Product Description

The Bates All Purpose SC Saddle now in heritage leather delivers instantaneous comfort, security and balance. This saddle features a square cantle and a forward cut flap that is particularly suited for leisure riding involving more jumping. The wide and even chamber through the length of saddle enables generous clearance of your horse’s spine and the open seat, with a square cantle creates a comfortable position while jumping.

A narrow waist provides closer contact, so you sit into the saddle rather than on the saddle. The ergonomic stirrup bar enables the roller of the tongue on the buckle to be recessed into the bar and sit flush, which significantly reduces the bulk under your leg, by at least one thickness of leather. The point and balance strap girthing system achieves greater strength and durability and improves the distribution of pull from the front and back of the saddle to increase comfort and saddle stability.

Your horse will show a marked improvement in their freedom of movement, as world leading performance systems the Easy Change Fit Solution and Cair Cushion System maximise your horse’s comfort and freedom of movement. Your horse will enjoy unsurpassed adaptability for an optimal fit, even weight distribution and fluid cushioning for their total comfort.

Heritage Leather

Heritage leather upholds the traditional European practices of natural oil and wax tannage. The high oil and wax content of this performance leather ensures optimum suppleness and enhanced rider grip.

Characteristic of the finest natural leather, the leather is heavily pre-oiled with visible shade variations, often being referred to as a ‘pull up’ leather with a traditional, if not distressed aesthetic. The depth of colour is dependent on the infused oil content within the fibres of each particular hide. The distinctive tones of colour are particularly visible when the leather is bent as the colour lightens returning over time to its original colour as the oils migrate back through into the fibres.

Caring for Heritage Leather

The natural surface of the leather is more easily prone to scratch or marks however this can easily be removed by simply rubbing or buffing the leather in the area to draw the oils back to the area replenishing the surface.

Due to the high level of oils within the leather the correct level of care is still important to ensure the surface is protected against wear, water and sweat. In high wear areas the leather will darken over time ensuring an aged rich patina.

Caring for your Bates saddle

Leather is a natural product and as such any marks, scars or colour variations within the leather are not a fault and add to the individual character of your Bates saddle.

Proper care is crucial to maximising the performance of your Bates saddle as its life is reliant on maintaining a certain level of moisture in the leather. Your saddle should be regularly cleaned, using glycerin saddle soap and a damp cloth or sponge to remove dirt, which may otherwise scratch the surface. Cleaning should always be followed with a rich, wax-based dressing, such as Bates Leather Balsam. We do not recommend the use of oil on your saddle.

PRIOR to riding in your new saddle, it is recommended that you liberally dress your saddle with Bates Leather Balsam, allowing it to soak in overnight. The overnight process ensures maximum
penetration into the leather, helping to seal in the moisture and protect your saddle. Bates Leather Cream can also be used to replenish and rejuvenate the moisture content in your saddle,
however a leather balsam penetrates deeper into the leather and offers a surface barrier, protecting against wear, water and sweat.

Apply your leather balsam or cream heavily in high wear areas, such as the top of the saddle flap where the stirrup leathers will rub. You may apply your dressing to all areas of your saddle including the padded inserts and girth straps. Treated in this manner, you will achieve the traditional, rich patina of aged worked leather and can expect years of excellent service from your saddle.
