The Bates Elevation® Deep Seat+ Saddle is designed to help you jump bigger fences. The narrow twist and deep seat support your ride, while double-lined Opulence leather provides plenty of grip. Large molded knee inserts help hold your leg in place; an adjustable rear Flexibloc allows you to customize support.

The Ergonomic Stirrup Bar combined with the recessed stirrup channel support your optimal leg positioning while reducing bulk to create a close contact feel.  Use a Phillips screwdriver #3 to adjust the tree of the saddle. 

Built on the Elastiflex tree, the Elevation Deep Seat boasts generous CAIR® panels and drop, quilted panel points. This system offers great support for the horse’s working muscles and promotes freedom of movement. The QUICK-CHANGE Girth Point System offers versatility for the life of the saddle. Fit may be perfected with the EASY-CHANGE™ Gullet and EASY-CHANGE™ Riser Systems.

Description of features:

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

CAIR Cushion system replaces traditional saddle panel fillings with air cushions. CAIR technology provides significant performance advantages in the way it distributes the rider’s weight and cushions the horse’s back.

In distributing the rider’s weight, air cushions continually mold to mirror the 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 the horse’s back, the dynamic nature of the air ensures it works in synergy with the horse’s muscles, rather than the 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.

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 rider peace of mind.

Select the optimal gullet width in the EASY-CHANGE Gullet system for the 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 the horse’s changing shape for optimal comfort and performance.

QUICK-CHANGE Girth Points in Bates saddles offer the rider peace of mind that the 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.
