I've been thinking a lot lately about selling my Ovation Close Contact saddle and buying a Wintec. I like the fact that you can change the gullet on the wintec. ( I think my saddle doesn't fit Vega anymore.. not sure if it ever fit her well)
But then I have NO idea what kind of saddle to get. I don't want an AP. And I don't if I want another close contact, or if I should go for a different kind.
As of right now I'm not really riding her, just doing a lot of ground work with her. I do want to teach her to jump soon, so would I be better off getting a jumping or eventing saddle? I'll also be doing flatwork when i'm not jumping her, so I want something that won't make my flatwork look horrible.
I was looking at this one, basically because it's a nice light brown color.
I've ridden in a Wintec before and find it comfy, but I would want to do a trial on the saddle anyway, just to make sure I like it. And that it fits Vega well.
Any input would be greatly appreciated :)
Oh! How much should I sell my ovation for? I've had it for a little over a year, it only has a little wear on it (mainly where the stirrup leathers were. I keep it at home, with a saddle cover on it. It's also on a saddle stand. I could get pictures of it if needed. I think I got it for around $900-$1000.
