June 2020 Member Competition



Presenting the Bates Artiste  and Win a Bates Saddle of your choice!



Be as one… the secret to ignite your dressage performance.

Everyone needs an Artiste in their life – and we are so excited to be presenting the Bates Artiste, the as-yet unreleased monoflap offering from the Bates stable of unparalleled prestige. 

Victrix, Innova, Caprilli… Bates has been synonymous with excellent saddles since 1934.  Combining heritage and technology, Bates comes up with the goods time after time, for ergonomics, comfort and quality.  From tiny details to tuck away your straps and flaps, to the incredible, game-changing CAIR system, Bates has always been at the forefront of equine comfort and performance under saddle. 



In anticipation of the exciting release in September of the Bates Artiste (above), we are able to give away to one AMAZINGLY lucky 5* member one Bates saddle OF YOUR CHOICE (but you may have to wait a little while for delivery of the Artiste)

With the Artiste, you will discover the artistry in bold innovations that are surprisingly about the subtlety in riding.  The Artiste is designed to give a position so natural and a connection so sensitive the saddle all but disappears and your performance is amplified.

With some massive names in our sport using this incredible brand on their top horses and Olympic rides, we see Bates saddles in action with riders such as Craig Barrett, Domenique Carson and Sarah Bullimore. 

So… which one will you choose?  The sleek and stylish Innova, retailing at over $4,500 AUD, or did you miss our competition last year, with the crisp and colourful jumping Victrix (see below), worth over $5,000…

Get your entries in, 5* members!!! And make sure to tell us which saddle model you would prefer and why, for the best chance to win
