“Its two things that sets the Bates brand apart from the crowd: the fitting options and the attention to detail. The options of fitting from the standard fit trees which can adjust from N-XW then also the WIDE fit trees offering XW-XXXXW blow my mind, they really do have a width for all horses! Then the details on the saddles even down to the stirrup keeper being a metal Bates logo and the cantle detail with the name plate, they just look luxury and make you want one which is then transferred to the customer.”
