Horse Tack Review


Bates
Close Contact Flat Seat
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Bates
Model: Close Contact Flat Seat
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Acquired from a tack store in England for approximately $1300 USD before Bates' and Wintec's prices went up. Needed adjustable tree for my horse, but wanted a flat seat for eventing.

Likes: GREAT quality. Very comfortable flat seat which doesn't interfere with my position and lets me stay back for drop jumps. Adjustable knee blocks. Adjustable gullet to fit a variety of horses.

Dislikes: Flat seat model not available in the United States! I am trying to find one for a student, and now they are not even available in England where I got mine, only in New Zealand/Australia!

Quality: Excellent quality, lovely leather, soft leather in seat and knee rolls. Great value for the price.... my next choice was a $3000 custom.

Summary: I adore this saddle, and highly recommend it for anyone who wants a flat seat close contact for under $2000.
