The Bates All Purpose Saddle is the first truly high performance, general purpose saddle in the world, featuring cutting edge design and technology never previously seen in general purpose saddles. The Bates All Purpose Saddle has a deeper seat for added security and greater confidence, 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 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. Experience the power of innovation with instantaneous comfort, security and balance, ensuring the most luxurious seat for leisure riding, flatwork and some jumping.
