Dr. Solange Mikail, DVM
Dr. Solange Mikail was in the market for a dressage saddle and found the Schleese videos on YouTube. As a veterinarian, she appreciated the information available on the videos and decided to buy a Schleese saddle because he knew a lot about saddle fitting and was concerned with the back health of the horse. As she made plans to attend the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010, she contacted head office and was told that Schleese would have a booth onsite. This gave her the opportunity to look at the saddles and try them out – and actually speak with Jochen. She was accompanied by Davi Carrano – her trainer (and also one of our associated equine professionals) – who was also impressed with what he saw. Well as they say – the rest is history. She was instrumental in organizing Jochen’s first trip to Brazil in September 2011 to speak in front of the veterinary congress, and has been working with S4L ever since. Solange opened her facility to Saddlefit 4 Life® and is now the location for S4L South American headquarters just outside of Sao Paulo Brazil.
