A Saddle Just For Women

Female anatomy can impact saddle fit. Unfortunately, many women are riding in saddles that have been made for men, which can cause pain and discomfort for both the rider and the horse. Schleese is proud to be recognized as an industry leader in the design of saddles for women in the following categories:

WESTERN

JUMPING

PONY

THE DESIGN OF OUR FEMALE SADDLES INCLUDES:

FEATURES

Patented AdapTree®

As your horse develops, his 3-dimensional back support and saddle area will change. Our saddle’s infinitely adjustable AdapTree® can be easily fitted on-site to accommodate your horse’s growth and ongoing development.

FEATURES

Narrow Twist

A narrower Twist helps to accommodate hip articulation, allowing the upper inner thigh to be closer to the horse which in turn helps female riders to be more comfortably positioned to promote the giving of their ‘aids’ to their horse.

FEATURES

Seat Adjustments

Our Female Saddles include a wider and softer seat to provide support and comfort for wider female seat bones, Patented Crotch Comfort™ to relieve pressure or rubbing of soft tissue at the pubic symphysis.

I’ve ridden in Schleese saddles for over a decade. Whether I am eventing at the upper levels or competing at Grand Prix, my Schleese saddles have been instrumental in my success. I achieved my USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals while riding in a Schleese.

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.
