"I find the Bates Saddles extremely comfortable to sit in, the CAIR Cushion System gives me security and softness in the saddle even when I am struggling to find the medium trot button. I feel as though I stay with the movement better and not lose contact with the horses back. My horses are no doubt reaping the benefit also. Even after riding a horse for quite a long time, I have taken the saddle off and have found there are no dry patches where the saddle has been sitting. This indicates to me there are no pressure points at all."
