Wintec
Synthetic Trail Saddle
Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Synthetic Trail Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: Chicks Saddlery, paid $us300 + shipping to NZ.

Likes: It's synthetic, easy to care for, hard wearing, comfortable, relatively light to handle (24lbs I think), good for wet weather, beach riding. Available in dark brown. It looks like the Wintec version, but has a grey suede lining, not wool-type padding like the Wintec does. I can dismount comfortably, not get caught on the horn. My horse seems to like it.

Dislikes: This one arrived without an off billet, it came with 1 long nylon latigo. I like the size of the endurance-type stirrups, I would prefer them to be a little heavier. I thought it was advertised as QH bars, 7" gullet, but it is FQH bars,which doesnt seem to be a problem with my horse who has lost weight recently. I have to shorten the very long stirrup leathers/holders, I havent done so yet as I think they need to be sealed with a hot knife.

Quality: Well made, no apparent defects, some parts of it may not last as long as a good leather saddle, only time will tell. Appears to be an improvement on Cordura.

Summary: Good value for money, I recommend this for everyday general use, I think it would handle daily use.
