Dislikes: The one feature I do not like is that the Equisuede (a synthetic suede) covers the entire saddle, even the panels under the stirrup leathers. Thus, after my first 25 mile ride, the Webbers had rubbed the Equisuede rough, and after a few hundred miles there are several holes where the leathers rub. The holes are purely cosmetic, they do not penetrate the underlying Equileather, which is incredible tough and durable. However, the unsightly marks have stopped several of my friends from investing in this saddle in spite of the security and comfort.

Quality: Features Include: -Poley Knee Pads are Set High to Provide Maximum Security -Elastiflex Tree Provides Closer Contact and Maximizes Comfort -Soft Synthetic Materials Absorb Impact Lightweight Makes the Saddle Easier to Manage -Deep Rolled Cantle and Gooseneck Allows Room to Move -Equisuede Provides the Perfect Level of Grip -Surcingle Slots are Fitted for Your Safety -Double Girth Straps are Fitted for Versatility -Adjustable Fit Over Your Horse's Wither -Lifetime Guarantee on Wintec Tree -Easy Change Gullet System -CAIR Panels. -Additional model available with Western swinging fenders

Summary: Overall, an excellent saddle for both security and horse and rider comfort that is perfect for endurance, trail riding, polo and training young horses. I would purchase it again, if Wintec restricts the Equileather to the seat area only. Otherwise, I expect this one to last for decades!
