Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: A generous friend let me ride her Bates Innova for about a month. I was not particularly looking for a saddle although loved it so much I bought one. I paid $3295(Australian).
Likes: From the first ride my horse moved brilliantly in this saddle. I have ridden in about 7 different saddles and none of them compared to the Innova. I also feel totally balanced and I am enjoying riding so much more. I have quite a few young horses so I decided to purchase the Innova with extended knee blocs and I have found that I stick to the saddle like glue when my horse/s spook.
Dislikes: Nothing. I love everything about this saddle.
Quality: The Bates Innova appears to be well made.
Summary: Overall the Bates Innova is a brilliant saddle. It allows free, unrestricted movement of the horse and allows the rider to sit effortlessly in a balanced position.
Usefulness Rating: 2.9 out of 5.
