I have a used Stubben for sale but it's a 17.5". I'm selling it for a friend who was originally asking $650 for it but I might be able to convince her to take less. Here are some pictures if you are interested.









Its a little dusty in the pics but has been well taken care of. If you are in the states shipping would be somewhere around $40.

If it doesn't say, then take a picture of it from the front for us and measure the space between the padding, at the level of the front d-rings.
I have a wintec 500, it is a great saddle, but I need a leather one. the tree needs to be a wide probably cause I have quarter horses, I will meaure it and post what size.

I'm in New Mexico. I'll check on the pricing this weekend with it's owner and get back to you. You can PM me if you want with the price you would be willing to pay and we can go from there. She's selling it because she outgrew it and needs an 18". It has been used on all different kinds of horses and she had never had a problem with it fitting. It has a regular tree (32cm) but fits a wide array of horses.

If your Wintec has the changeable gullets, just peak inside and check the color of the gullet you're currently using. That will tell us what size you need. Measuring an English saddle doesn't always give an accurate tree size.

I also have 2 leather girths (One's an Ovation. This one is used, the other is a Tory it's brand new)

I also have a pair of stubben stirrup irons.

Let me know if you're interested in anything.
