Engineered for competitive ADVANTAge
Thank you Flo@teamfloeventing, I couldn't have put it better myself!
“The best thing about the Bates Advanta saddle is that I feel so secure! Within 2 days of having the saddle I used it for a British Eventing horse trials and it was amazing. The leather is so soft it felt like it was made to measure. I’ve tried other close contact saddles but this felt like I had so much contact with my pony which made me feel so safe. I love the blocks being on top of the saddle as you don’t get a curved saddle flap. I’ve jumped higher than before just because I feel so secure! My pony moves more freely too, he feels more supple and less restricted. I knew straight away that it was the saddle for me”. Flo @teamfloeventing

The wide and even chamber through the length of saddle enables generous clearance of your horse’s spine. An open seat, with a square cantle for a comfortable position while jumping. A narrow waist provides closer contact, so you sit into the saddle rather than on the saddle. The Ergonomic stirrup bar enables the roller of the tongue on the buckle to be recessed into the bar and sit flush, which significantly reduces the bulk under your leg, by at least one thickness of leather.

I've recently had a few very successful fits with the Caprilli CC. The adjustability in the width and with the easy change risers allows us to refine the fit and make it perfect for the horse. Rider's have commented that they find the Cair System allows them a close feel to the horse. This, combined with the open seat and adjustable knee roll allows for free range of movement over fences and a good sense of security.
One customer in particular ordered this saddle in the Luxe leather in brown. It is beautiful. The Luxe leather is so lovely and grippy, it looks and feels like a high quality saddle. If you were thinking of getting a Caprilli, I'd really recommend looking at the Luxe leather option.
