I believe they developed an exceptional saddle. My foremost thought is for the horses and to have a saddle to sit optimally, with as little a burden for the horses is perfect. The deep seat in the Bates Isabell Saddle is unique, positioning you in a central and balanced position that ensures correct alignment is effortless. I think the Bates Isabell Saddle provides good connection with horse through a seamless, ultra narrow transition from seat through the length of tour leg.
I think that if you plan to buy it, you make a very good choice, I am very happy!
