The Bates Dressage+ Luxe Leather Saddle delivers high performance in a classic looking package as innovative features work to ensure your horse’s comfort and your balanced riding position. It’s crafted from Luxe Leather, hand-selected from the finest calf leather in the world. This leather is cared for meticulously throughout its specialized tanning process to guarantee exceptional performance in strength, color richness and ultra-soft feel.

The Dressage+ Saddle offers a seat with a narrow twist and greater width behind, plus molded knee inserts, to promote your increased comfort in the optimal dressage position. Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bars and the Adjustable Flexibloc system let you customize this saddle to your preference; recessed stirrup panels further promote a close contact feel. Built on the Elastiflex tree with quilted panel points, horse comfort and fit is supported by the EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution and CAIR® panels.

Description of features:

Elastiflex tree has a rigid head to maintain clearance over the horse’s withers. It also offers the lateral flexion to work with your horse’s movements. Precision engineered to be lightweight, symmetrical and ultra-durable, this tree is guaranteed against breakage for 10 years under normal riding conditions.

Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bars allow you to alter the positioning of the stirrup bars, resulting in complete control over your preferred riding position.

Adjustable Flexibloc system enables you to customize the support offered for an individualized riding position. It provides great flexibility for altering the support offered by the saddle, dependent on usage.

EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution is comprised of the EASY-CHANGE Gullet system and the EASY-CHANGE Riser system. It offers a total saddle fitting solution for absolute horse comfort and your peace of mind.

Select the optimal gullet width in the EASY-CHANGE Gullet system for your horse’s current shape and muscling. Make adjustments within the saddle panels for optimal balance and clearance with the EASY-CHANGE Riser system. All adjustments are measurable, symmetrical and completely reversible, ensuring total confidence in the saddle’s ability to be custom fitted to the horse’s changing shape for optimal comfort and performance.

CAIR® Cushion system uses air cushions in place of traditional panel fittings. CAIR air cushion technology inside generously sized Bates performance panels provides significant advantages in the way it distributes the rider’s weight and cushions the horse’s back. Under your weight, air cushions continually mold to mirror your horse’s individual conformation and working muscles. They ensure a close, even contact over a much larger weight-bearing area and help eliminate instances of pressure points.

In cushioning your horse’s back, the dynamic nature of the air ensures it works in synergy with your horse’s muscles, rather than your horse’s muscles working against a static medium. Additionally, air provides the ultimate shock absorption, reducing instances of trauma to your horse’s back.

Adjustable Y-Girthing enables customized adjustments for your horse’s individual conformation. It maximizes saddle stability as it secures the saddle from both front and rear.

QUICK-CHANGE Girth Points offer peace of mind in knowing that the points can be fitted to factory standard throughout the life of the saddle. This girth system also allows customization by a saddler or saddle fitter. The unique design ensures the girth points are highly durable and ultra slim-profile, which supports a close contact feel and increased comfort for horse and rider.


Imported.
Care: Due to the more natural properties of Luxe Leather, this saddle may require additional dressing to prevent moisture loss and to protect the leather, particularly in high areas of wear. Treated in this manner, your new saddle will achieve the traditional, rich patina of aged, worked leather and you can expect years of excellent service from your saddle.
