Next Generation Deep Seat
Jumping Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Bates
Model: Next Generation Deep Seat
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: Got it from $1995 USD new. Old saddle didn't feet me properly and my coach recommended the Bates

Likes: The saddle fits me perfectly, and because of the interchangeable gullet system, it fits every horse i ride as well. The medium-wide gullet is the one i use the most, and it fits 16.2hh - 17.2hh warmbloods fine, and it fits my 18hh high withered warmblood with a fleeceworks halfpad. The leather quality is great, and it feels broken in the first time you ride in it. I have the deep seat model, so it is a very secure feeling saddle. Great support over fences, and it places your leg in exactly the right place when on the flat.

Dislikes: The first time i tried changing the gullet was when the saddle wasn't get totally broken in.I had to fight with it for a while and it was super hard to figure out how to do it, but after you figured it out it was fine. The old Bates saddles are very different from the new ones when it comes to changing the gullet. The CAIR panels in the saddle are kind of like a tire. They lose air when its cold so it doesn't exactly fit to your horse. I got the CAIR panels taken out about a month after i got the saddle and had it switched to wool.

Quality: Construction is great, the billets are still very stiff even though i've owned the saddle now for about 5 months and they run a little short. Otherwise, awesome saddle

Summary: Definitely a great saddle to get if you are on a budget of about $2000 and have several different shapes and sizes of horses to ride. The color is gorgeous and easy to match and the saddle looks good on and off the horse. Great buy, i couldn't be happier with it!
