Schleese in the media: CHA Podcast: Saddle Fit with Jochen Schleese.
postedJuly 21st, 2020
Hi Jochen, I just want to pass along to you the email that I received from Mary Thacker, my student who came to Coopersburg w/ me and Gid back in the summer, and whom you fit for a brown jumping saddle. She had the 19 yr. old TB you kept exclaiming over….Their saddle just arrived Thanksgiving weekend, and she reported today: Today's ride was even better than yesterday! It only took a few minutes to get him soft, and after a good canter he was so flexible, soft and his back was up. It was amazing. I feel so balanced in this saddle and safer. Not that I felt totally unsafe before, but I think I rode a little more guarded and wasn't realizing it. I've been galloping him around the outdoor and it is so neat in this saddle, I can't explain it. You'll have to ride in it, for sure. Maybe take Derby to the outdoor and get a good forward canter going. He just feels so different, I think because his back isn't hollowed. We are both very, very happy :)
