I took lessons in a Wintec 500 and thought it was fine, but it was the first dressage saddle I had ever ridden in. After riding in several different types of dressage saddles, I realized that the Wintec did absolutely nothing to enourage a good seat. If you're simply using it for pleasure riding, I'm sure its fine. However, if you are interested in actually learning dressage, I'd wait a little longer and save a few extra $$ to find a quality used dressage saddle. I just found a Crosby Sofride PSG, never ridden in, with the tags still attached for $895 on ebay
. The tag still had the original retail price of $1800 on it! I absolutely love it, and my position improved 1000% percent the first time I rode in it!
