Jumping Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Pro Jumping
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I got this saddle a few months ago from a local tack shop for $675. It was a good deal, and I chose it over the original Wintec close contact, mostly because of the color and the equisuede.

Likes: It is very grippy, making cantering easier to sit, and jumping easier on horses who overjump. It didn't take too long to break in, and the color hasn't faded yet. After about 5 months of owning it, it still looks brand new. The cleaning factor is also highly convienient; it taked about 1 minute to clean.

Dislikes: Mostly just the fact that it is synthetic. Synthetic saddles are often criticized, but it is simply my personal preference. Another thing I don't like is the first few weeks of riding in it. It doesn't take long to break in, but until you get used to the feel it is extremely painful to ride in. Also, the webbers' little plasic thing that secure your stirrup adjustment rubs against your leg occasionally causing a bruise. Lastly, the gullet system. It is the most frustrating thing I have ever done. It says that it only takes about 10 minutes, but I spent over an hour trying to get those stupid screws to fit in correctly. Or maybe I'm just dumb? Who knows...

Quality: Overall it is very well constructed. I get complements all the time on its general appearance, and two people have already bought the same saddle after seeing mine and wanting it(both love theirs!). Also, for such a cheap price, the quality is exceptional. Some people at my barn get saddles from Stubben and Bates and all those fancy names and within weeks, their saddles are faded, scratched, and pretty much just ugly. I personally, go a lot for appearance and real leather saddles just don't hold up very well.

Summary: Overall my saddle is awesome. My riding has greatly improved on it, and my horse loves the fittings. I would suggest this saddle to anyone and buy it again anyday!
