Every feature in the Bates Advanta Monoflap Eventing Saddle is engineered to give you a competitive advantage and to help you push your boundaries. Designed as the ultimate eventing saddle, the Advanta uses the SynergyPanel™ to create the perfect connection between you and your horse. The ultra-close contact feel and the effortless balance this saddle provides gets you poised for take-off and prepared for the unexpected.

Crafted in Bates’ premium quality Luxe Leather, this high-performance eventing saddle has incredible tactility and grip.  Features include:

  • A forward-cut monoflap design for an optimal sensitive feel of your horse. Streamlined, yet heavy-duty girth points run seamlessly through the monoflap. Ergonomic shaping of the stirrup bar and a channel for the stirrup leather ensures zero bulk under your leg. Everything works together to make the saddle disappear and bring your horse into focus.
  • An effortless SweetSpot in the ultimate jumping seat. This neutral position makes you prepared for anything, while it supports your perfect alignment with a seamless, ultra-narrow and close contact feel.
  • Ultra-close, low-profile SynergyPanels that provide the ultimate protective cushioning and the shock absorption of air. These panels reduce pressure on your horse’s back and allow improved blood flow to working back muscles. Designed for wither freedom, SynergyPanels ensure your horse has a natural and confident frame over jumps. You’ll experience your horse’s full power and agility thanks to his ability to enjoy a full range of movement.
  • Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar, which lets you customize the location of your stirrup bar for precision performance. The position of your stirrup bar has a profound impact on your natural alignment in the saddle. The unique shaping of this Bates stirrup bar reduces bulk under your leg.
  • Front and rear FlexiContourblocs with patented shaping to stabilize your leg without restriction.  Positioned on the forward-cut flap, the front FlexiContourbloc can be angled and moved forward or backward and secured to perfectly complement your position. The rear FlexiContourbloc can be moved higher or lower.

The Advanta Monoflap Event Saddle also offers the flexibility in horse fit of the EASY-CHANGE™ Fit Solution, which includes the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System and the EASY-CHANGE Riser System. Your event horse is an elite athlete. As muscles develop and change, your saddle can be customized for your horse’s comfort at all times. When your saddle is in balance, your horse is free to move naturally, recover quickly and maintain stamina and focus through the most demanding of courses. Gullet plates alter the saddle width; risers make adjustments within the saddle panel. This saddle comes with a medium gullet plate; other plates sold separately.

Care: Due to the more natural properties of Luxe Leather, this saddle may require additional dressing to prevent moisture loss and to protect the leather, particularly in high areas of wear. Treated in this manner, your new saddle will achieve the traditional, rich patina of aged, worked leather and you can expect years of excellent service from your saddle.

How to Clean Your Leather Saddle
Care for your saddle properly to ensure it can provide years of service.

After every ride, wipe perspiration and footing dust from your saddle with a barely moistened rag. Pay particular attention to removing grime from the billet straps. These critically important straps are the most likely area of your saddle to wear first as they are exposed to horse sweat and are always placed under great pressure during use. They may require more frequent conditioning than other parts of your saddle.

Once weekly, clean and condition all leather surfaces of your saddle using either the traditional glycerin soap method or a specially formulated leather cleanser. The economical glycerin soap method of cleaning involves wiping your saddle with a moistened sponge to remove dust and dirt. Rub hard to remove grime. When the leather feels smooth and clean, rub a nearly dry sponge or rag against the glycerin soap bar. Apply a thin layer of glycerin soap (no suds during this step) to your leather to seal its pores and keep it soft, but not sticky.

Newer methods of cleaning your saddle involve convenient and easy-to-use tack cleaning and conditioning products; follow the manufacturers' label instructions on any product you choose. Almost every tack manufacturer has a recommendation or product preference for cleaning and conditioning its saddles, and some manufacturers produce their own. Additionally, some suede, buffalo or patent leather may require special care according to the saddle maker. Always follow saddle manufacturer's guidelines when considering commercial leather cleaners and conditioners.

One-step leather cleaners also condition your leather as you wipe away grime. Two-step cleaners usually advise following cleansing with a conditioner that will soften and protect the leather.
