The Bates Isabell Icon Dressage Saddle marries elegance and high performance. This state-of-the-art design celebrates Isabell Werth and her lifelong contributions to the sport of dressage. It frees your horse’s full scope of movement, and it promotes a perfectly balanced seat, effortless alignment and unrivaled connection.

Made with Luxe Leather—simply the finest calf leather in the world—the Isabell Icon provides the ultimate feel in the seat. You will immediately notice the soft elasticity, exceptional grip, beautiful depth of color and strength, all of which make it the ultimate in comfort and prestige.

For a truly competitive edge, Horse and Rider Technology (HART®) ensures a level of adjustability that makes it perfectly suited to dressage horses as they move through the levels.

Beneath its refined and classic lines, this saddle offers a perfect dressage seat plus technologies to let you tailor it to suit your biomechanics. When you optimize the saddle for your natural position, your balance and stability are enhanced.

Key features:

  • The dressage seat places you exceptionally close to your horse. It has an ultra-narrow and low twist, plus just enough support to help you to move in harmony and deliver aids cleanly.
  • The movable overgirth redefines stability for dressage. It wraps the saddle flaps around your horse, giving you an unrestricted feel without any interfering movement of the saddle flap. It promotes stillness in your lower legs and upper body and helps make even the most demanding moves look effortless. You can locate the overgirth in the optimal position to lie centrally between your girth points/billets for perfect presentation.
  • The Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar lets you customize the location of your stirrup bar to meet your individual alignment. This adjustability further enhances the ease of maintaining balance and being able to deliver aids efficiently and effectively.
  • The Adjustable Flexibloc system offers subtle and effective support discreetly below the saddle flaps and luxurious soft cushioning. You can place each Flexibloc optimally to create a groove for your leg.
  • The Adjustable Y-Girthing system helps achieve an equal distribution of pressure along the length of the saddle tree for tremendous stability. When adjusted for an individual horse, this girthing system results in an incredible reduction in ‘white noise’ for your horse and accentuates clear communication between you and your horse. A new streamlined adjuster fitting removes any lumps for perfect seamless contact.
  • The Bates SynergyPanel is designed to provide the ultimate close contact. Exclusive to Bates Saddles, the low-profile panels sculpt away from your horse’s shoulders and transition contact seamlessly and gradually onto your horse’s body. The effect helps free the shoulders and achieving optimal space around the withers. The connection between you and your horse is accentuated through channeling your legs with seamless contact to let your horse feel your aids clearly. Your horse will instantly respond to the soft cushioning of the CAIR® Cushion System, which lets them extend, lift and round to their fullest potential.
  • HART is one of the greatest gifts for any horse. It allows the saddle to continue to be adapted and adjusted as the horse develops, grows and changes throughout the levels. You will know you are protecting your horse’s back through your partnership with the kind of comfort only possible through HART.
