Showjumping Australia

Showjumping is about balance and control to utilize power; all done by feel, while making split second decisions looking ahead. Saddle selection is crucial. The Victrix creates confidence because it allows excellent balance and the Luxe Leather gives a superb close feel of my horse. I’ve competed in Bates saddles for over 35 years and like our sport they just keep getting better!
