  • How To Tell the Difference Between a Male and a Female Saddle
  • Throughout history saddles have been primarily designed for men - yet men and women are built very differently - from the structure of the pelvis to the fact that women tend to be longer from the hip to the knee than men. In this video Certified Master Saddle Fitter and Founder of Schleese Saddlery, Jochen Schleese, shows you how to tell the difference between saddles made for men and those made for a woman's shape. He also illustrates why women riding in "male" saddles tend to suffer from position and even pain issues.
