Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: Purchased on ebay for approx. $450 including fittings.
Likes: Adjustable gullet and CAIR panels are nice for the comfort of the horse. It is waterproof and low-maintenance. Wintec 'leathers' are stiff and hard to adjust from the saddle or the ground.
Dislikes: The fake leather material is stiff and slick. Okay for jumping little stuff but I would not be comfortable approaching a 4' fence in it.
Quality: Good quality and construction.
Summary: A nice enough starter saddle for the price, a decent choice if you're not sure about tree size for your first horse or have a young horse that is still growing. However I would advise folks wanting an adjustable gullet synthetic jumping saddle to ante up a couple hundred extra and get the Wintec Pro Jumping saddle with the Equisuede seat and knee rolls for more security, instead.
Usefulness Rating: 2.625 out of 5.
