tank. So, thank you for the extensive time and effort you have taken to develop saddles that enable us little older women to continue to enjoy what we have devoted so many years to attaining even with our imperfect joints, and in my case, to avoid drastic surgeries.
