    Bates All Purpose SC Saddle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and adjustable I have had this saddle for over 5 years now and plan on keeping it forever! I use it for my Morgan who I compete in the Morgan Hunter Pleasure divisions with. I love that this saddle is also suitable for jumping, so I don’t need a different one when my horse has the winter off from training and we get to jump for fun and give his brain something new to focus on. The best part of this saddle is the fact that you can adjust the tree on it! Two years ago when my horse was 5 and still growing, my saddle was too wide for my horse when the saddle fitter came out. She was able to change the gullet on it to make it more narrow and fit him properly. Because my horse was young and still experiencing changes to his body, the next year when I had the saddle-fitter come out, the saddle was too narrow so we were able to change it back to the wider gullet. Instead of having to buy different saddles to accommodate my horse's changing body, I was able to just adjust the gullets and ride on without any interruption! I also love that this saddle has the CAIR Cushion System, it makes me feel better as a horse mom knowing that this saddle has excellent shock absorption and weight distribution so that my horse's back isn't affected during our rides. I use MOSS Goats Milk Saddle Soap to clean it and Belvoir Leather Balsam Intensive Conditioner for conditioner and the saddle looks as good as new. If comfort for both horse and rider, as well as adjustability, are top in your criteria for a new saddle, I highly recommend the Bates All Purpose SC Saddle.
