Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Isabell
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle brand new on craigslist for a steal of a deal at $700. I had ridden in a friends Wintec Isabell and really liked it. Being new to the english riding world I had very little to compare too but needed my own saddle fast.

Likes: I like the Wintec Isabell because it sits you correctly and has a deep seat for a secure fit. Really great for flat work and you can adjust the knee blocks and gullet for the best fit for horse and rider. Super easy to clean up and no worries about it getting ruined from weather or mud. Just use a brush and if need be, rinse off with water and towel dry. On a side note, this saddle is also very classy looking.

Dislikes: I have to say there is not much to dislike about this saddle except it is not as versatile as I would like. I wanted to be able to use it for trail rides and a little jumping but quickly found out that it is not so great for either of those. Unless the trails are flat or slightly up hill ( with no downhills) then this saddle is probably best left in the barn. When going down hill on a trail ride I felt like I was going to do an endo over the horses head, hence not feeling very secure in the seat. Although I haven't done jumping yet, I was told by my instructor that this saddle is not the best because of seat position. So I guess it is not as versatile as I was originally lead to believe.

Quality: The quality of this unit is excellent and the construction top notch. Fits my horse great and the changeable gullet is a blessing since I have a high withered, hard to fit horse.

Summary: Overall this saddle is a great buy and I would recommend to anyone who wants to do mostly flat work. It lends a secure feeling especially to one who has ridden western all my life and is now adjusting to an english saddle.
