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:

ENGLISH

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.

"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
