Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I was looking around at saddles for my first horse, Ike. We wanted something that wasn't expensive but would last. I found this product at statelinetack.com for around $270.
Likes: Wintec is great. It cleans easily and fits Ike like a dream. I'm very comfortable in it too. My friend rides with me and we switch horses for fun and she said that it was much better than her leather saddle, which took forever to break in. This Wintec saddle has been in use for about 4 years abut hasn't worn out too badly for the abuse I have given it.
Dislikes: There are only a few bad things about the Wintec 250. One is that it collects dirt and hair so easily. It, for my horse anyway, limits the pads I can put on Ike. It might just be him but I can't use anything to big/ fluffy.
Quality: This saddle is still the best I own after getting leather ones that take too long to break in. I have shown a bit in it also. Only a few stitches have broken but it is still in good condition.
Summary: All in all it is a great saddle that is cheaper than leather and just as good. If you find that cleaning it gets to be a pain, try a vacuum cleaner or a lint remover, it worked for me.
