Is this a jumping GP or dressage?

Ok I don't have any photos but I can describe it really well. I know it is a wintec 2000 I was told it is a dressage but someone else said it is a GP. So I looked at both on google and the GP has 3 points and the dressage 2. Mine has 2 points and short flaps. My saddle also has long points the GP only has short ones I will upload a photo when I can

Are the flaps straight cut or forward cut? That is the most distinct difference between a jumping and dressage saddle.

By points I am assuming you mean billets? The AP/GP saddles have three short billets and take a long girth. The Dressage models have two long billets and take a short girth.

As mentioned above, AP/GP saddles will have forward cut shorter flaps for a shorter stirrups, and Dressage saddles will have straight cut longer flaps for longer stirrups.

I've got a Wintec 2000 Pro and it's a GP saddle with a longer dressage style type of flap on it. It's also got 3 short billets and takes a long girth.
This is what it looks like:

I say it is an All Purpose. It is an inbetweener of a Jumping and a Dressage.

Personally I go by VSS, or S, or VS, or VSD - I'm not quite understanding what you all mean by GP and yadda yadda?

I'd say the Wintec 2000, is a VSS. Which is an All Purpose Saddle, emphasised towards jumping. The Wintec 200 still has a deep seat found in dressage saddles, and still has the stirrup bars placed in the middle to allow the rider to do both disciplines.

MI From the way I take it it and understand it, A/P and G/P are petty much the same thing. I found for me personally, to help with 2-point, and over all position, a close contact works for me, I do understand though that it depends on the rider/horse combination.

What does VSS, S, etc stand for? I've always heard of AP or GP?

VSS are the german initials for an AP that has forward flaps for jumping. VSD is an AP with longer/straighter flaps for more Dressage work.

AP = All Purpose
GP = General Purpose

Both are the same. AP is the American term and I believe GP is the British term.

I have a wintec saddle kind of like what you are describing, it has three billets and shorter flaps. Mine is an all purpose but I use it for flat work (like Dressage). Yours might be an all purpose (GP).
