Manufacturer: Bates (View all products by Bates)

Model: Caprilli AP/ Vintage (View all Caprilli AP/ Vintage reviews)

Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle used in 1990 for $500. I had tried several AP saddles but never felt secure in the saddle while trail riding rough terrain, or jumping, and horse shows. Once I sat in this saddle I knew this was the one! I have used it on all my horses no problem. Currently being used on a 15'1 Arabian for endurance, never a sore back. I really love this saddle. I hope Bates still makes them like this as I want another one!! :>)

Likes: Perfect rider placement, legs are where they need to be.

Dislikes: Nothing

Quality: Very well made have over 2,000 competition miles and many times more in training in it. Very deep secure seat, comfortable.

Summary: I recommend this saddle to anyone who shows, does cross country, or is a trail rider
