    I am looking for saddle recommendations. I take lessons mostly in Dressage but like to trail ride and pop over the occasional jump or log.

    I have an older model Wintec 250 AP saddle in excellent condition for sale. It's a 17" without an adjustable gullet system. It's used, but NOT abused in the least. I bought it new and probably ridden in it 10 times. There is a minor scuffing on the underside of one of the flaps where the girth...

    I would appreciate it if anyone could share their experience with WintecLite. They are relatively new (came out a year ago?) and there is next to nothing in terms of real user reviews online that I could find. NEW WintecLite All Purpose - Wintec What I understand is they weigh less than 5kg...

    Whoever has tried these half pads before, what your opinion? Also, would a medium fit my 17" wintec saddle? It sits on the rolls a little too much on a small fleeceworks half pad, and I want to make sure a medium Mattes wouldn't do that. Thanks!

    Hello all, I just got a new (used) wintec AP saddle for a wonderful price, but it's just a wee bit dirty. What's the best way to clean synthetic material?

  7. Saddle Fitting Issues
    Hey everyone, I was hoping to get some opinions on the new saddle I got. It's a Wintec 250 Dressage saddle, currently has the medium-wide gullet plate in it. I know it does not fit my horse perfectly right now, and have no fear. The saddle fitter will be coming out to look at it and see what...

    Does anyone know if there is a western saddle with an Easy-Change Gullet system? I know there is a Wintec western saddle but am not sure if it has interchangeable gullet system.

    I currently have a leather deeper seated saddle. After riding in a close contact saddle it's not as comfortable as I had liked. I am thinking about selling my leather one and getting a close contact Wintec. The horse that I ride most is a thoroughbred and I have heard that wintecs are better on...
