I see that you are in a Wintec. Which Wintec is it that you have? I ask because my Wintec 500 A/P is not the right fit for Nelson at all. When I place it on his back with no pad - it leaves pockets of air between his back and the saddle, because the saddle is not arched enough to conform to the shape of his back.

So - due to those pockets - the saddle bridges. Which is not good at all.

I was told that the Wintec CC arches....and that is why I am asking. Do you have the CC? If so - do you find it archs more than the Wintec 500 does?

I need a saddle with more of a banana shape to it - like Stubbens. Those are immensely arched


Wintec CC:

Wintec 500 A/P:

I can see a bit of an arch to the CC - but I don't know if it would be enough to accomodate Nelson's back.

Sorry to jump in, not being Pinto Pony... But have you looked into re-flocking your Wintec 500 to make it more banana shaped? My old wintec (11 years) is very flat because fo the wear, but it suits my flat backed ASH. But I just bought a new one, and it is super banana-ey, which makes it a good fit for my short back arab.

Just a thought :]

I have an old Stubben jumping saddle, and it seems to be moderately banana-ey (need a new word!), I wouldn't say it is extreme, but they may have changed the design.

No worries Nutty :) Anyone can jump in :) :)

The Wintec I have has cair - the air pannels.

Ah, ok. I never really liked the idea of Cair, I prefer traditional flocking. I just think it's a lot easier to make specific changes to the shape of it.

While I know there are many that really do dislike the CAIR in Wintec and Bates saddles, I personally do. I think the idea is great and I love how it works with your horses back. I especially like that I don't have to have it reflocked yearly - lol.

But even if my saddle could be flocked or manipulated with wool/foam stuffing, I don't think that would solve my problem. Good idea though :)
