What our fitters think: “One of my favourite Bates saddle models is the Caprilli jump. The Adjustability and luxury style of this saddle with also the flap cut options (standard and forward cut) make this saddle such a fantastic saddle for the price. Its perfectly multi-purpose ideal for flatwork riding, jumping, cross country/eventing, dressage and still looks like a technical saddle.” - Sarah Parry
