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.

Why It Works:
Once the rider’s weight bears down on the saddle the air fluidly moves to hug the horse’s individual conformation and distribute the rider’s weight evenly over the entire bearing area of the saddle panel. Even distribution of the rider’s weight, eliminates pressure points and ensures maximum support of the horse’s working muscles, unsurpassed shock absorbency and unrestricted blood flow, aiding in muscle development of the horse.
