Bates event saddle
For many riders, nothing can beat the thrill of galloping crosscountry and negotiating fixed fences. However, finding a saddle that’s forward cut enough, comfortable, supportive and allows freedom of movement can be a challenge. in the world of eventing saddles, there’s a new kid on the block that addresses these issues. The Bates advanta eventing saddle has been three years in development and is engineered for a perfect connection between you and your horse. as well as stunning good looks, this leather saddle provides an ultra-sensitive feel for you and your horse. its design makes staying in balance as you gallop across country and tackle those fences effortless. also, by being in the optimum position you’ll be prepared for the unexpected, which is inevitable when you’re riding cross-country. no saddle will stop you falling off, but if you can maintain a balanced position, you’re more likely to stay put when the going gets tough. as you’d expect from Bates, ensuring the best possible fit is top of the list for both you and your horse. The advanta eventing saddle comes with its easy-Change Fit solution, which means your saddle can be customised to your horse’s shape quickly and easily. There are a number of other key features that make the Advanta eventing saddle stand out from the competition:
It’s perfectly positioned
The design and shape of the seat puts you in a neutral position and in correct alignment so you’re ideally positioned for take-off. The FlexContourbloc is a unique shape that stabilises without restriction, improving balance for you and your horse, not least when the unexpected happens. The front and back blocks can be moved to perfectly complement your position.
The single flap design gives an ultrasensitive connection with your horse, while streamlined girth points and shaped stirrup bars ensure zero bulk under your leg. all these bring you closer to your horse, so you can work together as a team.
Comfort for your horse
The unique synergy-Panel provides a stable and close fit combined with protective cushioning. The shock absorption properties of the Cair Cushion system (air-filled panels) results in reduced pressure for your horse and improved blood flow to his muscles. Combine these elements together and your horse will be able to move as naturally as possible and use himself to the max over a jump — brilliant! The Bates Advanta is available in classic black, classic brown and havana brown/ black. RRP £2,699
