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.

For me as a coach and judge, we absolutely do not want to see all our years of hard work and dedication go down the drain because of ill-fitting saddles on our horses. Saddlefit 4 Life®’s amazing developments, have absolutely benefitted the riders but more importantly - for the horse's long term health with immediate and visible results. Seeing is believing! I saw a close friend of mine whose horse has been misdiagnosed for years as to why he was not happy in his work. This horse had his hocks injected; he had an MRI and several other medical procedures trying to find the answer as to why this TB gelding was so resistant even in the most basic work. This horse saw saddlers, chiropractor, massage therapist - the owner felt she did everything she could for this horse and nothing seemed to help. Even the veterinary clinic found and treated the symptoms but never found the cause for this horse's pain. In the diagnostic saddle fit evaluation, Jochen discovered several major fitting issues on this horse and immediately set to work like a surgeon, fitting the horse instantly with a new saddle and the results were beyond amazing. In all the years I have known this horse - I have never seen him produce a regular three beat canter under saddle until that very day. Once all the pressure points were relieved on this extremely sensitive horse, he moved with so much freedom and regularity and offered no resistance - as a judge and coach I just started applauding and crying at the same time!
