January 14th, 2015

Schleese Saddlery and Saddlefit 4 Life are proud to be new contributors to the blog feature of Horse Canada’s website. The contributions to the weekly blog will include anecdotal experiences of working with clients all over North America at all levels and dealing with all sorts of saddle fit and behavioral issues resulting from poor saddle fit. Perhaps the reader will recognize one or the other challenge they are facing in their own riding lives and learn about a new way of looking at things.

Personal stories, onsite experiences, and meeting some key personalities and experts in the industry will keep the blog interesting, varied, and always changing its focus week to week. Follow Jochen Schleese all over the world as he travels to various locations on his quest to ‘protect as many horses and riders worldwide from long term back damage’. Meet some of our wonderful clients and our independent saddle fitters who have all been trained as either equine or saddle ergonomists to properly assess, analyse, and fit saddles to both horses and riders.  The stories will make you laugh, maybe cry, but always think.

With close to half a million visitors, is already the horse industries go-to website and the major re-launch January 2015 is sure to generate a huge buzz. “I’m excited to reveal the next generation of the website,” said Jennifer Anstey, the publisher of Horse Publications Group. “The re-launch will include select recent articles from Horse Sport, Horse Canada, Canadian Thoroughbred and the Horse Health Annual to give readers online access to quality content they can trust. Plus, the site will also feature a forum, stable directory, classifieds, and new blogs – truly your Canadian horse source!”

“Dear Jochen:  Several years ago I read a review of your book, ordered it immediately, read it several times over & realized that here was someone that was on the same wavelength as myself. This was reemphasized over the last several days. It was a real pleasure to meet you in person, learn from you & feel inspired to continue to keep trying to improve the lot of the horse.” Dr Sue Dyson Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Specialist in Equine Orthopaedics Associate European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging Head of Clinical Orthopaedics Centre for Equine Studies Animal Health Trust Photo: Jochen with Dr. Sue Dyson at his recent clinic as guest of Caroline Lindsay of “Learn Saddle Fitting Resource: CPD MSFConnection (Perfect Movement Solutions)” in the U.K.
