What is HART?
The technology that makes up HART has been proven to be transformative for horse and rider:
Protective cushioning - The CAIR Cushion System
- All Bates saddles are created with the CAIR cushion system. This system replaces the traditional fillings in your saddle with air, and allows your saddle to constantly adapt to your horses working muscles.
Precision custom fit - The EASY-CHANGE Gullet & Riser Systems
- The EASY-CHANGE Gullet System and the EASY-CHANGE Riser System offers a total fitting solution, allowing you to custom fit your saddle to your horse's changing shape for optimal comfort and performance.
Ergonomic flex - The Elastiflex Tree
- Supported by an EASY-CHANGE Gullet, the Elastiflex Tree features a rigid head to maintain clearance over your horse’s wither, while possessing lateral flexion to work with your horse’s muscular movement with every stride.
Free movement - Performance panel technology
- a generous panel, designed to ensure a large footprint on your horse’s back, maximizing the weight-bearing surface of the saddle and resulting in a reduction in pressure and increased comfort for your horse.
- a wide and even chamber, with performance panels to support your horse’s working muscles and maximize movement in their shoulder area.
- plus complementary technologies for your horse’s comfort including world-leading girthing systems.
Superior rider performance - Comfort Seat Technology
