    I ride in a Wintec 17.5" 2000 AP, and a 17.5" Stubben Siegfried. The Wintec goes on the Arab, and the Stubben goes on the TB.

    I have the same exact Wintec! It served it's purpose as a starter saddle. Super easy to maintain and cheap off Ebay. Fits my flat backed, medium withered SSH like a glove.

    Everyone hates it but me though. They say it's like sitting on a rock and that it forces your legs forward. Oh well. I like it alright!


    And, as it happens, I've had an eye on a Stubben Siegfried at the local tack shop... Good saddle?

    Stubbens are very well made saddles, and the Siegfried is a popular model. I have an older one that I bought off Craigslist. Beautiful saddle that only needed a little TLC to bring it back to almost new condition.

    They're not 'cushy' like some saddles, but if you like how your 2000 AP feels, you'll like the Siegfried. I'm used to a firmer seat, so that's what I prefer.

    Hey Brighteyes check out ebay right now. They have a lot of stubbans on sale CHEAP! I just bought an 18" pretty new and hardly used for 500. It was one of those scandica VSD. And a nice 19" tristan older for 200.

    My plus size horse is happy to model it. :)

    Sorry about crappy picture quality.

    How much was it, if you don't mind me asking? I want to buy husband a new saddle, but really don't want to spend a ton of cash on it.

    I ride in a Bates Olympia 17.5" dressage, and a Wintec 2000 17.5" Gp :) Have fitted into smaller saddles though!

    That one in my pic was $700 used, but it was very very gently used.
    I think it was a steal to be honest.
