The Bates Close Contact Saddle-Long Flap is designed for today's serious riders who know that good saddle design supports their horse's performance. With its balanced and comfortable seat, this jumping saddle features the CAIR® Panel System for the horse's comfort. The EASY-CHANGE™ Gullet System and EASY-CHANGE™ Riser System allow the fit to be modified for the horse as it changes and develops. Includes a medium gullet; other size gullets sold separately.

CAIR panels use air cushion technology to distribute the rider's weight comfortably and cushion the horse's back. Air offers shock absorption and works with the horse's muscles to ensure a close, even contact over a large weight-bearing area while reducing pressure points.

The EASY-CHANGE™ Gullet System lets you select-and change-the optimal tree width for your horse's current shape and muscling. The EASY-CHANGE™ Riser System allows you to make minor adjustments within the saddle panels for optimal balance and clearance.
