Bates Elevation+ Saddle with HART

We love the Bates Elevation+ Saddle because the beautiful leather and design will have your and your horse riding in comfort. 

Engineered for precision performance, the Bates Elevation range combines technical design and innovation to raise the bar for horse and rider.

Opulence leather features a soft milled leather on the exterior of the saddle, renowned for its ultra-soft and grippy characteristics, ensuring immediate rider comfort, security and reducing any ‘breaking in’ time traditionally associated with new saddles.

Luxe Leather is hand-selected from the finest calf-leather in the world and meticulously cared for throughout its specialized tanning process. This will guarantee exceptional performance in strength, richness of color, ultra-soft feel and level of grip to meet the unique demands of an equestrian saddle. This leather is custom ordered and may take 14 weeks for delivery.
