Schleese and Saddlefit 4 Life Continue to Lead the Equestrian Industry with Equine Professional Education Impact

Jochen Schleese will be a featured educational presenter at this year’s Australian edition of Equitana 2018, held in Melbourne Nov, 15 – 18, 2018. Immediately after the trade show, Saddlefit 4 Life will be hosting its first Equine Ergonomist and Schleese Western saddle training session ‘down under’, working together Danielle Skerman (editor of Baroque Horse) and Dr. Lesley Hawson, PhD, Veterinary Surgeon. From Australia, Jochen will fly to South Africa for his annual Saddlefit 4 Life training courses in Capetown and Durban, and from there he goes to the UK where Schleese is a sponsor for the Saddle Research Trust Conference 2018.  In addition, Jochen Schleese has been nominated for the Welfare and Performance Person list of Practitioners for consideration of a reward of recognition.  Voting will be announced via the SRT newsletters, Facebook and Twitter in July so please like and follow SRT or sign up for their mail list to be kept informed. srt2018.com is the conference website which will announce all the news on the Welfare and Performance awards.

One of the guest speakers at the SRT will be Caroline Hegarty of the California based organization Equitopia, which has collaborated closely with both Saddlefit 4 Life and more recently the Master Saddle Fitters International (MSFI) organization, which also works with Saddlefit 4 Life to train its members in the UK on a regular basis. Equitopia took over the HIPPOH Foundation (Horse Industry Professionals Protecting Our Horses) which was originally founded as a not-for-profit by Jochen Schleese, Dr. Joanna Robson, DVM, and trainer Karen Loshbaugh.

All of these ventures and activities underline how passionate and instrumental Jochen Schleese has been and is about spreading the word, educating the riding public, and making a difference to the comfort, protection, and performance of our equine friends.

Testimonials

Jochen saved my horse - even the vet school couldn’t provide an explanation of his symptoms. Understanding how the horse dictates saddle fit added a whole new dimension to my practice and helped countless clients and their horses. Passion for true horsemanship brings us all together. Thank you to Jochen Schleese.  Jochen saved my horse’s career, and in doing so, shaped mine.  Even the vet school couldn’t provide an explanation of his symptoms. Understanding how the horse dictates saddle fit added a whole new dimension to my practice and helped countless clients and their horses.   The saddle fitting material in my book “Recognizing the Horse in Pain and What You Can Do About It” is largely due to your years of experience and passion for teaching. Passion for true horsemanship brings us all together.” My post-graduation experience of seeing numerous records filled with refills for steroids and antibiotics or frequent, needless joint injections soon left me desperately searching for a better way to practice. The ensuing experience (meeting with Certified Master Saddler Jochen Schleese) changed my life, and subsequently changed the lives of the horses I’ve been able to work with. When I met Jochen Schleese, the founder of Saddlefit 4 Life® and listened to his in-depth explanation of how saddle fit affects the horse, I had a revelation. Here was someone who could put all the pieces together for me with compassionate understanding for the horse. I will admit, when I understood how much pain I had caused my horse, and how he had continued to try to do his job for me in the face of that pain, I cried uncontrollably. Now I was armed with something different in making the decision – the knowledge of my horse’s anatomy, how it dictated proper saddle fit...and an option to correct his problems and continue to enjoy riding my horse knowing he is free of pain.”   Recognizing the Horse in Pain and What You Can Do About it - Video Icon for Website How to Use Thermography
