The Bates All Purpose Wide Saddle has been specifically developed to address the increasing international demand for saddles to fit broader breeds of horses. Finely crafted using top quality materials, the Bates Wide All Purpose now also features the Easy Change Fit Solution so you can adjust the saddle to fit your broad horse even better.

For the rider: Bates has ensured a uniquely close contact and ultra comfortable seat with a well balanced position for a wide saddle.

For the horse: Bates has created a generous panel that incorporates the CAIR® Cushion System, along with an anatomically shaped broad and flat lateral flexion tree that follows the natural lines of the broader horse and a wider channel for greater comfort.

Features of the Bates Wide All Purpose include:

  • Pure aniline finished, top quality leather
  • Uniquely positioned ergonomic stirrup bars
  • Adjustable Y-Girthing System secures the front and back of the saddle
  • Fully adjustable FlexiBloc System; enables you to tailor your own knee support
  • Easy Change Gullet System provides custom fit for many different wide horses (ships with a 2X-WIDE gullet in the saddle) The Wide Gullet Kit contains all four wide sizes: 1XW, 2XW, 3XW and 4XW. Only gullet plates from the genuine Easy-changeTM Gullet System Wide are accredited for use in Bates Wide Saddles.
  • Easy Change Riser System allows you to balance the saddle
  • Elastiflex Tree designed to be rigid in the withers, while possessing lateral flex to work with the horse's muscular movement and comes with a Lifetime Guarantee
  • Panels are available in CAIR only. CAIR Panel System provides maximum comfort for your horse with a 5-Year Guarantee.

    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.
