Bates event sad­dle

Your Horse (UK) - - Contents -

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.

Im­proved com­mu­ni­ca­tion

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
