Wintec
Close Contact 500
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Close Contact 500
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this item new off ebay for around $600. I got it in dark brown and it is flocked, not with CAIR panels. It came with a Wintec CAIR girth and the entire easy change gullet system.

Likes: I absolutely love this saddle. I never really liked Wintecs, but this saddle changed my mind. It puts me in a great position on the flat and over jumps. It is also SO comfy. It comes with removable knee blocks, which is very helpful. My horse seems to like it also. It is so easy to clean, too. Just wipe it off with a wet cloth and you're good to go!

Dislikes: The "easy" change gullet system is not very easy at all. It took a very long time and 2 of my friends had to help me just to change the gullet! It also is a little squeaky because it is synthetic. Other than that, there is not much to dislike.

Quality: I have found that the quality of this saddle is great. It doesn't scratch easily and it is totally waterproof, too.

Summary: For only $600, this saddle is amazing. Overall, I am very happy I purchased this saddle.
