Likes: I love EVERYTHING about this saddle! It's lightweight so it doesn't hurt my back hauling it to the stable, easy to clean, it's nice looking, nice flat seat. I HATE knee rolls and was happy to see that I could take the ones out that came with the saddle. It fits my knife withered Arab as well and we all know how hard it is to fit Arabians! I dislike riding in over padded saddles and with this one, I can feel what my mare is doing, I feel balanced and am able to ride with a longer stirrup than I could with my old all purpose saddle. My mare likes the saddle too, her head carriage has gotten better and I can feel her back rounded underneath the saddle.
Quality: The saddle seems to be very well made, the equileather looks like leather. The only way people know it's synthetic, is the Wintec brand on the stirrup keeper! I haven't had the chance to change gullets yet as the medium one it came with, fits my mare. I chose the flocked version over the Cair as it was cheaper and I had heard mixed opinions about the Cair system. I thought it was better to go with the devil I knew and stick with flocking. To tell you the truth, the flocking has the same feel as the Cair does and doesn't feel like it has any lumpy bits in it.
Summary: If you can't afford the leather Bates version, BUY the Wintec!
