HorseShape Laser; Schleese Takes Saddle Fitting to the Next Level

By Edited Press Release


Schleese is excited to announce the introduction of a revolutionary new saddle fitting tool, The HorseShape Laser, to measure the horse’s back. A German initiative, this laser device takes a complete 3D image of the horse's back shape within seconds to assist in custom manufacturing or custom fitting the saddle that will be then shipped to the client from head office. The measurements will be calibrated with our Arc Device to ensure the closest possible fit. A client may choose to purchase the scan so they can see the 3D image of their horse’s back for their records, but this service will be complimentary for any new saddle order that requires manufacturing. HorseShape is continuing to work on the technology to compare scans to clearly show clients how their horse has changed over time.
The Horse Shape Laser is a wonderful addition to Schleese's "toolbox" of innovative measuring tools, including its Arc Device and SaddleSizer. This new technology is exciting, as Schleese can now complement its Saddlefit 4 Life saddle fitting techniques with cutting edge technology. The HorseShape Laser is exclusively available in North America from Schleese to any saddle fitter or saddle company, allowing any professional to improve the ultimate saddle fitting experience as well as lifting the standard of education in equine ergonomics and saddle fitting. This service will be available starting in the Fall of 2014. For further information and inquiries, please contact
Jochen Schleese graduated from Passier as a Certified Master Saddler and came to Canada in 1986 to establish and register the trade of saddlery in North America, operating the only authorized saddlery training facility in Ontario. Schleese Saddlery Service is the world leading manufacturer of saddles designed for women, specializing in the unique anatomical requirements of female riders.
