The Equine Sciences Academy

 

Both Sabine and Jochen Schleese are on the Advisory Board of the Academy. As Advisory Panel members we review, critique and contribute materials to ESA courses in our areas of expertise. We share the deep commitment to research and education in continually seeking knowledge that will allow better care and understanding in providing for our domesticated equines.

The ESA looks to the life way of the wild horse as the model for equine health and soundness because it believes that equines (or any creatures for that matter!( that are kept in a manner consistent with their nature will fare far better in a domestic environment than those that are kept in ways alien to their physiology.

The programs offered are designed to give a thorough fundamental understanding of all key aspects of horse husbandry, as well as the tools to apply to equine care and management.

The ESA offers both an Equine Sciences Degree as well as the most comprehensive Certification in Natural Hoof Care program offered anywhere.

The Academy is founded on the belief that the practice of focusing on one aspect of a horse – the body, the environment, habits, etc. – without due consideration of other possible mitigating factors is a process which is inherently flawed. The science behind a thriving horse is complex, but the principles are simple. The closer he gets to a natural equine environment and lifestyle the healthier he will be in mind, body and spirit. The Academy is dedicated to both research and education to allow this to happen.

Testimonials

As quoted in the Certified Horsemanship Association February Monthly Newsletter "I recently attended a nine day intensive saddle fitting course conducted by Jochen Schleese. Jochen and his wife, Sabine, have attended two of CHA's International conferences.  I was intrigued by his demos on how saddles are made differently for men and women. This year in Amarillo, he went into more detail about fitting saddles properly to horses to prevent serious injury.  He is passionate about helping horses and by offering this course to professionals in the horse industry, we can do our part in having healthy horses and educated riders. This 3-day course event covered how saddles [may] cause injury and how little has been done in the last 100 years to prevent these injuries.  By educating professionals who deal with horses on a daily basis on how to properly evaluate a saddle fit can go a long way in making horses healthy.  by teaching an 80 Point Evaluation, taking into account, the shoulder angles, wither shape, saddle support area and making sure critical pressure points are not impinged on by the saddle is just a small segment of this course.  The Schleese's passion for helping horses is much the same as CHA's mission statement for riding instructors.  It is for the good of the horse.  Taking these courses reminded me of my certification week to become a CHA instructor.  A huge highlight of my life with horses."  Check our Saddlefit4life.com and the book "Suffering in Silence."
