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 Bates Caprilli Close Contact saddle offers a supportive seat for the rider to ensure safe, comfortable landings.

Whether commencing your jumping career or competing at the highest level, enjoy exceptional balance and comfort. Broad and tapered panels offer tremendous support for the horse’s back, enabling greater freedom of movement.

Expert's view

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.

Would you recommend this saddle for horses with a flat back?

Yes, this saddle can be a brilliant choice for horses with a flatter back but they suit a wide range of back shapes. The changeable gullet plate and Easy Change riser system in the saddle means they can be quickly adjusted to suit a variety of different shaped horses, and keep being changed to your horses shape as it changes with the seasons. The shape of the front of the panel also makes this a good choice for horses with bigger shoulders as it's design sits the saddle behind the shoulder allowing free movement for the horse.

Expert's view

They are fantastic design for the wider natives & to be honest there is no saddle on the market that I would choose over one of these, they are so comfortable & put you in the correct position and give you the comfort and support you need to do schooling and hacking. 

I then decided to purchase another one for another home bred black welsh section d stallion we have and again we love it, I hope to be out competing in it this season. 

I can’t recommend these saddles enough for anyone losing the will to live thinking they can’t have a dressage saddle for there native because nothing is wide enough they need to try the Bates Wide Dressage!

Joining forces with elite showjumpers, Bates Saddles pioneered the world’s first truly close contact jump saddle that is focused on both horse and rider performance.

This saddle achieves unprecedented close contact, perfect balance and stability for the rider. For the horse, it features an anatomic tree that reduces any inclination for the saddle to lift, offers a completely customisable fit and the leading panel system for unparalleled impact absorption and comfort.

This high performance model features the added performance advantage of double-lined Opulence leather, renowned for its ultra soft and grippy characteristics, increasing rider feel and comfort.

Engineered for precision performance, combining technical design and innovation to raise the bar for both horse and rider.

Features of the Bates Elevation

High performance seat is shaped to maintain breadth behind your seat ensuring comfortable landings, whilst thinning it right down where your leg drops on to the horse, so that the transition is ultra narrow and seamless. The precise cantle angle encourages you to find your central position with ease.

An anatomically shaped tree enables greater comfort and room for the horse’s shoulder, while retaining a close contact feel for the rider. It reduces the occurrence of lifting at the back, which is often accepted with jumping saddles.

Secure your stirrup leathers with the distinctive Bates Stirrup Keeper. Why not add a sense of style, colour and individuality to your saddle with the interchangeable Bates Jewelled Stirrup Keepers? Each stirrup keeper features three stones and are available in Clear.

Customised support of your individual position through the Adjustable Flexibloc System

Colour Options: Classic Black or Classic Brown

The deep seat in the Isabell Saddle is unique, positioning the rider in a central and balanced position that ensures correct rider alignment is effortless.

The saddle provides the ultimate connection with the horse through a seamless, ultra narrow transition from the rider’s seat through the length of their leg. The saddle offers tremendous support for the dressage horse, through the anatomic shaping of the tree, generous panel design and world leading performance systems, including the CAIR® Cushion System, resulting in unprecedented comfort and complete freedom of movement.

Features of the Bates Isabell

Anatomically shaped seat eatures an extremely narrow waist, eliminating any interference and sitting the rider closer to the horse. An extra deep seat gives the feeling of sitting ‘into’ the saddle, rather than ‘on’ the saddle and positions the rider directly over the horse’s centre of balance.

Seamless transition from your seat through the length of your leg results from the interface of the panel and saddle flaps. You will feel your leg drops straight on to the horse with no interruption.

Comfort seat technology utilises multilayered seat foams of varying densities to create the perfect balance of luxurious comfort, whilst maintaining a good feel of the horse.  Rider comfort is paramount for meeting the high demands of serious dressage training and competition.

High performance panel features the CAIR® Cushion System for dynamic cushioning of your horse’s working muscles, eliminating pressure points and evenly distributing your weight over the full bearing surface of the saddle. Even weight distribution promotes blood flow through to the muscles for greater development and increased performance.

Customised support of your individual position through the Adjustable Flexibloc System.

Effortless horse and rider alignment  is achieved through altering the positioning of the Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar, enabling the rider control over their preferred riding position.

Maximised stability and comfort for your horse is achieved through the Adjustable Y-Girthing System that offers the ability to achieve even pull from the front and rear of the saddle. It is critical that this system be adjusted evenly on both sides of the saddle, there are markers sewn on to the Velcro to enable you to assess this more easily.
