The Bates Innova Dressage Saddle is the most innovative saddle in the world. The saddle features a deep, yet surprisingly open seat that works in partnership with the revolutionary Contourbloc® which is anatomically contoured to the rider’s leg. The Contourbloc® is a ground breaking innovation in dressage, anatomically contoured to your leg making it distinctly unique. The bloc offers unprecedented security, as your leg rides in and behind the bloc, eliminating any 'lifting' of the leg without any restriction.
The Bates Innova Saddle offers a high performance panel for your horse with a flatter and broader bearing area creating an exceptional contact footprint on your horses back. The Tree is sculpted to be wafer thin in the waist, eliminating potential interference for men and women. The seamless transition from your seat through the length of your leg results from the interference of the panel and saddle flaps.
The Bates Innova Dressage saddle helps to maximise freedom of movement and comfort for your horse and features the adjustable Y-Girthing system for optimum stability along with the Flexibloc System which allows the rider to adjust their knee and thigh support for an individually tailored ride.
The Bates saddles offer the Easy-Change™ Fit Solution which combines The Easy-Change™ Gullet System along with The Easy-Change™ Riser System to help achieve the perfect fit.
