What is HART?
The technology that makes up HART has been proven to be transformative for horse and rider:
- Protective cushioning: CAIR Cushion System
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 your 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.
- Precision custom fit: EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution
Together the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System and the EASY-CHANGE Riser System offer a total fitting solution for your horse’s absolute comfort and your peace of mind. All adjustments are measurable, symmetrical and completely reversible, ensuring total confidence in your ability to custom fit your saddle to your horse’s changing shape for optimal comfort and performance.
- Ergonomic flex: 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. Precision engineered to be lightweight, symmetrical and ultra durable the Elastiflex Tree is guaranteed against breakage for the lifetime of your saddle (under normal riding conditions), deemed to be 10 years.
- Free movement: Performance panel technology
A generous panel, designed to ensure a large footprint on your horse’s back, maximising 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 maximise movement in their shoulder area.
Plus complementary technologies for your horse’s comfort including world-leading girthing systems.
- Superior rider performance: Comfort seat technology
Multilayered foams of exacting densities for instantaneous comfort and support of an optimal position.
A narrow waist anatomically shaped for closer contact.
Plus complementary technologies for your comfort including world-leading stirrup bar, and systems to precision-tailor support for your riding position.
