My first English saddle was a Wintec Saddle and 20 yrs later it still looks new and its so comfortable to ride in.
KRISTIN T on Dec 8, 2014
Fit me and my large friesian/paint mare (16.2hh) perfect. My mare passed away and I lost weight so I am getting a smaller seat of this exact same style saddle. Love Wintecs.

My husband is 6' 4" would the stirrups on this saddle be long enough for him?
Annie B on Aug 8, 2015
Best Answer: Well, I am not sure. I am 5'7" and have fairly long legs. The straps that hold the stirrup have about 7 more holes to let down. But that would only probably be 6'2" if my math is correct. Your best bet is to find one to "try on".

I am a 5' tall woman, so I am curious if anyone my size has purchased this saddle? I am concerned with the fender size. Is it possible to get this Wintec saddle with smaller fenders to fit someone my size while keeping the 15" seat size?

Thanks,
Terry
Terry on Mar 22, 2014
Best Answer: Terry,
I am 4'11" and i had to punch two exrtra holes in the stirrup straps. Thats about as high as it can go, because i really need a third but im afraid to burn into the nylon (as it may make the straps weak). Its a great saddle; but it does take it awhile for the fenders to relax and bend. Ive been riding mine for 4 months and they are finally starting to give (the broom handle through the stirrups only helped a little). Hope this helped.

I own a quarter horse and was wondering which size would be best to buy the 15, 16, or 17 ?
Victoria V on Feb 12, 2014
Best Answer: The size is the seat size for you, not your horse. Most ladies ride in 15 (inch - from horn to cantle) seats unless they are heavy or tall or both. You should have three to four fingers of room when placing hand behind your seat against the cantle.

What is important for your horse is the size of the bars - whether to buy a semi or full QH (Quarter Horse) bar saddle. We own a AQHA gelding and a 7/8 QH grade gelding. The full QH is a stocky type and we bought this saddle for him. He requires the full QH bars. Our other horse has a narrower back and barrel, so he would take the semi QH bars, but we ride him mostly English.

It is not so easy to tell which will fit your horse best unless you can borrow a saddle from a friend who knows their saddle's bar spread -and- how to check fit so you can try it on your horse. If you are going to ride multiple horses of the stocky QH type, the full QH bar size is better; if the saddle is too big for one horse, you can put in a "shim" wither pad to make it sit correctly on the horse (which is what we do for the grade QH).

You can search the internet for "western saddle fitting" - there are several sites on how to pick the seat size for you and the bar size for your horse. American Saddle Makers has an extensive article on the western saddle.

Keep in mind that getting too narrow of bars is more of problem than too big. And you want your seat size to make the riding experience both pleasant (i.e. not "swimming" in too large a seat size or worse, being pinched in too small a seat) and allow you to be a more effective rider.

Ask if you have more questions, Stateline will notify us.

Does this come with front or back cinch?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
Best Answer: Oops, the saddle did not come with a cinch. I had to provide my own. Sorry for the incorrect answer.

My horse is a 27 years old quarter horse and slightly sway back. My current saddle appears to be rubbing on her spine at her hind quarters. Do you have any suggestions what would the best style be for her? I just do trail riding.
Joyce K on Aug 4, 2015
Best Answer: I would suggest lengthening your stirrups a little. It has been my experience that if the pad is thick enough, the back of the saddle won't rub if the rider is balanced in the correct position. Here is an example: my husband rides with short stirrups and I can't make him change as he is comfortable that way. The back of his English saddle was rubbing a sore on his horse's spine because the short stirrups forced his weight backward where it did not belong or over the loins, thus causing the sore. We cut a hole in a pad to relieve the pressure until the sore healed up and then he had to learn to ride with his stirrups a little longer to center his body at the correct point. Now, this may not exactly be your problem, so I think a light saddle such as the Wintec with a very thick pad would be a good solution.

Would the wintec Full Quarter Bars Western Saddle be suitable for my Haflinger?
richard d on Jul 6, 2015
Best Answer: I specifically purchased the Wintec western saddle for two Haflingers that I own. They are NASH horses, North American Spotted Haflingers and they have wide withers. I really like this saddle.
