Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I was starting to take a a lot of trail rides on my new horse, who is totally bombproof. Whenever i took my leather saddle out on a trail ride, i was scratched by trees. I wanted an inexpensive saddle to trail ride in, and i figured synthetic material would clean easy. I paid around 300 for this with some synthetic leathers.
Likes: It was cheap, it doesn't scuff up like leather, and i could dunk it in a tub of water to clean off.
Dislikes: Well, the material is awful. I slid all over, making the trail ride unenjoyable. Jumping is very uncomfortable in this saddle, and it put my leg in an odd position. My horse didn't seem to be all that comfortable in it either.
Quality: Very well constructed, and I'm shocked that it has such a poor design, because it looks very well made!
Summary: Maybe mine is a faulty model, but I'm never buying a Wintec again.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
