Does your Bates or Wintec Saddle Fit the Bill? Find Out at a Robinsons Store This Weekend!

Our Bates and Wintec ranges are easily the most popular saddles we offer. Over the years, thousands of our customers have been impressed by their versatility and capability. This week, any Bates or Wintec saddle owner will be able to bring their saddle into three of our four stores* to get a free health-check from our supplier to ensure that it's still perfect for their requirements. One of the main assets of these saddles is the unique Easy-Change™ fit solution they feature. Simply by removing two screws, it's possible to alter both the gullet plate and the riser pads inside to change the fit of the saddle entirely. This allows you to ensure the continued perfect fit of your saddle to your horse over time – or even transfer your saddle between horses of different shapes. While the technology to make these changes is very simple, we've noticed that it's quite common that owners of these saddles may not be using it to get the full advantage of the system. Of course, it's quite understandable that many people may not be too keen to start taking apart their saddle – even if that's what it's designed for! On the other hand, horses can and do change shape as they get older and, obviously, anyone using the same saddle on new horses may find their new horse is a totally different shape. This all means that today, your saddle may not fit as well as you think it does. The free health-check will include an assessment of your fitting requirements, a check of the Cair panels, the tree, the gullet and the general condition of the saddle and also some general advice on caring for your saddle. There'll also be some Goody Bags available which will include information the Bates and Wintec Saddles, Cair and the Easy Change Fit Solution and some Bates/Wintec giveaways! If you're not yet the proud owner of a Bates or a Wintec Saddle, now might be a good time to become one! We're also offering a free Easy-Change™ Promo Gullet pack (RRP £59.99) and a free Easy-Change™ Riser Pack (RRP £74.99) with every purchase of a qualifying Bates or a Wintec Saddle! This offer is available at the three participating stores until Sunday 30th June or while stocks last.
