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

Wow, wow, wow, wow! I am so grateful and amazed at your generosity. It’s taken me a long time to write because I didn’t think I could possibly find the words to express my thanks adequately. I still don’t have the words but am finally writing anyway! My new saddle is amazing!! When you decided we needed a special new saddle, I thought it was really for my horse. After all, I hadn’t had any problems with saddle fit for myself when the saddle fit the horse and my last saddle was comfortable for me. I knew the new saddle would fit Juilliard beautifully, but I have been shocked at how big a difference it has made for me too! My seat and legs are always exactly where they need to be, without me even trying. And this isn’t just when the horse is still. It’s at all gaits, lateral work, etc.! I feel like I’m sitting IN my horse, not on top of him. My legs are long without me having to stretch them down. I have always envied how male dressage riders have such effortless position, and now I sit just as effectively as they do! This saddle puts my weight over precisely the right spot on my horse’s back. In every saddle prior to this, I’ve always felt behind the motion with Juilliard’s medium and extended trots. Now for the first time I am in balance with the motion for these big trots. It is wonderful to no longer be fighting my saddle, and to instead have one that makes my job more easy and comfortable! The biggest change I have noticed with Juilliard is the adjustability of the canter. With previous saddles, in even just a lengthened canter, it always felt like the rear of the saddle was blocking the movement of his back, and he had to brace against it hitting him. Often I had to go into a half seat or he would buck instead of making his stride longer. Now his back has room to move with the new saddle, and he easily and willingly elongates and makes big round jumpy strides (like he hasn’t done since he was young and saddle length wasn’t an issue). This is such an amazing saddle for both of us, and I can’t thank you enough for making it happen! Many, many thanks!!
