Schleese is extremely proud to be featured on the very popular award-winning PBS educational television series called “Information Matrix” hosted by Laurence Fishburne. This series highlights the evolution of education, medicine, science, technology, and industry through inspiring business stories. Each episode breaks down occurrences from today’s society, culture, and business through a short-form documentary film.
Schleese was asked to be featured on the show due to our positive contribution to the equestrian industry with our hand-crafted, infinitely adjustable top quality saddles which help horse and rider maximize their performances while protecting them from long-term back damage resulting from poorly fitting saddles. With our focus on saddles for women in all disciplines and our focus on education we provide our clients the opportunity to make informed decisions about their options, while helping them to understand proper saddle design and fit.
The airings will occur in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Miami and New York during peak (7:00 -11:45 am) and prime (6:00 – 11:45 pm) time on networks including CNN, CNN Headline News, MSNBC, Fox News, Fox Business Network, The Life Channel (TLC), Travel, and Discovery between June 15 – June 30, 2020.
Remember to stay home, stay safe, and use our hashtag #LetsRideItOutTogether with a posted picture on our Instagram and FaceBook pages to help spread the word and keep things positive in our equine community and family!
