*All measurements provided have either been taken directly from saddle stamps, or are approximate measurements taken by experienced Good Apple Equine Consignment staff. On English saddles we measure at approximately the level at which the horse’s longissimus dorsii and trapezius muscles should comfortably make contact with the saddle. Western saddles are measured concho to concho.   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 gently used condition, this is a lovely Schleese Obrigado dressage saddle with a 17ins seat and an XXW width fitting.   Skid row panels (SR),  Shoulder Relief (SR)   S denotes the Schleese patented AdapTree® – generally considered to be the most adjustable and equine-friendly tree available today.     Made in April, 2017.  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.
