CAIR Cushion System
Replaces traditional fillings in your saddle with air cushions. CAIR® air cushion technology provides significant performance advantages in the way it distributes the rider's weight and cushions the horse's back.
Distributes the rider's weight: Under the rider's weight the air cushions continually mould to mirror the horse's individual conformation and working muscles. This ensures a close, even contact over a much larger weight bearing area and eliminates instances of pressure points.
Cushioning the horse's back: The dynamic nature of air ensures it works in synergy with the horse's muscles, rather than the horse's muscles working against a static medium. Additionally, air provides the ultimate shock absorption, reducing instances of trauma to the horse's muscles in work.
Your horse will show a marked improvement in its freedom of movement, expression and self carriage, as the CAIR Cushion ensures its absolute comfort.
EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution
Your saddle can be custom fitted to your horse's changing shape in minutes!
Together these systems offer unparalleled scope of adjustment for a total fitting solution that's not only easy, but measurable and completely reversible, giving total confidence in easily making changes to the saddle.
Too many riders know the frustration that comes from their saddle no longer fitting, they do everything they can to improve their horses comfort by using pads under the saddle to compensate for a poor fit, or even worse have to buy another saddle, only to have the same thing happen again months later.
The EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution puts your horse's comfort first. Enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your saddle offers full adjustability and is able to meet the changing needs of your horse.
