As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

With its narrow twist and generous seat, the Bates Dressage+ Saddle provides increased support, optimum position, and balance for the rider. Ability to adjust stirrup bar position and adjustable Flexiblocs allow for custom fit and support. Made from double-lined Opulence leather that is soft and feels broken-in without the wait. Features an adjustable ergonomic stirrup bar to optimize rider comfort and correct, effective leg position. Adjustable Y-girthing provides a custom fit to your horse’s conformation and ultimate saddle stability. The EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution allows adjustment of the fit of the saddle with the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System and optimization of balance and clearance with the EASY-CHANGE Riser System. The CAIR Cushion System utilizes the dynamic nature of air to provide ultimate shock absorption and even weight distribution for horse comfort. Comes with a medium gullet installed.

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