Jes Elite Dressage
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Schleese
Model: Jes Elite Dressage
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Bought the saddle used from a local rep about 5 yrs ago. Paid 2600 CAN. Had never tried a Schleese before, but was hooked after a test ride on this one...

Likes: Very soft seat, provides support AND freedom to move, attractive looking saddle, excellent/beautiful leather, wearing very well, feels good to sit in.

Dislikes: Schleese doesn't come to my area so i have to hire a saddle fitter from a different company to do the adjustments. As far as the saddle itself goes, don't have a single beef about it and I have been riding in it for 5 years. In fact, I liked it so much I have since bought 4 other dressage saddles from Schleese for a variety of different horses.

Quality: Excellent. Leather is beautiful, soft and a lovely dark brown colour. No problems at all with the Flair and I live in an extreme climate. Saddle tree withstood a horse laying down with the saddle on! Billets still in excellent shape. All the stitching is absolutely intact. I have 3 other schleeses at the moment and they are all in excellent condition. Expensive saddles, but you get what you pay for.

Summary: I'm A HUGE SCHLEESE FAN. I recommend Schleese far above any other brand I've tried (DK, Passier, Amerigo, Ridgemont, Collegiate, etc) I have had several of their saddles so I think I can reasonably profess to their quality and usability. Even though Schleese doesn't come to my area it is very easy to get a hold of them (they often get back to you within hours) and they are quick on repairs, etc. I also find the company extremely accommodating.... they bend over backwards to make sure their saddle makes you happy. They will design a saddle for you or they will keep sending more out until you are happy. Their website keeps me up to date on all their new stuff, and NO, I'm not a schleese dealer/rep and I have no affiliation to them at all.
