"I have used Bates Saddles since I was 10 years old. In fact, I still have my original saddle; my niece currently competes in it and I am sure that my daughter Charlotte will too."

"With my current Bates Saddles, I like the adjustability of the EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution and I find my horses and those that work with me; relax and accept the saddle universally. The quality craftsmanship of design and the CAIR® Cushion System all provide me with the peace of mind I need to get on with discovering new performance heights. I am able to get the best I can from horse to horse and therefore provide my horses with their best opportunity to excel in a very demanding and competitive sport."

"These features combined, make a huge difference to me as a rider and to my horses – I wouldn’t be without my Bates saddles."
