We love the Bates Caprilli Close Contact Classic Saddle because Hunter Jumper competitors will enjoy the traditional styling and minimalist appearance in the Bates Caprilli Close Contact Classic. The supportive seat enables closer contact and balance in the saddle, while Luxe Leather offers extra grip for riders, whether at a high-level competition or just commencing their jumping career. Luxe Leather knee inserts also aid the rider’s leg stability, while broad and tapered panels offer tremendous support for their horse’s back, enabling greater freedom of movement.
Whether commencing their jumping career or competing at the highest level, riders will enjoy exceptional balance and comfort. Broad and tapered panels offer tremendous support for the horse’s back, enabling greater freedom of movement.
