Not all Schleese are adjustable. It depends on which tree it has. You can tell by the serial number. If it has an H it is a hennig tree and adjustable also I think the S is adjustable also but call Scheelse and they will tell you

yes, either saddles are like in the 5K new not even possible for me but some barely used are drop to 3K, so it's already a cut but it's a lot, I would want to make sure they are good saddles before even considering buying one.
Now if I had to choose between both? I would probably go for Schleese, because of the adjustable tree and I heard it was much better than the adjustable tree for wintec, bates, and even the Toulouse that came out.
I like hoe the gullet is nicely " spread" on the Schleese to not touch the spine of the horse
But the CWD looks really good too, and I could probably get it cheaper from France ? Not sure about that.

I found this website on another forum and the lady who own the business has some extremely goof reviews, and excellent saddles as well.

I really love the Schleese Wave french leather, and the infinity is looking good too. These are wool flocked

I really love the CWD french monoflap too . This one is foam flocked

For the overpricing I really don't know either, why are they so expensive? What is so GREAT about them that is not comparable to let's say a 1K or 2K saddle?

CWD is AMAZING. If I had 3-4k to spend on a saddle, hands down I would get a CWD. Prestige, Amerigo, Barnsby, etc are all GREAT saddles, are a little cheaper, but you can't beat a CWD

another vote for CDW ,
Apparently CDW are better than Schleese ?

Good to know then, if you had the money and would go for it, means it is a really good saddle

this is not bad for a excellent bridle that is high quality leather. Especially if the same makers are asking 5K for their saddles.. it actually sounds cheap to find their bridle at 500$, but still, im sure you can find them used, if they were well taken care of for less, and still get a lot out of them.
So your friend gave you a good deal or was it what the bridle was worth ?
