I've ever said that there will never be a wintec under my bottom on the horses back. It was a fate, that I bought exactly this one. It's a wintec pro dressage and I was very excited. It fits me and my horse and lets me feel the movements of my horse very well, as my horse gets my hints in a very streight way. But if you're going to buy one, buy it without cair system. The cair pads makes the saddle flounder. And they're also susceptible to damage.
Of course, lether is better than synthetik, but the wintec quality is not so bad. And to buy a good leather saddle, you have to spent much more money on it. We have a lot of really good saddleries in germany, but the saddles are sooo expensive. If you want to have a good one you have to spend 2000 or more, open end.
And I like the bates and county saddles too, but the bates also without cair of corse. Or and nothing to say about status, I really don't like him and can't find something good on it.
Oh and @sally A wintec has to be customize as a leather saddle too. But there are a few types of horse where this saddle is never going to fit the horse.

Just ask and let the horse do.
