Amanda Howell

Amanda Howell is an Olympic Rider from Australia.

"I have found the major difference with my saddles with the CAIR® Cushion System is that all contact with the horses back is smoother. Because of this, I think both horse & rider feel more comfortable with each other — the horse stays softer over the back, & the rider can sit more correctly & comfortably as a result of this. I find I can go into sitting trot without needing to warm up the horses back for as long, because the contact between horse & rider is more cushioned. It's usually a case of which comes first — the horse being soft over the back so the rider can sit, or the rider sitting in order to ride the horses back up & soft. CAIR® allows both parties to work together, & I will recommend it 100% to all riders, whether it's a young rider still developing a good seat, or an experienced rider schooling demanding movements."
