Saddlefit 4 Life® Launches New Website

Certified Master Saddler and Saddle Ergonomist Jochen Schleese is  pleased to announce the launch of the NEW Saddlefit 4 Life® website!  With major technological advances, our state-of-the-art features allow you access to all the educational information you will need, as well as to our improved registration forms. Easy navigation with brighter images and updated content is assured across all platforms including computers, laptops, tablets or smart phones. Social Media Platforms include:  Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram.

Make the S4L site your trusted resource for the latest in educational materials and insights, including contributions from many associated equine professionals – all of whom are working towards a mutual goal of protecting horses and riders from long term back-damage due to ill-fitting tack.   Our improved events listing and search capability will show you what courses are happening where and when within a 500km radius of your postal/zip code.

Our new shopping cart will make it easier to process payments directly and soon you can register and pay for courses online. The S4L curriculum and course registration has been updated and simplified.  The “What’s New” section pulls from the latest Blog, News and Schleese in the Media results – and Jochen’s weekly educational blog will be an ongoing feature! The internal search function will search within the site itself, allowing you to delve into information such as negative horse behaviour due to ill-fitting saddles and rider pain issues as well as our ever-popular revamped 9 Points of Saddle Fit. An expansive menu of educational articles written over the years and published in over 20 different magazines and online publications globally will soon be available for your educational reading pleasure.

The website has been a work in progress for almost four years and we are happy and proud to finally be able to offer the latest in website technology to our clients, associated equine professionals, and the riding public.

DSC_0050 Having spent years doing exercises to supposedly loosen my hips in an attempt to sit deeper in the saddle and prevent my toes from turning out while riding, I discovered when I ride in a ‘female’ saddle, I am immediately sitting deep in the saddle with my toes pointing forward – without even warming up. I wonder what unnecessary damage I’ve done to myself from years of putting torque on my joints from these exercises from a classical riding book. I wonder how many other women have unnecessarily hurt their body believing they struggle with ‘tight hips’.
