A 2011 model, in excellent condition. looks like its only a year old.

The Bates Show saddle mixes tradition with modern features, a neat looking saddle with leather covered buttons, pencil knees, edge stitched girth points and flaps, combined with the deep that seat most riders demand.

This saddle would be just a well suited to dressage as showing for a rider that likes a deep seat but prefers a saddle without the huge knee blocks.

The panels are cair plus 8mm risers have been inserted to the front to give extra lift, these risers can be removed if not required, (its a DIY removal just open up and pull them out)

Currently fitted with a wide gullet, we can change to suit, add gullet alteration to your order.

Includes matching Bates soft stirrup leathers and a Roma fleece saddle cover.
