Bates Caprilli Close Contact Classic Saddle is rated
Rated 5 out of
My barn is filled with Bates saddles and I had purchased a used one years ago that I loved. I finally decided to buy myself a brand new saddle and I am so happy that I purchased this one. It arrived with a purple Bates saddle cover along with a container of their Bates Leather Balsam (which I have used on the saddle and it looks great). I use it on my stockier 15hh Morgan mare. The medium gullet that comes with the saddle was too narrow, so we switched it to the wide gullet instead and it fits really well. The process of switching the gullets out was very simple, I followed a YouTube tutorial. This saddle is so comfortable and doesn't push me forward like other saddles can for me. I use the Effax Leather Cream Soap to clean it which works well. I use the Bates Stirrup Leathers with Heritage Leather which match the leather to this saddle perfectly.
