Horse Tack Review


Bates
Caprilli
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Bates
Model: Caprilli
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from usedsaddles.com for $700 because I needed a saddle that would fit all of my horses.

Likes: I love it. The cair panels are extraordinary! It allows the saddle to move with the horse and distributes the riders weight evenly to avoid pressure points. The interchangeable gullet allows for the best fit. My horse works better in this saddle than in any other. He used to crash through jumps and can now clear 3 ft easily. The leather is buttery soft and the saddle conforms to me. I will never buy another saddle again!

Dislikes: The color changes with oil, I have the caramel one and it is now a rich reddish/burgundy color.

Quality: Quality is amazing and construction is great. the interchangeable gullet is great but I wouldn't recommend changing it often.

Summary: LOVE IT! Worth twice that much
