Monica Theodorescue - German National Dressage Team Coach
"I still love to ride in Bates saddles and for my horse training business, these saddles are ideal, because they can be fitted quickly to very different horses – without any need to compromise on fit."
Shane Rose - Australian Eventer
"When you’re travelling between 600 and 700 meters a minute, it comes down to a question of balance, timing, and judgment – there’s no time for the faint hearted. Bates saddles sit me in a great position, keeping me well balanced, so I’m prepared for whatever happens next."
