Ultra-sensitive connection. The streamlined, yet heavy-duty girth points that run seamlessly through the mono flap, ergonomic shaping of the stirrup bar and channel for your stirrup leathers ensure zero bulk under your leg. Everything works together to make the saddle disappear and bring your horse into focus.
The patented shaping of the FlexiContourbloc® stabilises without restriction for a stillness in the saddle that has
a radical impact on balance for you and your horse, not least when the unexpected happens.
Positioned on a forward cut flap, the front FlexiContourbloc® can be angled and moved moved forwards, or backwards and secured to perfectly complement your position. The rear FlexiContourbloc® can be lifted higher, or lowered accordingly.
EASY-CHANGE® Fit Solution
Your event horse is an elite athlete. Whatever their muscling during their work program, after travelling and over the season, your saddle can be customised for your horse’s comfort at all times.
When your saddle is in balance, your horse is comfortable, free to move naturally, recover quickly and maintain stamina and focus through the most demanding of courses.
Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar
The position of your stirrup bar has a profound impact on your natural alignment in the saddle. Unique shaping reduces any bulk under your leg.
Customise the location of your stirrup bar for precision performance.
Simply the perfect riding surface with its luxurious and tactile grip. When it comes to leather there isn’t any finer!
Complement your saddle with elegant, high quality Bates Stirrup Leathers in Luxe Leather. The riveted buckle design reduces the thickness of the leather under your leg and the webbing core ensures the leathers will not stretch and cause unevenness.
