What our fitters think:
“You don’t often find a pony jumping saddle with the same options as the bigger horse size offers but the Bates Pony Elevation is purely a scaled down version. Super for the rider with a slightly deeper seat whilst also offering support for the pony. Perfect for the competent rider and pony combination needing a more technical jumping saddle.”
