Wintec Pro Webbers, good or bad?

Last weekend, I bought a pair of these buckle-less stirrup leathers because they were on sale and I thought the concept was interesting. I haven't actually used them yet, just looking for opinions.

I have them! I there's no bulge right where they connect to the saddle, which is cool. They're nothing 'OMG MUST HAVE!' but I like them and would get them again if I needed a new pair of stirrups. Very easy to change, too!

I love them. I even use them on my leather dressage saddle. So much more comfortable than the bulgy buckle leathers. I have had one pair for over ten years, the style has changed slightly, seems like my newer ones are lasting just as well too.

Sara -
I am thinking of purchasing those as well. I have just ordered a Bates Isabell saddle and I think those will work on it.

Would love to hear what you think of them.

I just tried my friend's saddle and webbers last night! I'd have to say they are nice because of how thin they are. But they are an absolute pain to adjust and to put up when you're done riding. My friend attached clips to the D-rings on her saddle, so she can clip the stirrups up. The way they sit on your legs can be annoying too. My friend said she likes them enough, but would never buy them again. I prefer wintec slim lines. They're the same price.

Haha those are the exact things I was worrying about when I was holding them in the store: "How do I run them up if I need to?" "Man, I bet you can't adjust these easily from the saddle..." etc:P Well, I will try them out tomorrow and see how it goes, post back then. Zwarte, I got mine from Dover Saddlery.

I have used webbers before and liked them. There is less bulk under your thigh, which is nice for sitting work and no-stirrup work.

I am all for the webbers! I have used them for years and yes it is a bit of a hassle regarding "running up" but there is a slot up at the top that you can hook into. I'm too lazy for that though I just flip them over the saddle when tacking/untacking. I have no problems adjusting them while riding and I love not having the bulk under my thigh. I use them on my stubben and wintec saddles. I got mine at Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies | Home
