Heritage leather is a smooth leather offering a waxy feel. The high oil and wax content of this performance leather ensures optimum suppleness and enhanced rider grip. 

Opulence leather is a soft milled, full grain leather. This leather is ultra soft, and offers the rider immediate comfort. Opulence saddles also come with wear patches on the bottom of the flap to help prevent wear. 

Luxe leather is a premium luxury calf skin leather, which is soft to touch, and grippy to ride in. Luxe leather saddles also come with wear patches on the bottom of the flap to help prevent wear. 

When purchasing a Bates saddle it is vital that you have the neccessary extras to enable you to achieve the perfect fit with your horse. 

When purchasing an adjustable gullet saddle, we recommend taking 2 spare gullet bar widths to make any necessary alterations to the saddle during your trial, and as the horse changes shape throughout the year aswell as the relevant Easy Change Riser Pack to make any neccessary adjustments to the panels. Speak to our experts if you are unsure on what extras you need to accompany your saddle. 

For total peace of mind, every saddle from The Saddle Bank comes with a 5 day UK Mainland trial, inspection report and the 9 month buy back service (UK Mainland only).
