Overview

Why We Love This

The Bates Artiste Dressage Saddle offers an extremely close ride in support of total harmony between horse and rider. When it comes to communication, the monoflap design enables the saddle to feel like it disappears, letting the rider feel the horse as never before. With the unique shaping of the saddle flaps, aids are transmitted to the horse clearly and directly. Streamlined girth points and unique attachments remove any bulk or lumps from under the rider’s legs. The sweet spot in the seat guides the rider to a neutral position, where pelvic bones can be felt squarely and contact is closest. This allows for a longer leg, perfect alignment, and support for your upper body balance.

This saddle offers a customizable fit with world-leading performance systems, the CAIR Cushion System and the EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution. Features Luxe leather hand-selected from the finest calf leather in the world. An adjustable ergonomic stirrup bar allows precise customization of stirrup bar position. Shock-absorbent Bates Synergy Panel provides ultimate freedom for the horse. New S-buckle billet attachment provides the slimmest profile under the rider’s legs and allows for easy replacement of billets. Y-girthing provides optimal saddle stability. Bates Elastiflex tree allows for adjustability.

Please note, a #3 Phillips screwdriver should be used to adjust this saddle.

Imported.

Reviews
Bates Artiste Monoflap Dressage Saddle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the saddle Got the test ride and loved the super deep seat and how secure I felt riding in it. I have the jump version of this saddle as well, so it fits the horse perfectly and can be fully adjusted. Unfortunately the test ride was too small for me. I am 5'10" and in the jump saddle I fit in size 1 but this one caused lower back pain and a weird position for me. Going to try size 2. Leather is super soft and the mono flap gives it a super close contact feel to the horse.
