can I use the 20% off coupon for this?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about the coupon, but I will tell you that the surface at the bottom of the saddle got broken about 1 inch. It's a shame, because my kids hardly use it, Is almost new. I would ask for the guarantee, but I am in Mexico and surely it would be impossible the change. I had to buy it in the USA and bring it from there to Mexico. I bought it 6 months ago, and we use it once a week.
what does CAIR means?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
