We love the Bates Dressage Saddle because, beneath the traditional lines and elegant appearance, the Bates Dressage saddle offers high performance, as innovative features work to ensure optimal horse comfort and a balanced rider position. The seat features a narrow waist with greater width behind the rider for increased support of an optimal dressage position.
