Purchase: Upon recommendation of my dressage trainer, a Master Saddle Fitter, I purchased this slightly used saddle April of 2011 on Tack Trader for $590 shipped inclusive of Webbers, irons, and 3 gullets. Dressage training in a comfy AP didn't help my bad posture so, although no one in our (jumping) barn rides in a Wintec, it is my "go to" now. Too bad I can't jump in it. Wintec, if you're reading this, do you need a salesperson in the Midwest?
Likes: Where do I start? Great price, superior comfort, outstanding rider balance and security, lightness, and easy care make me a very happy purchaser. The saddle's adjust ability is perfect for a share boarder like me.
Dislikes: The over girth doesn't seem to contribute anything to the saddle's security. Strangely enough, the smell, cleaning and oiling of real leather is missed, but I'll get over it.
Quality: This saddle's contour blocs and flatter seat shape keep me and the wonderful large-chested TB/App mare I get to ride very comfy. Webbers are secure and a nice flat change from the stirrup strap bump on my jumping saddle. This version is wool-flocked, not CAIR, and still very satisfactory.
Summary: Buy a Wintec Pro Dressage saddle with Contourblocs if you want to concentrate on your flat work or enjoy trail riding more - you (and your wallet) won't be sorry!
