My mom told me after the auction in May then we'll see but she likes the Bates. My old trainer's daugther has a Bates and she rides anything from Ponies to WB's to TB's.
My mare is narrow at the witers so im told. I can also test ride the Bates.

I have never ridden in either but I've heard good things about the Bates. If you can test ride it that's even better. But I honestly like the Wintec's a lot better because you can change gullet size and its synthetic and I feel like they hold up a lot nicer (CAIR panels = super comfey).

I'll take a Pessoa over a Bates any day. Most people that I know with the Bates have hated the CAIR panels.

I like the pessoa more than the bates for sure. Also, having owned and ridden in several of the bates/wintec models with the CAIR - i'd rather have wool flocking any day. Jmo.
