What is HART?
Wintec saddles have all the benefits of Horse and Rider Technology. We call this HART.
HART technologies have proved to be transformative for both horse and rider.
CAIR Cushion System:
The revolutionary CAIR® Cushion System replaces the traditional fillings in your saddle panel with air. Two independently sealed air cushions are placed in each saddle panel.
Air is a fluid medium and will adapt to the horse’s muscle movement. Your weight will be distributed evenly across the entire length of the cushion, virtually eliminating pressure points.
Your horse will be happier, move more freely and have better carriage.
EASY-CHANGE Fit Solution:
An inclusive total saddle fitting solution that not only enables full adjustment to be made to the saddle but empowers riders to custom fit their saddles in a matter of minutes.
Select the optimal tree width for your horse’s shape with the EASY-CHANGE® Gullet System or make adjustments within the saddle panel for optimal balance and clearance with the EASY-CHANGE® Riser System.
Your saddle can be changed to mirror the changes in your horse with diet, fitness, travel, maturity or injury – it’s both simple and reversible. Your horse’s comfort need never be compromised again.
Elastiflex Saddle Tree:
The Elastiflex™ tree is designed to be rigid through the length of the saddle, while possessing true lateral flexion to work with the horse’s muscles.
Performance Saddle Technology:
Every horse deserves to experience the comfort and release of responsive cushioning and total impact absorption.
Comfort Seat Technology:
Enjoy a balanced seat that assists you to maintain the perfect position with seamless contact to your horse, free from any interference.
