Bates All Purpose Saddle CAIR RearV Heritage 001


Bates All Purpose Saddle

Bates brings you the world’s first high performance general purpose saddle, bringing you superior design and unmatched technology that is sure to bring comfort to you and your horse. Starting with the deeper seat for a more secure and confident feel as well as a narrower waist so that you get the desired comfort of riding “in” the saddle and not on it.

RearV stands for “rear velcro” which means this saddle has the ability to use Rear Flexiblocs (purchased separately) should the rider wish.

The Ergonomic Stirrup Bar is designed to have the adjustable roller on the tongue fit snugly inside which significantly reduces the amount of bulk under your leg for an even closer feel to the horse.

Your horse will notice the difference in this saddle and have access to more freedom of movement thanks to the EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution and CAIR Cushion System. Enjoy comfort the right way with the Bates All Purpose Saddle!

My new saddle fits the saddle pad under it nicely. It appears that my horse is content with the comfort. I’m glad I bought this, then.
