Rider Testimonial:
“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!”
-Julianne Ozolins – Australia

July finds Jochen spending a couple of days on holiday in Florida with daughter Danielle and boyfriend Gabe (doing some IT integration research for Schleese) and then leaving on his Florida sales trip from July 21-29.

Testimonials

I just wanted to share with you my satisfaction with your product. In June of 2010, I had a heart attack. As I lay in the hospital, I reflected on my life. I decided that I wanted to fulfill my bucket list. I wanted to go camping with my horses and ride the trails. I also wanted the best, most comfortable saddle for my horse and myself. I had tried a number of different saddles Stubben, Barclay) over the years, but nothing fit my mutton withered, table backed, horse. He was cinchy and never seemed to be content. I tried a number of saddle fitters and saddles, and I thought I had done the best for my horse, but I had an underlying feeling that the saddle did not fit him. While I was recovering from my heart attack at home, I searched the internet and came upon your site. I found the Schleese videos very informative. I reviewed the videos for a number of days and continued to search the web. The Schleese saddle made sense (the wide channel, cut back bars) and I loved the idea that the saddle could be adjusted with help from a trained saddle fitter. I contacted your company and weeks after my heart attack, a saddle fitter came to my farm. She was very considerate and in July of 2010, I bought a second hand Schleese Liberty saddle. In September of 2011, my husband and I, along with a group of older riders, went camping with our horses for a week in Algonquin Park. I am happy to report that I my horse and I were very comfortable during our longest ride (6 hours) in the Schleese Liberty dressage saddle.
