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

"Thank you for all the research you do constantly to make sure the horses health and happiness is number 1"

I just wanted to thank Schleese Saddlery for sponsoring our jumper mare Volga Du Soleil. She always jumped the best in your Jump Saddle with the PSI panel with great scope and athleticism. The difference between that system and other saddles was proven countless times. Her back was always happy never sore to the touch. I can't recommend this system enough if you want a happy horse with improved technique and scope. Thank you for your support and all the research you do constantly to make sure the horses health and happiness is number 1.

"I will definitely be a Schleese client for life!"

He literally cantered around that ring with pure joy, I never wanted to get off because of how good he felt and how happy he was! It was an immediate change, he was willing to step into his leads, he lifted his back and engaged his hind end in the trot, and was willing to yield his jaw and neck in the walk. I will definitely be a Schleese client for life!

"Our horses are loving the saddles"

My husband had to have a custom saddle made for him and his horses (XC Merci) and I bought the Jete. Our horses are loving the saddles!

"Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge online. It has helped me so much in understanding both of my horses bodies."

Hi there, just thought I’d share a pic of my handsome man Flicka in his Devin saddle. I love this saddle so much. I don’t think Flick has ever had a correctly fitted saddle, and he is 16. In the year I’ve had him, I’ve discovered so much about him. An old knee injury seems to have affected his movement and caused issues in his sacroiliac area. He also has white hair that shows that his movement is not symmetrical. He has had the winter off here in Australia with lots of body work and ground exercises. This pic is of his first ride back into work. I couldn’t be happier. It (the saddle) put me in the right position and he felt so good under me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge online. It has helped me so much in understanding both of my horses bodies. And thank you for a well thought through saddle for both horse and rider.

"I can not stress enough how this saddle has changed my life."

I want to thank the staff for their professionalism at my saddle fitting.  I had such a great learning experience.  The information was presented in a clear manner and all of my questions answered.  I also am amazed at the quick follow up to make sure I was happy with my saddle.  The technology used to build and design these saddles is mind blowing.  My saddle fits my horse so well and I have never been this comfortable riding in my life.  I know my horse is so grateful every time I put the saddle on and off.  Horsemanship has been my life passion and I can not stress enough how this saddle has changed my life.  I would encourage anyone to have a fitting to access a saddle you own or to purchase a Schleese saddle for the comfort of yourself and especially for your horse. Thank you so much!

"Thanks to all who helped in getting this DREAM saddle made"

I am Honored and Proud to be Sponsored by Schleese Saddle Fit for Life! I have been waiting for years to get a brand new Schleese. I have had two used Schleese saddles and have ridden in several models, as my students have purchased them. I have the Pro Light Plus and I LOVE IT, as well as my young horse LOVES IT. In Kantisha CBF’s first CDS recognized show, second show total, she won the High Score of the day with a 74.483%. Is it the saddle, training, or is she born to win? All I know is this saddle really helps the horse to use her natural movement without any impediment. The saddle helps me to have a position that does not impede my horse, plus is so very easy to ride in. This saddle is one-of-a-kind, as it has Glamour options designed by me with a little bit of help from my Saddle Reps, Deb and Matt! I LOVE how it turned out and have had many lookers checking out the beauty of this saddle. Again, thanks to all who helped in getting this DREAM saddle made. My horse and I am so LUCKY to have such wonderful support.

"I’m so pleased with the saddle and can’t thank you and Jochen enough! "

I’m pleased to say my Obrigado is great! Milo is going better than ever and it has been even more amazing for my position. I no longer fight to keep my legs below me and my seat bones are always locked in position. No more adjusting my seat every few strides to feel my seat bones! I’m so pleased with the saddle and can’t thank you and Jochen enough!

"The availability of movement for the horse without interference is incredible"

Although I had never owned a Schleese, I have always recommended them to my clients based on the quality, commitment to horse and rider fit and the professionalism and knowledge of their fitters.  As soon as I saw the Schleese Western Saddle I knew I had to own one and once I tried it, I was in love.  The availability of movement for the horse without interference is incredible and having the peace of mind that the saddle fits my horse perfectly and will continue to do so because of its adjustability, gives me the ability to focus on my riding and communication.  I can’t say enough about the features and benefits of this saddle not to mention the incredible ongoing support provided by our saddle fitter, Heather Doig, the fact that an equine body worker stands behind this brand speaks volumes to it’s quality!

"Friends came up to me almost crying saying the work in the session,the balance and harmony was so beautiful!"

Here are some pictures of me riding at the Christine Stuckelberger Clinic Oct 26 -28, 2018. I gave Christine Jochen’s book as well as a hat. My horse Bigello was the darling of the clinic He went fantastically in his modified Schleese with the new PSI panels. I have noticed a huge difference since their installation and Big sure has as well. Friends came up to me almost crying saying the work in the session,the balance and harmony was so beautiful! Many thanks to your constant support!

"Congrats to Schleese Saddlery Service for 30 years (Jeeze, that's almost as old as I am!!) of wonderful service to horses and their riders. I'm proud to ride in Schleese, and can't wait to get my new Obrigado! You are constantly taking Horatio and I to the next level, and I'm so thankful that you're in my life. How weird is this?!? I'm pretty much expressing my love for a saddle maker/fitter(s?) in public.

Jochen, thinking of you - hope you are doing well - remember when I stopped you in the barn at Coto de Caza a couple of years ago, going on about how much of a fan I was of you? Probably not - but that's just because I stopped short of asking you to sign my saddle, I'm sure :) Connie and Mark Frantzke what can I say? You've believed in me from the moment we met, and your visits are highlights! You are wonderful people with an amazing way of looking at life. Thank you for your friendship - it means the world to me! My fellow dressage enthusiast, Frank, said it best in regards to the Obrigado, "I thought there was no way any other saddle could be more comfortable than my first Schleese, but then, incredibly, it was!" <-----my exact experience! Do you know what Obrigado means? (Not you, Schleese peeps, the public) It means Thank you, in Portuguese! Well, OBRIGADO, SCHLEESE! OBRIGADO! Congrats again - I'm taking this Saddlefit 4 Life and turning it into a Customer4Life." Check out Katie's thank you video! https://youtu.be/1G0mNoqhWT8
