  • Easy Change Riser System allows you to place special inserts front, rear or center to balance the saddle (inserts sold separately)
  • Elastiflex tree is rigid at the wither while the rest remains flexible to facilitate excellent communication. Lifetime guarantee (10 years)
  • The Easy Change Fit Solution is the first total saddle fitting solution that not only enables full adjustment to be made to the saddle, but empowers riders to custom fit their saddles in a matter of minutes. Riders can select the optimal tree width for their horse's current shape using the Easy Change Gullet System or make adjustments within their saddle panel for optimal balance and clearance with the Easy Change Riser System. Together these systems offer unparalleled scope of adjustment for a total fitting solution that's not only easy, but measurable and completely reversible. Whether you are a serious competitor or simply ride horses for the joy of it, choosing a saddle with the Easy Change Fit Solution puts your horse's comfort first.

    Bates All Purpose with CAIRReview by Elayna from Cedar City
    I bought the havana colored Bates All Purpose Saddle with CAIR, adjustable gullet system, and riser insert system. I live hundreds of miles from the nearest saddle fitter, so I needed a saddle I could adjust myself. I have ridden in it for about 2 months, almost daily. I use the saddle mostly for trail riding and jumping.
    The seat leather and knee pads are super softly padded and grippy. The seat and twist are wide. The seat is deep and the knee pads are large. The "flexibloc" knee pads are hook and loop attached. They are slightly adjustable, more vertically than horizontally. This saddle very generously sized. I normally take a 17" but I ordered the 16.5 and it is plenty roomy for me.
    I love the 3 point girthing which give me more options.
    The panels are soft, and my sensitive horse seems to like it.
    One of the pommel nails popped off shortly after purchase, but the manufacturer was quick to send me a replacement.
    I think is is a very good saddle for this price point.
