"The EASY-CHANGE WIDE Gullet Kit is designed to be used in saddles featuring the EASY-CHANGE Gullet System WIDE, and contains an EASY-CHANGE Gullet Gauge, four interchangeable gullet plates (2XW plate is fitted as standard in your saddle) along with fixings for fitting them in your WIDE saddle.
The EASY-CHANGE Gullet System WIDE is exclusive to the WIDE range of Bates Saddles and Wintec Saddles and offers a means of altering the width of the Elastiflex tree in your saddle. The Elastiflex tree is supported by the rigid gullet at the head, and possesses true lateral flexion to work with your horse’s muscles. The tree width is determined by the size of gullet plate fitted between the tree points. The gullet plate governs the width of the tree from the waist to the tree points. Genuine EASY-CHANGE WIDE Gullet Plates are engineered to be completely rigid, ensuring they cannot spread, or change shape under normal usage. Gullet plates are color coded by size and will remain true to their size throughout their life. Only genuine EASY-CHANGE WIDE Gullet Plates are accredited for use in saddles featuring EASY-CHANGE Gullet System WIDE. The use of non-genuine component parts, or standard EASY-CHANGE Gullets will void any manufacturer warranty. "
