The Bates Elevation DS+ Saddle provides a supportive deeper seat (DS) for greater security and achieves unprecedented close contact, perfect balance and stability for the rider. The seat is shaped to maintain breadth behind you ensuring comfortable landings, while thinning down where your leg drops on to the horse, so that the transition is ultra- narrow and seamless.
This high performance model features the added performance advantage of Bates Luxe leather, renowned for its ultra-soft and grippy characteristics, increasing rider feel and comfort. Luxe Leather is hand-selected from the finest calf-skin leather in the world and meticulously cared for throughout its specialised tanning process. This will guarantee exceptional performance in strength, richness of colour, ultra-soft feel and level of grip to meet the unique demands of an equestrian saddle.
Leather is a natural product and as such any marks, scars or colour variations within the Luxe Leather are not a fault and add to the individual character of your new Bates Luxe Leather saddle. Your new saddle will feel exceptionally grippy, luxurious and succulent from day one, providing you with the ultimate in comfort and prestige.
An anatomically shaped tree enables greater comfort and room for your horse’s shoulder, while retaining a close contact feel for the rider. It reduces the occurrence of lifting at the back, which is often accepted with jumping saddles.
