The Bates Isabell Dressage Saddle is an extremely popular saddle,  this Australian made model is a different shape to the newer Isabell's, the tree and panels have more shape, often suiting an average to curved back rather than straight, the panels are also very compact so great for a short back. This makes this saddle very sought after and is hard to find in this condition.

It features grippy grained leather, adjustable knee blocks, flock panels and an easy change gullet, curently fitted with a black medium gullet, we can change to suit.  

Bates advise that this is a 17.5" saddle howevever it measures much smaller as is usaual with these older Isabell's, the seat measures only 16.5" not 17.5".

Made in 2000, its in great condition for its age.
