Purchase: I was looking for an english saddle and I thought that the Wintec brand might have something at a good price, plus I have heard so many good things about the Wintec saddles. I bought the saddle for $400 including stirrups/leathers/girth. I got an awesome deal, the online store was closing.
Likes: I cannot say enough good things about this saddle. I ride about 1-2 times a week on my horse in this saddle. I like the black color because it's great if you do low level dressage. The saddle is also comfortable for trail riding and jumping. This saddle fits most horses from Arabians to QH's.
Dislikes: I dislike that the saddle is synthetic. I would prefer if it was leather and then it would be perfect! The CAIR panels really don't make a difference so you're basically paying more money for practically nothing.
Quality: The stitching is great and hasn't yet come out. The synthetic is easy to clean and doesn't get very dirty. The quality of the saddle is perfect for the price I payed.
Summary: Overall the Wintec 500 A/P CAIR saddle is a very good and useful saddle. Take it anywhere and everywhere! Great for schooling and shows!
