I have not had a western wintec, but I have an english wintec and I REALLY love the saddle. It comforms to any horse, and I have yet to find a horse it doesn't fit. Very easy to clean and take care of. I've had it for 5 and a half years now, and after heavy use it still holds up and looks brand new (when it's clean :] )

I LOOOVE Wintecs! Although leather is preferable, I have ridden in Wintec's at other barns for a long time and they hold up nicely and are really light and comfy!

the only saddle I've ever had is a Wintec with cair
they fit great, the adjustable tree fits anyone under a wide semi-perfectly
I also like them because I don't have to clean mine after every ride and I don't care if I rise in the rain. all you have to do is sponge the off and they're brand new!

I have a Wintec, and its been thrown on everything from draft crosses, to ponies, to TBs, and its held up great. I find a lot of kids feel a lot more secure in them, and generally find their feet a lot faster in lessons and are able to expand their skills because of the security.

Mind you, some snobby show people generally scoff and them - but hey, whatever works, right? And as a plus, you come out wayyyy better off in the financial scheme of things than the snobby show people! :p

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

Affordable saddle + high wither TB = Thorowgood saddle. You can get one for about $400 new through the Dover Saddlery catalog in the closeout section. They never stop selling them, but always seem to have them listed for cheap as closeouts. I've had mine for 4 years and it's still in great condition despite being ridden in about 4 times a week.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

I love the Wintec westerns! The only thing is there is not a big as selection in tree sizes. If it fits they are awesome durable saddles. If you don't find one that fits I second the Big Horn there is more tree sizes available with that brand as well.
