Belvedere Stables is an
Ambassador for Schleese Saddlery, a German saddle
maker based in Toronto, Canada with selected international subsidiaries.
Jochen Schleese is available several times a year for saddle fitting
clinics in the San Diego area.
Their patented AdapTree® moves with the horse, while the spring
steel gullet can be shaped and adjusted by them on site to fit
your horse perfectly, no matter if your discipline is Dressage,
English or Western.
saddles are made to last a lifetime and can be fully adjusted
from horse to horse by manipulating the gullet plate and re-stuffing.
Your horse's muscles will change shape with training and so should
the saddle to ensure proper fit. Many saddles offer changeable
gullets but don't allow for exact shaping or uneven body shapes.
Not only the horses benefit from their custom design, Schleese
also manufactures their saddles specifically for male or female
riders considering the gender-specific anatomy of human hip and
seat bones to minimize the stress on our joints while spending
time on our horses' backs.
This high quality super durable leather gives a very classic look,
while providing a smooth high gloss finish - Colors:
Black and Brown
This soft and supple ‘dry milled’ leather has a matte
finish and never loses its colour. It is dyed all the way through,
and provides the rider with more grip and stability in the saddle
- a popular choice for discerning riders. Our 'French-Style' leather
is carefully selected and meets the highest specifications. The
'dry milled' process gives a higher quality 'grain' appearance
and softer feel to the touch - Colors:
Black and Brown
Seat Sizes: 15” – 19”
The patented CC is a padded cut out in the crotch area to relieve
pressure on the front pelvic area of the rider. It is designed
specifically for riders who have had problems with saddles giving
too much contact in the front.
All of the Schleese saddles have extra wide gullets to protect
the spinous processes and the dorsal ligament system of the horse.
The gullet width increases slightly towards the cantle to allow
ultimate flexibility of the vertebrae.
Programs are available for trainers who would like to join their
sign up or to get more information for any of the clinics, please
