Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Purchased my Bates Momentum off the internet for $1500. I was looking for a nice eventing saddle, with the tree flexibility that allowed purchase from the internet to make sense.

Likes: Well made. Soft leather seat. Reasonable balance. adjustable knee blocks are great.

Dislikes: I have been riding in a passier mono-flap and it has taken some adjustment to the Bates dual flap. I think it would be great if they introduced a mono-flap saddle.

Quality: overall great quality and finishing work.

Summary: This is a nice, quality saddle that does its job. I prefer the mono-flap style saddle, but aside from not being mono-flap, I have no real issues. i do 3 day eventing, and this addle works well for the novice/training level of competitioin.
