The Bates Innova with EXTENDED Contourbloc features a deep, yet surprisingly open seat that works in partnership with the revolutionary Contourbloc, which is anatomically contoured to your leg.
The Contourbloc offers unprecedented security, as your leg rides in and behind the bloc, eliminating any lifting of the leg without any restriction. The unique tree is sculpted to be wafer thin in the waist, eliminating potential interference. The seamless transition from your seat through the length of your leg results from the interface of the panel and saddle flaps. You will feel your leg drops straight on to the horse with no interruption.
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 offer the greatest flexibility in achieving a customised fit and fluid cushioning ensuring your horse’s absolute comfort and your peace of mind.
