Step 2

Saddle Ergonomist

In order to be able to adjust SCHLEESE saddles correctly on site, a further training as an ergonomist is required. The training is carried out by certified SCHLEESE saddle ergonomists and Jochen Schleese, founder of the S4L Academy. The practical training includes e.g. the work with a special saddle tree adjusting machine as well as smaller sewing work and an extensive training for upholstery. In addition, there is an extensive practical and assistance period with a SCHLEESE saddle ergonomist with at least 80 horses. A complete education as saddler is not required for the competent sale and adaptation of SCHLEESE saddles. Entrepreneurial lateral entrants with manual skills, love for horses and riding and active access to people who see their job as their calling can be very successful at SCHLEESE.


In contact with your customers, as a SCHLEESE saddle ergonomist, you determine which saddle suits the training level of horse and rider best and you evaluate where there is a need for correction. (More about saddle fitting) The stocktaking and initial analysis on site is the perfect starting point for determining the optimal saddle for horse and rider and your sale of a new SCHLEESE saddle. You decide on-site whether the existing saddle can be optimized or if it is more beneficial for your customer to have a new SCHLEESE saddle individually manufactured via order. Your cooperation with the customer goes beyond the delivery of the new SCHLEESE saddle. Our service aims to be long-term with a valuable customer loyalty. Your task is the regular control - at least once a year - of the SCHLEESE saddle in use. These inspections are carried out independently and at your own expense at the customer's premises.
