Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle from StateLine tack in 2005. We bought a "bulk order" for many of the riding students at the Barn I was at. I paid about $425 I believe. I have the Wintec stirrups and girth as well. My second Wintec 2000, I paid about $545 for, it was on clearance at a local tack shop ("Scuff" sale).
Likes: This saddle is very comfortable. It is easy to keep clean, looks pretty enough for shows, and I have yet to find a horse it can't fit. It is so versatile. I rode a draft cross with the wide gullet for a while, switched back to regular gullet for jumping on my QH mare. Rode a 16.1 hh chunky palomino and trained a 15 hh dainty paint mare. All with the same saddle. The saddle has held up well, I only had to replace it after it was thrown from a rearing horse while I was tacking him up. The tree cracked, but to be fair it was 11 years old at that point.
Dislikes: Can't think of anything I dislike!!
Quality: High quality. Lasted me 11 years and many hours in the saddle.
Summary: I liked it so much that after I broke my first one, I bought another. For the price, comfort, versatility and quality, it is well worth it.
Usefulness Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
