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 use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from 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'!).

The Power of innovation is evident in the difference the Bates Isabell Dressage Saddle makes to the comfort and performance of you and your horse.

Developed in consultation with World Dressage Champion, Isabell Werth. The difference the Bates Isabell Dressage Saddle makes to the rider is quite profound as radical features take the effort out of sitting in the correct position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great saddle I purchased my Isabella Bates Jumping saddle a few years ago. I was delighted with the quality and durability in addition to the great fit for my horse. I recently purchased the dressage saddle and it fits my horse perfectly. I like the CAIR system with the interchangeable gullets. The procedure to change the gullets is greatly improved over my jumping saddle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfy! I just got this saddle about a month ago, so I can't speak for its durability, but its very comfy! I got the "extended knee flap" in a medium tree, 17" for my 15.3 dutch warmblood. It fit initially, but it started to settle so I had to put a mattes pad underneath to keep it from pinching. At least its an adjustable saddle so you can just put another tree in once it settles, if you buy the other trees. Overall, very comfy, easy to sit in, doesn't push my hips forward at all, nice suede knee rolls.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Personal Fit Saddle was good fit for horse and saddle seat was very balanced and comfy. But saddle panel not wide/long enough for my leg from thigh to knee. Knee hung over saddle edge. Thus, couldnt purchase.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
