Bates Isabell Dressage Saddle with HART

We love the Bates Isabell Dressage Saddle because of the beautiful leather options and comfort design for you and your horse. 

The deep seat in the Bates Isabell Saddle is unique; positioning you in a central and balanced position that ensures correct alignment is effortless. 

The saddle provides the ultimate connection with your horse through a seamless, ultra-narrow transition from your seat through the length of your leg. The saddle offers tremendous support for your horse, through the anatomic shaping of the tree, generous panel design, an Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar and world leading performance systems, including the CAIR Cushion System, resulting in unprecedented comfort and complete freedom of movement. 

Experience the ultimate connection with your horse and become a winning partnership in a Bates Isabell saddle.
