The Bates Artiste Monoflap Dressage Saddle provides a close ride that promotes ultimate harmony between the horse and the rider. When it comes to communication, the monoflap design allows the saddle to vanish, allowing the rider to experience the horse like never before. Aids are clearly and directly transmitted to the horse because to the saddle flaps' unique shape.

Streamlined girth points and one-of-a-kind attachments eliminate any bulk or bumps from beneath the rider's legs.

The skirts have been locked down using moulding.
When used to attach a solid hand grip, a d-ring that can be tilted to allow it to lie flat.
The creativity of innovative ideas produces a transformative connection between horse and rider.

Features to look for:
Luxe Leather is hand-selected from the world's best calf leather and delicately cared for during the tanning process. To fulfil the special demands of an equestrian saddle, it ensures extraordinary strength, colour richness, ultra-soft feel, and level of grip.
The rider is guided to a neutral position by the sweet spot in the seat, where the pelvic bones can be felt squarely and contact is closest. This enables for a longer leg, precise alignment, and upper body balance support.

The Ergonomic Adjustable Stirrup Bar enables for precise stirrup bar position modification for maximum rider comfort.

The exterior FlexiContourbloc(R) on the Bates Artiste Saddle is located high on the saddle and has a contoured, highly soft inner surface that gives the rider an unrivalled feeling of security and freedom, allowing the rider's legs to melt seamlessly into the bloc without feeling constricted.
The Bates Synergy Panel gives the horse complete freedom to perform to his full capacity. For the horse's comfort and full range of motion, it is the most shock-absorbent and protecting panel. The groundbreaking low-profile panel provides for an unrivalled seamless transfer from the rider to their horse, allowing for maximum connection.

The new S-buckle billet attachment has the smallest profile under the rider's legs and enables for quick billet changing.
The use of Y-girthing improves saddle stability.
Adjustability is possible with the Bates Elastiflex tree.
The Horse and Rider Technology (HART) of the Bates Artiste Saddle comprises the EASY-CHANGETM Standard Gullet System and EASY-CHANGETM Riser System. It comes with the Medium (black) EASY-CHANGE Gullet pre-installed; additional gullets are available for purchase separately. The CAIR(R) cushion system distributes weight and pressure from the rider fluidly.
