Bates All Purpose SC Saddle

Now available in Heritage Leather

The Bates All Purpose SC Saddle delivers instantaneous comfort, security and balance. This saddle features a square cantle and a forward cut flap that is particularly suited for leisure riding involving more jumping. The wide and even chamber through the length of saddle enables generous clearance of your horse’s spine and the open seat, with a square cantle creates a comfortable position while jumping.

A narrow waist provides closer contact, so you 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 your leg, by at least one thickness of leather. 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 and fluid cushioning for their total comfort.
