Eventing Australia

"Our whole team at Sandhills is extremely proud to be associated with Bates Saddles, as they offer the highest level of performance with the greatest comfort for our horses. For many years now I have been riding in the Bates Innova during the dressage phase and greatly enjoy the support of the Contourbloc. During the jumping phases I trust the Bates Elevation as it offers me close contact while I am able to maintain a balanced, stable seat. Throughout the demanding season, our eventers are constantly changing condition and having saddles that allow us to make ongoing changes is very important.The EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution allows adjustments required to be made with ease and the addition of the CAIR Cushion System System gives us confidence that our horses are performing at the highest level with the greatest comfort."
