Right now I'm just riding. I do eventually want to do dressage... but haven't ruled out jumping and will also do trail. So, I may end up with three saddles: an AP for jumping, a dressage for dressage, and a western for trail.
I'm not sure I'm a fan of the Wintec because of the contourblocs. Of course, I haven't ridden in it so I will have to see how it feels. And, yes, it's the CAIR (air filled panels). It was an impulse buy and I've regretted it ever since. It's a lovely saddle... but I'm just not a fan of synthetics and I paid too much for it.
The AP is my favorite saddle of the three, but it will be very easy to sell if I want to sell it.. my trainer wants to buy it. I've been using it on the school horses for lessons.
