Likes: I love this saddle. It's comfortable, convenient and looks nice. Being the lazy person I am ;) I'd rather spend my time hanging out with my horse than cleaning tack so this saddle makes my job so much easier! I find this saddle really nice to ride in, it doesn't force me into any position. It's also nice if you're making the transition from another discipline to dressage because it doesn't have any huge knee rolls or thigh blocks to get used to.
Dislikes: The only things I can think of that I don't like about this saddle are that the billets get really stiff when they're cold(not that big of a deal though) and if you ride in leather or rubber boots you'll probably get some squeaking. Also the easy change gullet system wasn't as easy as they say. It took my mom and quite a bit of time and muscle to change but it's ok if you don't plan on changing the gullet all the time.
Quality: I've only had this saddle for 8 months but so far it's really holding up well. The only thing I'm really noticing is some wear on the underside of the saddle flap but over all it's really good.
Summary: I would really recommend this saddle to anyone. Wintec has made a synthetic saddle buyer out of me. The quality is great, comfort and convenience.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
