The Bates All-Purpose Square Cantle (SC)+ Saddle in ultra-soft, grippy, double-lined leather offers comfort, grip and virtually effortless rider alignment. It features a low, square-shaped cantle and the option for you to use rear Flexiblocs, which are particularly suited for leisure riding that involves more jumping. You will experience the power of innovation with instantaneous comfort, security and balance.

The narrow twist and recessed stirrup channels create a close contact feel while molded knee inserts gently support your leg positioning. Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bars offers effortless rider alignment and gives you complete control over your preferred riding position. The Adjustable Flexibloc system enables you to customize the support offered for an individualized riding position; rear Velcro® fastenings enable the use of rear Flexiblocs for additional leg support.

Built on the Elastiflex tree with drop panel points, this saddle has short triple billets with a point and balance fitting option. Horse comfort and fit is supported by the world-leading performance systems: EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution and CAIR® panels.

Description of features:

Elastiflex Tree, supported by the EASY-CHANGE Gullet, has a rigid head to maintain clearance over your  horse’s withers. It also has lateral flexion to work with your horse’s muscular movements in every stride. Precision engineered to be lightweight, symmetrical and ultra-durable, this tree is guaranteed against breakage for 10 years under normal riding conditions.

EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution is comprised of the EASY-CHANGE Gullet system and the EASY-CHANGE Riser system. It offers a total saddle fitting solution for absolute horse comfort and your peace of mind.

Select the optimal gullet width in the EASY-CHANGE Gullet system for your horse’s current shape and muscling. Make adjustments within the saddle panels for optimal balance and clearance with the EASY-CHANGE Riser system. All adjustments are measurable, symmetrical and completely reversible, ensuring total confidence in the saddle’s ability to be custom fitted to your horse’s changing shape for optimal comfort and performance.

CAIR Cushion system replaces traditional saddle panel fillings with air cushion technology. It provides significant performance advantages in the way it distributes your weight and cushions your horse’s back. The air cushions fluidly mold to mirror your horse’s individual conformation and working muscles. They ensure a close, even contact over a much larger weight-bearing area and help eliminate instances of pressure points.

In cushioning your horse’s back, the dynamic nature of the air ensures it works in synergy with your horse’s muscles, rather than your horse’s muscles working against a static medium. Additionally, air provides the ultimate shock absorption, reducing instances of trauma to the horse’s muscles in work.

QUICK-CHANGE Girth Point system allows girth points can be fitted to factory standard throughout the life of the saddle. This girth system also allows customization by a saddler or saddle fitter. The unique design ensures the girth points are highly durable and ultra slim-profile, which supports a close contact feel and increased comfort for horse and rider.
