Bates Wide Dressage+ Saddle with HART

We love the Bates Wide Dressage+ saddle because the beautiful leather and comfortable leather options will have you and your horse riding in comfort. 

The Bates Wide Dressage saddle is a cutting edge dressage saddle specially designed for the wider horse. The performance driven deep seat delivers an unsurpassed level of comfort for you and contact with your horse never previously experienced in a WIDE saddle. The deeper seat and ultra-narrow waist enables you to sit deeper into the saddle to support a well-balanced and central position. For your horse, an ultra-thin panel, wide chamber, large, even bearing surface and adjustable Y-girthing ensure optimal saddle stability and freedom of movement for a comfortable fit.

This saddle comes with these options:

Opulence leather is 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 customer order and can take 14 weeks for delivery.
