Luxe Leather

Luxe Leather is hand-selected from the finest calf-skin 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.

“Where perfection is everything, I don’t accept anything less, especially when it comes to my choice of saddle.  When I received the Bates Innova Mono+ with new Luxe Leather upgrade I was absolutely blown away! Not only does it put me in complete balance, it gives me added security thanks to the amazing new Luxe Leather. I’ve believed in Bates saddles since the beginning but this new leather is something else, and now I won’t ride in any other saddle!Amy Stovold, Dressage Competitor

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.

“I have been riding in the Bates Isabell Saddle for more than 10 years and find the fit, comfort and performance of the saddle perfect for both my horses and I. The upgraded Luxe Leather model instantly provides an even more luxurious, moulded and secure feeling. I absolutely love it!Hayley Beresford, Dressage Competitor

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.
