Saddles are one of the most important pieces of tack for horse and rider. Ensuring your saddle is maintained properly through correct leather care is vital to ensure your saddle’s performance. Prevention is the best cure for leather, and regular care will dramatically increase the life of your saddle. Remember to protect your leather before exposure to sun, rain and sweat.
Discover a position so natural and a connection so sensitive your saddle all but disappears as your performance comes to life. This saddle celebrates the art of dressage – the sculpted performance conducted by horse and rider in choreographing every movement with emotion, power, and grace.
The inaugural “Applied Anatomy and Biomechanics Conference” proudly supported by Bates Saddles, was held successfully at the end of 2019 in Perth, Western Australia.
