Schleese Video “Beyond the 9 Points of Saddle Fitting
Named as Finalist in the NY Equus Film Festival

The Equus Film Festival is the first film festival oriented around equestrian themed content from all over the world. Storytellers show the rich history and diverse tapestry of horses in human culture through equestrian content. There are feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, training videos (like ours!) art, and literary submissions. The Film Festival was created to highlight and award the diverse and creative efforts of all who pay artistic homage to the horse. In 2016, the festival hosted over 150 films at the Village East Cinema in NYC, gathered from 17 countries around the world.

Beyond the 9 Points of Saddle Fit will be showing on Friday November 17 at 4:15 pm at the pop-up gallery. This compilation of educational information enlightens equestrians and equine professionals at all levels to possible causes for symptomatic issues resulting from poor saddle fit, including lameness, muscle atrophy, sore backs and ‘bad behavior’.

The festival takes place from November 17-19, 2017 at the Helen Mills Theatre in NYC, 135 W 26th Street. (212-243-6200)

Introducing Another Sponsor of “Dover’s World Live”- Schleese Saddlery! I am so pleased to announce another of my 5 Presenting Sponsors for my upcoming Radio Show, “Dover’s World Live”, which premiers one week from today, Tuesday, October 19th at 6:00 pm on AM 1230 WBZT. Schleese Saddlery is a company which I have known, along with its founder, Jochen Schleese, for many years. I have to tell you that I have been involved with and actually designed saddles for a number of other manufacturers over the decades and am still great friends with some of the owners. That being said, I have to hand it to Jochen, who I joke with since he very much directs his advertising toward the “female gender”, because with great care and many fittings, we came up with a saddle which I can honestly say is the most comfortable and closest fitting to the horse that I have ever ridden in. The fit on the horse is reminiscent of the Schultheis Saddle which I rode in 30 years ago but the craftsmanship includes state of the art design and materials which provide the rider (male or female) with extraordinary comfort! It’s pretty much like sitting in your favourite chair at home, while affording you the perfect seat and leg position you need on the horse. So, in the end it’s sort of the reverse of that old “Irish Spring Deodorant” commercial with the lady who says, ”Made for the man……but I like it too!” Schleese may be directing its energy toward the female clientele, but I guarantee all you guys out there will love riding in my saddle.
