The Bates Wide All-Purpose Saddle has a high performance seat that delivers a level of comfort and contact that’s unprecedented in a wide saddle. A deep seat and ultra-narrow twist lets you sit deeply into the saddle in a well-balanced and central position. This saddle is made of Heritage Leather, which is traditionally tanned in natural oil and wax, and offers a desirable rich patina characteristic of the finest natural leather. The high oil and wax content of this performance leather enhances your grip with optimal suppleness and a fully natural surface.

Optimal saddle stability is ensured with the adjustable Y-girthing system, which provides even distribution of pull from both the front and rear of the saddle. (It’s absolutely critical that you adjust this system equally on both sides of the saddle.) The generously sized CAIR® Cushion panels create an exceptionally large footprint on your horse’s back to maximize the weight bearing area for your horse’s maximum comfort and performance. CAIR® panels use air cushion technology to distribute pressure and absorb shock. As your weight bears down on the saddle, air in the panels moves fluidly to hug your horse and distribute your weight evenly.

Perfect for leisure riding, flatwork and some jumping, the Bates Wide All-Purpose Saddle features the EASY-CHANGE® Gullet System WIDE. This system offers the choice of four interchangeable wide gullet plates. It also works with the EASY-CHANGE® Riser System, which allows you to make minor adjustments in the way panels sit on your horse’s back.  Use a Phillips screwdriver #3 to adjust the tree of the saddle.
