Bates Dressage Saddle with HART

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.
