Manufacturer: Bates Australia (View all products by Bates)

Model: Caprilli All Purpose (View all Caprilli All Purpose saddle reviews)

Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: at a local tack shop for around $1600

Likes: The leather darkened into a nice deep brown, and the adjustable knee roles were nice.

Dislikes: it was made more for dressage and did not give much support for jumping, the high cantle was easy to hit while jumping

Quality: very poor. after only 3 years of normal use and excellent care, the tree had broke above the stirrup bar, which is unacceptable for a 1600 dollar saddle. I expected much better quality from a well-known manufacturer such as bates, as this is unsafe and a waste of money.

Summary: Do not buy this saddle
