Horse Tack Review


500 Dressage 18"
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: 500 Dressage 18"
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: Purchased off eBay with full gullet, leathers, girth, and measuring tool. $515 and free shipping. Great deal!

Likes: Good quality for a synthetic saddle. Changeable gullets weren't too bad and took about 5-10 min to change. CAIR seat gave a different ride but it was comfortable.

Dislikes: I have a very wide horse. The XW white gullet isn't wide enough, panels are too narrow for her back, twist is too narrow for me, flaps stick out from the horse so that I can't get my leg to her side without fighting with the saddle. You need webbers with this saddle instead of leathers. The buckle from the leathers rubs into my thigh. The knee blocks are way too small and my leg slides around.

Quality: Nicely put together. Good stitching.

Summary: If you have a broadback horse do not buy a Wintec. Thorowgood broadback saddles fit the wider horse much better and their XW or XXW sits lower and has wider panels for a horse with no withers. I'm sure I'd be happier with this saddle if it fit my horse better.
