Firstyly, if you want to jump YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SADDLE THAT FITS YOU! I learned this the hard way. My wintec AP does NOT fit me, I require a 17.5", and was riding in a 17, and that saddle throws me WAYYY off blanace. Secondly, I would go for an actual jumping saddle, NOT an AP. They disable you from properly getting your leg up underneath your body enough to do more than 2'6" stuff. I'm an eventer, and so I have to have a very secure, strong seat, and my wintec doesn't allow me to do that. I would firstly talk to a saddle fitter, they can help fit both you and your horse, and help you find the right saddle. Also, the cair ins't that bad, but I would perfer wool flocking, so it can be ajusted. And the wintec material is hard to deal with also. AND the saddles really arn't that comfy either.
