Luxe Leather

Experience the prestige of owning a Bates Saddle made especially for you!

For the ultimate in comfort and luxury leather, you can special order your new Bates Saddle in premium Luxe Leather.

Luxe Leather

Luxe Leather is hand-selected from the finest calf-leather in the world and meticulously cared for throughout its specialised tanning process. This will guarantee exceptional performance in strength, richness of colour, ultra-soft feel and level of grip to meet the unique demands of an equestrian saddle.

Leather is a natural product and as such any marks, scars or colour variations within the Luxe Leather are not a fault and add to the individual character of your new Bates Luxe Leather saddle.

Your new saddle will feel exceptionally grippy, luxurious and succulent from day one, providing you with the ultimate in comfort and prestige.


Caring for new Luxe Leather

Due to the more natural properties of Luxe Leather, these saddles 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.

Adjustable Flexibloc


System A revolutionary system that enables you to customise the support offered for your individual riding position. Offers great flexibility for altering the support offered by the saddle, dependent on usage

…CAIR Cushion System


The revolutionary CAIR Cushion System replaces the traditional fillings in your saddle panel with air. There are two independently sealed air Cushions within each saddle panel. The concept of air, as the ultimate in cushioning for your horse, is simple. Air being a fluid medium will constantly adapt to the horse’s working muscles. This means that your weight will be distributed evenly across the entire length of the cushion, virtually eliminating pressure points.

This extraordinary comfort results in freer movement, better carriage, and a happier horse.

For such a simple concept the dramatic difference the CAIR Cushion System makes to your horse’s comfort and performance is profound.

Ergonomic Stirrup Bar

The design registered stirrup bar removes at least one thickness of leather from under your thigh, ensuring even closer contact and maximising your comfort. The unique shaping offers secure attachment of your stirrup leather, while enabling the leather to come free if required during a fall. Featuring a recessed channel to the stirrup keeper, further eliminating interference with your leg for a closer feel of your pony and increased comfort.

Performance Panel

Bates saddles feature a generous panel, designed to ensure a large ‘footprint’ on your pony’s back, maximising the weight bearing surface of the saddle and resulting in a reduction in pressure and increased comfort for your pony. Coupled with a wide and even chamber, the performance panels support your pony’s working muscles and maximise movement in their shoulder area.


Ex Demo Saddles have been used to try on horses and may have been ridden in lightly. There may be some stirrup leather rubs and marking on girth straps or likewise small aesthetic blemish.  

Any major marks will be photographed and included in product photos.
