All leather and workmanship is guaranteed for one year under conditions of normal wear and tear. Leather is a natural product with inherent strengths and weaknesses. We closely inspect all leather, and all products are subject to stringent quality control; however, we can assume no responsibility for flaws in the leather itself. The SCHLEESE patented AdaptTree® is guaranteed against breakage for the life of the saddle to the original owner only. All metal parts on the tree itself (gullet plate, spring-steel and stirrup bars) are guaranteed for 5 years under normal usage to the original owner only. The obligation of SCHLEESE under its warranty is limited to the repair or replacement of any saddle components or, at the sole discretion of SCHLEESE, the entire saddle. This warranty is the only warranty on saddles sold by SCHLEESE. It supersedes and replaces any other warranties or conditions, express or implied, including any conditions or warranties implied by the Sale of Goods Act or any other statute. Under no circumstances will SCHLEESE be liable for any consequential loss, cost, damage or injury arising from the use of any saddle sold.
An extended warranty may be purchased on used SCHLEESE saddles bought either through SCHLEESE directly or through third parties. The extended warranty will cover only the tree itself including gullet plate, spring steel and stirrup bars against breakage. For a one-time cost of $495.00 the extended warranty may be purchased within 10 days of an evaluation done by an authorized SCHLEESE representative (charges may apply for the examination). The warranty must be registered at SCHLEESE head office by the client within 30 days and is only valid for saddles no older than 5 years (based on serial numbers). Should the saddle be deemed not sound as is, the extended warranty will not be offered until the necessary repairs have been made.
