Be as one… the secret to ignite your dressage performance.
Discover the artistry in bold innovations that are surprisingly about the subtlety in riding.
A position so natural and a connection so sensitive the saddle all but disappears and your performance is amplified.
The Bates Artiste comes with Luxe leather upgrade as standard and for a limited time only the Artiste will be supplied with complimentary matching leathers.
SweetSpot® - The SweetSpot in the seat guides you to neutral, where you feel your pelvic bones squarely and contact is closest. This allows for a longer leg, perfect alignment and support for your upper body balance.
SynergyPanel® - A low profile panel in dressage is revolutionary. This panel achieves a quick and seamless transition from your seat to your horse for unprecedented connection.
The Bates® SynergyPanel® is the ultimate for freeing your horse to perform to their full potential.
It is simply the most shock absorbent and protective panel for your horse’s comfort and a full range of movement.
Monoflap - When it comes to communication, the monoflap design enables the saddle to disappear, so you feel your horse, as never before. The unique shaping of the saddle flap, allows your aids to transmit to your horse cleanly and directly.
Moveable FlexiContourbloc - Enjoy unprecedented support to stabilise your leg and eliminate lift, with a contour that flows through the full length of the bloc. It is the quiet interaction of this FlexiContourbloc in riding that is like no other and has to be ridden in to experience its power.
Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar - The Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar further ensures maintaining perfect balance and strength is effortless, as the saddle is customised specifically to your individual riding position.
Luxe Leather - Simply the perfect riding surface with its luxurious and tactile grip. When it comes to leather there isn’t any finer!
