Bates Outback Stock Saddle with Swinging Fender & HART

We love the Bates Outback Stock Saddle with Swinging Fender because its leading technology ensures the ultimate in comfort, whether trail riding, breaking in horses, or working on the station. Traditional in looks, this saddle handles the modern demands of a high-performance saddle. It is the only stock saddle with a tree that offers lateral flexion to work with the horse’s muscular movement and world-leading performance systems. The Swinging Fender model suits those riders who like the position and contact offered by the swinging fender. Features Heritage Leather which upholds the traditional European practices of natural oil and wax tannage. The high oil and wax content of this performance leather ensures optimum suppleness and enhanced rider grip.
