The one I sat in was at least half an inch too small for me and I loved it - but I haven't tried one on my horse yet! It was so comfy, and it had squishy :P I like squishy

Hi there Twinholm, I have already bought a CC saddle. I hope you find a buyer for it.

I have a Bates Elevation in leather. I don't have any experience with their synthetic saddles, or the models you're talking about, but I love my saddle! Wintec in general is a nice synthetic brand, and they offer the adjustable gullet.

I would try to buy a saddle where you can see it and ride in it before you buy it. I always only buy saddles from local tack shops, or EBay- with 100% positive feedback only.

I have been through 3 saddles because I did not try it on my horse first-- it can become very stressful. I would make sure you can ride in it.

Wintec is a very good company, and with the adjustable tree, you can usually find a size to fit most horses.

Good luck!

Guys. I already bought one. I will never buy a saddle without trying it (or the same make/model) on my horse and riding in it first. I am very happy with my CC saddle. The next step is to upgrade my dressage saddle and obviously get some more dressage lessons, the better to utilise a good dressage saddle!
