Bates saddles are designed to help you and your horse perform at their best. Cair panels are featured on Bates saddles, which are composed of high-quality leather. The Cair panels, girthing options, and variable gullet plates all contribute to a wide range of flexibility in these saddles.
Bates Saddles are the best choice when it comes to saddle fit and comfort for your horse. Bates research and development team has a long history of success when it comes to saddle fit and your horse's comfort. Bates Saddles research and development team have pioneered modern technology with superior performance and quality. The Bates Dressage range now allows Placement of Stirrup Bars. This is crucial, because it's the main reason why some riders fail to achieve shoulder, hip, and heel alignment, as well as a quiet lower leg. They just cannot do so on many saddles as the  stirrup bar is too far forwards forcing the rider into a chair seat as a result. With these saddles, the rider must bring the lower leg back to achieve shoulder, hip, and heel alignment, but the stirrup no longer hangs vertically and instead slopes backwards. The rider then starts to trot, swinging his leg back and forth with each rise and fall in an attempt to stand on an unaligned stirrup. Bates  dressage saddles offer 3 positions to choose from with their adjustable stirrup bars making it simple to sit in alignment If you intend to pursue dressage at any level, make sure the saddle you purchase has a stirrup bar position that allows you to have a vertical stirrup leather while you are in the proper shoulder/hip/heel position.

  • How do I know what saddle size I am?

Saddle seat size varies from styles of saddles.

All purpose, Dressage and Jump saddles range from 15 inch or 38 cm in a child saddle to a 16 inch or 40 cm junior saddle then adult saddles start at  16.5 inch 42cm /17 inch 43cm / 17.5 inch 44cm /18 inch 46 cm . The first thing is a saddle should be comfortable for the rider . A basic rule of thumb is that if you turn your hand on the side you should have 4 fingers behind your bottom once you are sitting comfortably. Length of your thigh and the style of saddle can make a difference as can the stirrup length you are comfortable in . For a general guide we use the size of jeans you wear to help us recommend a size when you are purchasing on line. VERY generally if you are a size 10 or smaller in adult jeans the 42 cm is likely to be a match . If you are a size 12- 14 a 43cm should fit. If you are a 14-16 in jeans then a 44cm would be comfortable and if you are an 18 plus the 46 cm size would be the most comfortable. Obviously this is a generic quick guide but hopefully it helps.

Stock saddles come in S M L XL in the Bates brand but in inches in the Syd Hill brand 15 inch being small and 16 inch being a Medium seat and 17 inch being a Large to XL . 

Western saddles are measured form the inside seat and so range form a 12 - 14 inch . If you measure a stock saddle you measure from the front of the saddle to the back of the seat making the equivalent sizes larger. 15-17 inches
