Bates Dressage Wide Deep Seat Saddle (Cair®)

Literally this wide dressage saddle has a narrower twist and deeper seat!  This is a fantastic saddle for all those wide sports horses and performance cobs!

Bates has had phenomenal success with their Bates WIDE range and they are releasing a new saddle.  The New Bates WIDE Dressage Saddle features Performance driven deeper seat, new comfort seat technology and an ultra –narrow twist, allowing the rider to sit deeper into the saddle. 

Anyone who has ridden a wide horse knows the feeling of not being able to get deep into the seat.  Often riders complain that wide saddles can be uncomfortable; you can feel like it is almost impossible to get your legs around the horse, let alone feel supported in the saddle!  Bates has designed this saddle to be wide for the horse, but narrow for the rider, with the narrower twist and deeper seat supporting your position.

The tree is anatomically shaped and has a generous panel offering an exceptionally large footprint on the horses back.  It has the tried and tested Y-Girthing and EASY-CHANGE gullet plate systems which make Bates saddles so adjustable.

The Bates Wide Dressage + has adjustable stirrup bars and double lined Opulence leather for added comfort and grip.

Expert's view

They are fantastic design for the wider natives & to be honest there is no saddle on the market that I would choose over one of these, they are so comfortable & put you in the correct position and give you the comfort and support you need to do schooling and hacking. 

I then decided to purchase another one for another home bred black welsh section d stallion we have and again we love it, I hope to be out competing in it this season. 

I can’t recommend these saddles enough for anyone losing the will to live thinking they can’t have a dressage saddle for there native because nothing is wide enough they need to try the Bates Wide Dressage!
