Dressage Portugal

"As a rider who personally chose to ride in Bates Saddles, I'm both very happy and proud to now be an official Bates Saddles Sponsored Rider – in fact, it’s an honour to be a part of the Bates team! My saddle of choice is the Bates Innova Mono+ dressage saddle. In addition to the balanced seat, I really enjoy the added grip of the Luxe Leather (European calf-leather) and being able to move both the block on the outside of the saddle flap and the position of the stirrup bar to fine tune the saddle to my riding position on each horse. Dressage comes down to the fine details – being able to ensure my horses have the freedom to move in a well-fitting saddle is really important to me and the systems in Bates Saddles allow them to also be perfectly fitted to my horses changing shape (CAIR Cushion System and EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution)."
