Designed in partnership with Olympian Isabell Werth, the Bates Isabell dressage saddle allows the rider to sit deeper in the saddle for maximum effective use of a rider's aids and the ultimate feeling of being one with the horse. Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar enables the rider to achieve a custom fit for perfect alignment of hip to ankle for a comfortable, correct and effective leg position. Only the finest buttery-soft European calfskin is hand-selected for the Bates Isabell with Luxe leather for the ultimate pairing of luxury and technology.

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

Reviews
Bates Isabell Saddle is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I really wanted to like this saddle I ordered this saddle as a test ride and was really hoping it would work as a stopgap for my new horse- something that would allow us both to begin working comfortably while he built top line. My horse has been really good natured about trying saddles but he was clearly unhappy with the Bates Isabell (despite the fact that it appeared to fit). The quality of the saddle is disappointing. I ordered the Luxe version and the leather on the body of the saddle seemed cheap. The quality of the billet straps is poor- they are waxy and stiff. I understand that this is an economy grade saddle but it doesn’t have the feel of being a good value. I really didn’t not like the external flap strap. This is a pointless appendage. I have an old Wintec Isabell (circa 2002) with wool flocking in my tack room that it is a much better saddle than this Bates (even though it’s basically falling apart at this point). I was hoping that this saddle would maybe be a nicer version of that old classic. It isn’t. Smartpak is a great company and the test ride program is great, do not buy this saddle until you have had a chance to demo it...but honestly even then I am not convinced it’s not worth the cost of shipping.
