We love the Bates Advanta CAIR Saddle for the ability it gives the rider to feel your horse. With this saddle, you will experience perfect connection while staying seated close to the action.
For the serious eventer, the new Bates ADVANTA delivers an ultra-sensitive feel between you and your horse, as the saddle disappears, bringing your horse into close focus. Sharpen your reflexes, as patented FlexiContourbloc technology works with a SweetSpot in the ultimate jump seat for effortless rider balance, so you are poised for take-off and prepared for the unexpected. A forward-cut, mono flap enables unrivalled connection with you and your horse and the Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar allows you to customize your position for perfect natural alignment.
