Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I purchased these at Middleburg Tack Exchange (Middleburg, VA) for $18.00

Likes: I have owned the standard (thicker) Wintec stirrup straps and the slimline straps, and I prefer the standard version. In addition to seeming more substantial, they have an added benefit: they are just the tiniest bit elastic, so they act like shock absorbers. The slimline straps don't "give" at all (which some riders may prefer). When riding horses with a good deal of suspension in the trot, the standard straps are much easier on the knees, ankles, and hips. They also lie quite flat under the thigh, and I don't notice any difference between them and the thinline in this regard.

Dislikes: There isn't a thing that I dislike about them.

Quality: The quality of these straps is good. This is my second pair, and since I bought them used, there is a little rust on the buckles (though not enough to be a safety issue). I have never had any trouble with Wintec strap goods failing, and I believe these will last a long time.

Summary: For the rider who is looking for stirrup straps that are long-lasting, easy to clean, and easy on the joints, these may be just the thing.
