EASY-CHANGE Gullet System
The EASY-CHANGE Gullet System is a revolution in convenience and comfort for horses and riders. It's a system developed to ensure that a saddle maintains the best fit for a horse by allowing riders to change a saddle's fit to suit a horse's changing shape.
Did you know ...
You can easily determine the correct gullet width for your horse with an EASY-MEASURE Gullet Gauge.
There are six gullet sizes available in the standard EASY-CHANGE Gullet System. YELLOW for Narrow, GREEN for Medium Narrow, BLACK for Medium, BLUE for Medium Wide, RED for wide or WHITE for extra wide. Available for purchase as a complete kit, or individually.
WHAT IS CAIR?
Finally a panel system that understands the mechanics of the equine back and the impact saddles have on horse and rider performance. The revolutionary CAIR® Cushion System replaces the traditional fillings in your saddle panel with air. There are two independently sealed Air Cushions within each Saddle Panel. The concept of air, as the ultimate in cushioning for the horse is simple.
Air being a fluid medium will constantly adapt to the horse’s working muscles. This means that your weight will be distributed evenly across the entire length of the cushion, virtually eliminating pressure points. This extraordinary comfort results in freer movement, better carriage and a happier horse. For such a simple concept the dramatic difference the CAIR® Cushion System makes to a horse’s comfort and performance is profound.
The CAIR® Cushion System is patented worldwide and exclusive to Bates and Wintec Saddles. Basket
