"My first ride in the Bates Isabell was a revelation, I suddenly realised the feeling I had been missing. This saddle had an instant and dramatic effect on my riding and I immediately felt an improvement in my horses as I felt closer to them, my aids were more effective and the horses felt much softer over the back. It was a transformation that far exceeded my expectations. Now I’ve learnt more about Bates Saddles research and development including the CAIR Cushion System and EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution it’s easy to understand why you feel such a difference. This saddle is a game changer!"
