Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle for about $250 on eBay.

Likes: It is easy to clean, and cheap.

Dislikes: It didn't fit any horse I put it on! The barn where I ride has mostly Morgans, but also a few other breeds including Paints, Quarter Horses, and a Quarter Horse/Thoroughbred cross. It did now fit ANY of them... And there was quite a wide variety of back shapes and sizes. Also, it fit me okay but the seat threw me so far forward I could barely ride. It shoves the rider's shoulders forward and flings the legs back. It's no wonder I have issues with my balance; I spent a year fighting my saddle to get in the right place! I have heard similar complaints about all members of Wintec's all-purpose saddle line (including the 500 and 2000).

Quality: Fair quality for a synthetic saddle. I noticed a little wear on the canvas seat but that was about it.

Summary: DO NOT buy this saddle. There are many inexpensive saddles that are better designed than this... You owe it to yourself to find something better. I'd give it no stars if I could. :(
