500 All Purpose Saddle
All Purpose Saddles



Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: 500 All Purpose Saddle
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle at Bits n Bridles. I bought it because it was my first saddle, low maintenance and $440.

Likes: I didn't really like this saddle at all, I just had to make do with it.

Dislikes: I didn't like the high cantle or the knee rolls because when my stirrups were adjusted to jumping length my knees were just at the end of the knee rolls and when I would jump 3'+ I put them one whole shorter so I could really get out of the saddle and then my knees were totally hanging over the edge of the knee roll and that was very uncomfortable. The saddle scratched very easily and the suede and underside of the flaps (it was some kind of fabric type material) attracted ALOT of dirt. It was impossible to get my stirrup leathers on the stirrup bars and it was almost impossible to tighten my girth while on my horse.

Quality: This is an okay quality saddle for maybe a trail rider - but even after a while you start to notice how the saddle seat is barely padded. The construction isn't the greatest but it's okay for a beginner

Summary: I would buy a different saddle if I could do it all over again because it's really not worth the money
