The Bates All Purpose range includes the first truly high performance general purpose saddles in the world, featuring cutting edge design, comfort and technology never previously seen in general purpose saddles.
Riders will experience the power of innovation with instantaneous comfort, security and balance, with a comfortable seat with a lower and squarer cantle (SC) that is particularly suited for leisure riding that involves more jumping.
The saddle offers luxurious comfort for your horse with a broad bearing area that achieves a large footprint on your horse’s back.
The wide and even chamber through the length of saddle enables generous clearance of your horse’s spine.
The saddle is designed with an open seat and with square cantle for a comfortable position while jumping. In addition a narrow waist provides closer contact, enabling you to sit into the saddle rather than on the saddle.
The Ergonomic stirrup bar enables the roller of the tongue on the buckle to be recessed into the bar and sit flush, which significantly reduces the bulk under the rider’s leg.
The point and balance strap girthing system achieves greater strength and durability and improves the distribution of pull from the front and back of the saddle to increase comfort and saddle stability.
Your horse will show a marked improvement in their freedom of movement, as world leading performance systems – the EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution and CAIR Cushion System maximise your horse’s comfort and freedom of movement. Your horse will enjoy unsurpassed adaptability for an optimal fit, even weight distribution, a fluid cushioning and the ultimate impact absorption for total comfort.
