Bates Elevation+ Jumping Saddle
The Bates Elevation Saddle collection, designed for precision performance, combines technological design and innovation to raise the bar for horse and rider. You'll feel the power of ingenuity as you experience instant comfort, security, and balance, ensuring the most comfortable saddle possible.
Jumping saddles are designed to move the rider forwards in the saddle so that they are over the horse's centre of balance when it jumps. The horse will be able to jump more easily as a result of this. The saddle has a flatter seat than a dressage saddle to help alter the rider's position. More padding on the flaps of a jumping saddle will support the rider and provide protection and security for their lower legs during a leap.
Achieve unprecedented close contact, perfect balance and stability. Featuring an anatomic tree that reduces any inclination for the saddle to lift, the Elevation+ offers a completely customisable fit and the leading panel system for unparalleled impact absorption and comfort. This high performance model features double-lined Opulence leather, renowned for its ultra soft and grippy characteristics. Includes rear Flexibloc.
Available in the Deep Seat model
Precision performance offering greater security and support for increased confidence.
Precision custom fit
…EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution
Together the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System and the EASY-CHANGE Riser System offer a total fitting solution for your horse’s absolute comfort and your peace of mind.
All adjustments are measurable, symmetrical and completely reversible, ensuring total confidence in your ability to custom fit your saddle to your horse’s changing shape for optimal comfort and performance.
…CAIR Cushion System
The revolutionary CAIR Cushion System replaces the traditional fillings in your saddle panel with air. There are two independently sealed air Cushions within each saddle panel. The concept of air, as the ultimate in cushioning for your horse, is simple. Air being a fluid medium will constantly adapt to the horse’s working muscles. This means that your weight will be distributed evenly across the entire length of the cushion, virtually eliminating pressure points.
This extraordinary comfort results in freer movement, better carriage, and a happier horse.
For such a simple concept the dramatic difference the CAIR Cushion System makes to your horse’s comfort and performance is profound.
Supported by an EASY-CHANGE Gullet, the Elastiflex Tree features a rigid head to maintain clearance over your horse’s wither, while possessing lateral flexion to work with your horse’s muscular movement with every stride. Precision engineered to be lightweight, symmetrical and ultra durable the Elastiflex Tree is guaranteed against breakage for the lifetime of your saddle (under normal riding conditions), deemed to be 10 years.
…Performance panel technology
- a generous panel, designed to ensure a large footprint on your horse’s back, maximising the weight bearing surface of the saddle and resulting in a reduction in pressure and increased comfort for your horse.
