"As soon as I opened the box with my Victrix and caught a glimpse of the flashes of pink I was in love! The coloured leather is the same high-quality Luxe leather used on the rest of the saddle so you don’t have to compromise quality for looks.
"Riding in a saddle that showcases a touch of my personal style is a dream come true for me. I might be 25, but I will always want to sport some hot pink!
"After opening the box and admiring the eye-catching design, I picked up the saddle and was impressed with how light and compact it is.
"The saddle is obviously close contact but there is enough support to keep me secure in the saddle. I love how the knee and leg blocks are adjustable so I can custom fit the saddle to myself on the fly.
"Of course, all Bates saddles allow you to continually keep them custom-fitted to your horse and this one is no exception.
"High-performance design, personalized styling and a convenient custom-fitting system - the Victrix has it all and I am thrilled that I have the Victrix, in addition to my Bates Advanta eventing saddles.
"My Munchkins and I are beyond happy to work with Bates and I am beyond excited to ride at a major competition in the Bates Victrix and show it off to my fellow eventers!"
