My friend said his broke apart right in middle, so he felt like those halves are sliding down off the horse. Was lots of fun for him to walk 2 mile back to his house dragging the horse and the saddle!
The reason I got mine in 1st place is because the reviews for english Wintec are so good (and I did ride in english one and it's a nice saddle for the price). Obviously Western is made differently though.
