Eventing New Zealand

"As an eventer, it’s so important to feel secure, yet unrestricted with the freedom to move in the saddle to adjust your position. My saddles of choice for show jumping and cross country, the Bates Caprilli Close Contact and the Bates Momentum, allow me to do just this while also providing my horse with the ability to freely move beneath the saddle with the fluid CAIR Cushion System. I find the same freedom of movement and comfort for both my horses and myself in the Bates Innova Saddles during the dressage phase as well as during flatwork schooling. Having ridden in Bates saddles since pony club I’ve always appreciated the ease of adjustment to enable my saddles to suit a variety of developing horse conformations – this is a real advantage as a professional rider schooling and competing with both young and advanced horses."
