Schleese Saddlery Announces the Sheridan All Around Western Saddle

Schleese continues to innovate western saddles as it makes inroads into the extensive western market.

At Schleese Saddlery we recognize the unique physiology of female riders focusing on our mission as the female saddle specialist.

As stated by our founder, Jochen Schleese, “In a world that has historically had a ‘one size fits all’ mentality, our hand constructed well appointed, superior quality western saddle is the only brand that ensures maximum comfort and performance custom made for female riders – achieving the perfect partnership between horse and rider for the ultimate riding experience”.

We accomplish this through unparalleled craftsmanship, world-class experience, and superior fitting practices.  Our infinitely adjustable saddles are designed for the female physiology, creating truly life-changing comfort and responsiveness.

Sheridan – All Around Western Saddle   see it here:

 The Sheridan has been created to fill a high demand for a traditional and economically priced all-around western saddle. To keep things simple, we have opted for a standard hind cinch and standard western rigging with a traditional ranch style appearance.  The Sheridan features our industry leading adjustability for the horse and rider, it is lightweight and comfortable and allows the rider the option to adjust one’s own saddle anywhere anytime, on your own or with the support of one of our fully certified CSE’s.

The Sheridan Western saddle has a number of benefits:

Advantages of the Sheridan: custom fit for a woman’s anatomy while being infinitely adjustable for both horse and rider. Affords maximum comfort while ensuring injury prevention.

Features for Optimum fit to your horse: The Sheridan’s adjustable panel fitting elements can fit every horse and be adjusted as it changes and develops using our patented Western AdapTree® which flexes with the lateral movement of the horse. The saddle incorporates a wide channel for spinal clearance and to promote back health. Its large weight-bearing bars add support allowing freedom of movement.

Benefits to the Rider: The adjustable seat balance accommodates different body types. This is supported by the interchangeable and adjustable Western/English rigging system and the adjustable stirrup bars. The panel offers the options of sheepskin, leather or wool/felt!
