do you have any pics of you in it?

How would you describe the flap positioning?

I am deciding between the new gen 500 a/p and the VSD.

I want the 500 because I can get it flocked instead of with CAIR (CAIR make me nervous) but the VSD looks to have a more straight flap which is what I want.

I do not have any of me in it,no. The flap is a little forward but straight. CAIR makes me nervous,too lol. It is funny because on the wintec website, it said that on the other models, like the 2000 and pro, CAIR is optional. Maybe it was a goof because I have only seen those ones sold with CAIR. You might want the VSD because I ride with a short stirrup and this saddle is perfect for it.

Oooooo, Ahhhhhh. Nice. I haven't had a chance to see the new Wintec saddles yet. I have always been a fan and have some rather old ones. Let us know how it rides!

Yeah I like the look of the new wintecs a lot, plus they look like they put the rider in a better position than the old ones. I just don't like the shape of the back panels, but it looks like it works well for your horse.

that one looks comfy

I just got rid of one of the old 500s without cair and it was horrible. might of had somthing to do with the shape of J but the thing pushed me forwards all the time.

sayin that I hope it works for you! I rode in one on a different horse and it was like an arm chair!
