"I have loved and ridden in Bates Saddles for almost 20 years as they are so comfortable and adjustable for my horses and I. Currently, I choose to ride in the Bates Innova range, as the external bloc helps me to feel even more comfortable and secure, giving me added confidence to compete at a high level."

"My horses benefit from the lovely wide panels, the CAIR Cushion System and the ability to fine-tune the saddle’s fit by using the EASY-CHANGE Gullets and Risers. These systems mean that I don’t need to use bulky saddle pads, allowing closer contact between my horses and I."

"Simply – Bates Saddles offer my horses and I the ultimate in comfort so that we can focus on our performance."
