*All measurements provided have either been taken directly from saddle stamps, or are approximate measurements taken by experienced Good Apple Equine Consignment staff.  This information is provided as a courtesy to our customers, and is not a guarantee of size or fit as each individual saddle differs from the next (including those of the same brand and model).

In very good used condition, this is a lovely Schleese Obrigado  Custom with a HK Seat dressage saddle with a 17ins seat and wide width fitting.   Skid row panels (SR), No: 1 panels, Shoulder Relief (SR)  Made in September 2016.

Schleese saddles are easy to adjust by a qualified saddle fitter or saddler, and there are many Schleese fitters in the USA.

Schleese’s best-seller allows the dressage rider to feel the breathing of the horse, with the horse moving as freely as if he were not under saddle.   The Obrigado provides several unique features benefiting horse and rider – several current and former Olympians who are now using the Obrigado on their horses have said that the saddle is so soft and the seat so deep that it makes them feel like they are one with their horses.   Built on a modified AdapTree®, the Obrigado offers the most extreme shoulder freedom for the horse, with the softest seat in the dressage industry.

Obrigado means ‘thank you’ in Portuguese.  It was developed together with the head trainer of the Lusitano Association in Sao Paulo Brazil.  He came up with the name because he actually felt his horses were saying ‘thank you’ for being afforded such freedom of movement.   This saddle will allow you to get so close to your horse that you can actually feel him breathe.  It has become the saddle of choice for riders of  all levels,  and has been proven especially effective for the ‘baroque-style’ horse.

Saddle Width Measurement:  Please note we measure 3-4 ins down from the center of the pommel and in, to where we can see the horse would start to make contact with the panels. We feel this is a more meaningful measurement than measuring button to button or at the extreme front of the saddle.
