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.

The Bates All Purpose saddles feature all of the innovations and technology synonymous with high performance discipline saddles.

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. Your new saddle will feel exceptionally grippy, luxurious and succulent from day one, providing you with the ultimate in comfort and prestige.

Saddle FittingInformation

After your initialsaddle fit, we recommend that you have the fit of your saddle checked withinthe first three months, as it will settle in the head during the initial ridingperiod, as is standard with all new saddles. Following this initial settling inperiod, your saddle fit should then be assessed every six months throughoutyour saddle’s life to ensure the saddle continues to fit correctly, as yourhorse changes shape according to its age, level of fitness and work program. Itis always recommended that you seek ongoing professional advice on your horse’ssaddle fit, where possible. However the following information can assist you innot only assessing your horse’s saddle fit, but understanding when simpleadjustments should be made. 

In order to check theclearance, bearing and balance of a saddle, it is important that the saddle ispositioned correctly. All fitting adjustments and saddle alterations should bemade in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations. 

Ensure your horse isstanding square and is on level ground. Locate your horse’s shoulder and checkto see that the nail of the saddle is approximately three fingers distance fromthe edge of your horse’s shoulder.

 

Checking forsufficient clearance 

Sufficient clearanceof your horse’s wither, across the width and length of the spine, should bemaintained at all times. Check to see that the channel of the saddle is clearof your horse’s wither and spine through the length of the saddle. 

 

Checking for evenbearing 

Your saddle shouldbear evenly on your horse’s back, providing a close fit. Run your hand betweenyour horse and the panel of your saddle to check for even bearing. If yoursaddle features the CAIR Cushion System, it is important that a rider sits inthe saddle to check the bearing, as the air becomes dynamic under the rider’sweight.

 

Checking for abalanced seat

Check that thedeepest part of the saddle seat is central and level to ensure perfect saddlebalance. Should your saddle require further adjustments select the optimalcombination of EASY-CHANGE Risers to achieve sufficient clearance, even bearingand perfect balance.

NB. The innovativesystems in our saddles offer unsurpassed flexibility in achieving an optimalfit, however, no one saddle can claim to fit any horse. It is alwaysrecommended you seek ongoing professional advice on the fit and in meeting theunique needs of each horse/rider combination.
