    Default Adjusting a Schleese

    How easy or difficult is it to make adjustments to the Hennig trees in a Schleese? I have my eye on one right and am curious. Do the adjustments have to be made by a Schleese rep, or can they be made by any qualified saddle fitter?

    Thanks in advance!
    Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

    Jochen has a youtube channel that explains how he does a saddle fitting and adjusts the saddles. If a saddle fitter has been trained to adjust Schleese saddles and has the proper equipment to do, I don't see why that wouldn't be ok.
    When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

    The adjustments can be made by anyone with the proper equipment. However, if the adjuster is not affiliated with Schleese, then you void the warranty on the tree which includes the gullet plate and the spring steel.

    Yes, but if you purchased the saddle used the warrenty is no longer valid anyway. It only applies to saddles purchased directly from Schleese. I think many people who own used Schleese saddles are unaware of this. Of course Schleese will sell you a warrenty on your used saddle's tree for a couple hundred.
