I bought a used Wintec English saddle (very basic, still trying to figure out the model) this weekend for my 9 year old at a used tack sale. The saddle is in very good shape, and is very temporary because she grows so fast. I want to know how long the Wintec saddles have had the interchangable gullets?
Before we went I had the shape of the horse's shoulders/withers traced onto tag board so I could test the saddles, and this one was almost the exact same angle so that's good, but I can't really tell if this is one that can change gullets. It's a nice feature, and I'm wondering if we lucked out.
For irons and leather, girth, saddle, a pad and a brand new English bridle, we spent $125. I think I did pretty good as far as my bargain shopping goes, and for a saddle that might last my growing daughter 2 years, I didn't want to spend much more.
