NEW Bates Elevation Saddle, 17.5

I have a brand new 17.5 Bates Elevation (the new model with the metal stirrup leather keepers, Next Generation?). Has all of the tags still attached. Came straight to my house from the factory so its never even seen a horses back. Absolutely beautiful. Comes with blue fleece cover. Asking $1300.

I wish I had known. I JUST bought a saddle on Saturday and what I really wanted was the bates.

Wow, the Bates has quite a strait tree eh? That wouldn't work for Nelson what-so-ever, but that makes sence, since Wintec and Bates are made by the same exact company, in the same exact factory. Just one is leather while the other is Synthetic.

Why don't you want it upnover? It is a lovely saddle.

It is a LOVELY saddle. I was actually a little surprised by how nice it was, don't know anyone who owns a Bates. I won it and don't need it since I absolutely love my Delgrange. I'd rather have the money to pay for other things but I have to admit, when I got it and realized how nice it was I was a little tempted to keep it as a back up!

Farmpony- DRAT! that's what i get for procrastinating!

I just bought a 17.5" bates next generatin elevation (SAME ONE) yesteray morning! I have a bates carpilli right now and I love it won't go back. I like this model because of the flatter back, the caprilli is not nearly as straight as this one. It is a really nice saddle!

the only other thing i've ever won was when i called in to a radio station and won a pair of tickets to "megadeath" when i was in high school. yeah, gave them to the scary looking kid next to me in history and made a new friend.

thanks kittenval! i'll try those websites!


PS- saddle is still for sale, and negotiable!
