Most importantly 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.

As a result 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.

In conclusion 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 your horse’s comfort and performance is profound.

Firstly , 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.

Care Instructions

Beautifully styled with meticulous attention to detail, you will turn heads in any Arena while being confident that your saddle is comfortable for you and your horse.

Looking after your saddle

Classically crafted from European leather, you will appreciate the elegance and quality of your new Arena saddle and the beauty of its natural leather*.

As a result any visible markings in the leather are completely normal and are a natural characteristic of the hides.

To help to keep your saddle in top condition it is important to clean and dress your saddle regularly.

Firstly we recommend dressing your saddle with a wax-based balsam prior to its first use (and regularly thereafter).

Secondly as this helps to seal in the moisture and protect it from sweat, wear and tear.

*Your Arena saddle features man-made technical linings for improved resistance to wear.

If your Arena saddle is fitted with moveable knee blocks, they should be moved from their packing location (usually upside down) to suit your individual riding position prior to use.
