Are bates saddles related to wintec?
I have not had any luck with wintec saddles fitting any of my horses.
I just bought a tekna dressage saddle and i love it. It fits well and the material is fantastic. It is super gripy, much more than leather. It has a changeable gullet which i haven't touched, but is easy to change. The lady i bought it from showed me how to change them if needed.
My only complaint is the saddle feels tight in the front at the walk. At a trot or canter it feels great. My horses have huge trots, and this saddle makes me feel very secure.
