Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: Purchased brand new through a seller on eBay for $625.
Likes: It looked nice, but I almost killed myself using it.
Dislikes: The saddle fit my horse and myself fine. Because of the way the stirrup bars are the stirrup leathers SLID OFF THE BARS while going up a steep hill. I fell down the side of the hill and cracked my helmet wide open. I have had to have injections in my back to help with the long term pain this accident caused me. What ticked me off the most was that I called (never reached a live person), mailed, and emailed the Wintec company telling them what happened to me and asking for them to please compensate me for my emergency room visit. I NEVER HEARD FROM THEM EVER!!!
Quality: POOR STIRRUP BAR DESIGN COULD PROVE FATAL!
Summary: Horribly upset with how Wintec ignored me. I checked my stirrup leathers before riding and they were correctly seated in the stirrup bars. This should have never happened.
