Approximately three times a year, Certified Master Saddler and Saddle Ergonomist Jochen Schleese comes to Northern California and Nevada for Saddlefit Clinics. Together with Christiane Noelting he travels as far as Chico, San Jose, Napa, Sacramento and Reno/ Gardnerville.

The Schleese System enables you to reach your true potential, whether competitive or recreational.
Jochen Schleese will work with each client to determine their personal requirements. The comprehensive Schleese System includes:

I would wish for every horse and rider to be comfortable while doing our sport. The feeling after the saddle fittings, of the horse being able to move freely underneath you is is truly a reminder that the saddle fittings are as important as buying the saddle and that horses do "suffer in silence".If we are going to ask them to perform, it is our duty to make sure they can physically execute the movements and not be restricted by an ill fitting saddle. I am always surprised at the improvement after very subtle adjustments. Many thanks for helping both my horse and me! Your saddle made my horse a different animal. He was so uncomfortable and with your saddle he became so rideable that we went on to get our Silver Medal.
I just wanted to give you a positive comment: I've had my saddle for several months now, and I feel like I have my horse back! He was so lame for so long, and now he is happy with his work, getting fit and 'beefy', and giving me hope that I can actually show him again. Thank you so much! I love what the saddle is doing for my horse.
This was a fantastic clinic. I have seen numerous saddle fitters at work over the years, but the Schleese evaluation is the most comprehensive I have ever witnessed. Jochen's lecture was incredibly educational - he has a phenomenal eye and a super understanding of the way a horse's body is built and how it moves. After he and Amanda Silver (Southeast SaddleFit) evaluated and fitted all the horses in the clinic, they all went so much better and looked so happy and comfortable! Thanks, Amanda and Jochen!
