Wintec for Life!!!, 7/25/2012

Kristen from Sherwood Park, AB, Canada

I love my Wintec saddle (did not purchase from site as I live in Canada but bought mine used). The knee blocks are very comfortable and secure. I prefer a deeper seat and this one is perfect. Super easy to keep clean (my horse rolled halfway while wearing it yesterday and when he got up I just brushed it clean with my hand and it looked perfect again). I know mine will last a long time, I keep it covered with the saddle cover when in tack locker. It is very durable but I am still careful not to wear jeans with buttons on back pockets to avoid scratching (when my breeches are in the wash). I have the easy change gullet system, it is super easy! I can change gullet in under 5 minutes. Perfect for my TB who muscles up and down often so I can tailor it to fit him. I do not have the CAIR (last Wintec I owned had it, sold due to seat size no issue with the saddle otherwise), I prefer the flocked one anyways. This is a very well made saddle, leaves perfectly even sweat marks on my gelding. Will never buy any other saddle than Wintec!

WOW!!, 7/16/2012

Me from here

A few months ago, i was looking for a new saddle. I settled on this one beacause of price with a "it'll do" kind of attitude, not expecting it to be too good. When I got it in, it was already better than expectations. The brown synthetic is gorgeous! It fits me and my horse and is comfortable for me, and my horse doensnt seem to object to it at all. The saddle is Perfect except for one thing. I am not a fan of how the stirrup bars work. Though your leathers are SUPER easy to go on, they come off on occasion too :(, but it is not at all common, and only happens when i forget to push my leathers back on the bar before i ride. I love this saddle!

Love it!, 5/9/2012

Alyson from East Tennessee

So comfortable! Can't believe how much better this saddle feels than my old, traditonal leather saddle. Already butter soft/broken in and fits my 14h TWH like a dream. No more bruised thighs for me and no more sore back for my horse! Love the fact that I can customize this saddle not just to my horse, but to me. The correct position is so much easier to find and stay in! And WOW! This saddle is lovely, if I didn't know it was synthetic, I would never believe it. And since I got the floor model on sale and saved almost $100 I loved the price too! Thank you Wintec!

WORST SADDLE EVER., 4/8/2012

horsegirl4evz from Chester Illinois

THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST SADDLE I HAVE EVER BOUGHT. I have black and blue bruises on my legs from how illy this saddle fite me. I am normally a 17.5" and that is what i ordered, but never again will I own a Wintec. My horse hates this Saddle with a passion. He's a working horse.. He LOVESS to work! and now he dreads it because of this poor quality saddle. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GET A COLLEGIATE LAURETE. THEY'RE WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

Nice :], 5/27/2010

Heidi from

This is a very nice saddle. It's comfortable, fairly easy to clean and nice looking. It has fit all most every horse it's been on (but my TB) and they love it. One of the horses won't ride well unless we use this saddle on him. It's worth the money.

AH - MA - ZING!!!!!, 4/9/2010

Shaelynn Scovil from

SOOOOO COMFY AND PUTS YOU IN A SECURE POSITION!!!!! Fits my horse nicely and he seems happy in it. A little time consuming to change the gullets but I dont care! I have ridden in this saddle for hours on end and am still comfortable in it. Everyone should have one. It is really gorgeous,too. It looks SO much better in real life. The gullet is really wide (4 fingers) and this saddle may not be for all horses because the panels are REALLY huge and wide bearing so might not fit an arab
