Since 1934, Bates Saddles have been driven by a philosophy of innovation focused on saddle performance and comfort for both you and your horse.

When it comes to saddle fit and your horse’s comfort, Bates Saddles are the optimum choice. Our research and development team have pioneered modern saddle adjustability, and are responsible for many of the saddle features that address the comfort of horses today.

We have earned our reputation as the industry experts in developing creative solutions to optimise horse and rider comfort and performance. We work alongside elite riders to develop highly specialised saddles in each of their chosen disciplines. Our success lies in identifying the changing needs of horses and riders. We are thorough in our research, employing every means available to us in evaluating our products. Bates Saddles enlists the services of expert physicists, veterinarians, and saddle fitters to assist in appraising our saddles, ensuring complete confidence in their proven advantages.

We will continue to develop saddles that put the welfare of your horse, as primary importance. Our saddle ranges are state of the art and lead the field in saddle technology for a significant performance advantage for horse and rider combinations at all levels.
