I purchased this saddle in size 18 to fit my big Belgian draft. This is the second Wintec saddle I have used on my horse. Great fit, comfortable, and a most practical solution for lesson students.

I'm 55 and have had neck surgery. Need something with deep seat very nervous about going off. I'm not the best English rider, but I need to start again for points. Would you recommend this saddle?
Elizabeth A on Aug 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I also have neck issues. I have lower back issues. This saddle was so uncomfortable and painful to me that I do not use it at all. It's just setting, unused in the barn. I found the best solution for me was to use a bareback pad (cushioned) with no stirrups. I feel safer than I would with that stiff English saddle. Sounds like you need to use an English saddle. I'd suggest you find a way to try it out first on your horse. The saddle needs to fit the horse just as much as the rider. Just my two cents worth: One should be nervous about ridding again at 55. We're not flexible nor bouncy, like kids. I'm 73. When a horse throws one there is usually momentum involved, and quite a bit of it. There is distance from the ground involved. Quite a chancy situation. Everyone falls, even the best riders. I still ride realizing that I'm taking a chance that a rabbit won't jump out, or my horse might be having a bad day.
How much are the gullets? Does it comes with the one we choose? Can I order it with size wide to extra wide ?
Ana G on Apr 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have attached the item number for the replacement gullet, so you can look over sizes and cost for item.
How long before you will have the 17.5 in brown?
Miki B on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not currently have an estimated in stock date for this saddle in a 17.5.
Does the 2000 have a narrower twist than the pro?
Miki B on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I can only compare it to the Wintec Dressage Pro; the Wintec 2000 does have a narrower twist that the Wintec Dressage Pro, in my experience.
Does this saddle come with a gullet gauge?
A shopper on May 16, 2018
does this saddle have leather billets?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: nope. I had no difficulty with the billets. A word of caution about the CAIR, though. The CAIR panels are what they are; the user is supposed to be able to tweak fit with the different thicknesses of pads. It's not a bad product, but the flocked ones ARE more adjustable, albeit by a saddle fitter and not by the user. Are you confident you can fit those pads? I was not. That said, the saddle served me well until I bought my horse. Bon Chance.
Does this have the longer billets (much like a dressage saddle) or shorter bullets under the saddle?
Anna D on Oct 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This saddle has the shorter billets.
What is the difference between the Wintec 500 and the wintec 2000?

Wintec 2000 All Purpose Saddle CAIR
Wintec 2000 All Purpose Saddle CAIR
Wintec 500 All Purpose Saddle CAIR
Wintec 500 All Purpose Saddle CAIR
BEST ANSWER: They are very similar. The biggest difference is the amount of Equisuede: the 2000 has it on both the seat and knee rolls, as well as the underside of the panels. The 500 has Equisuede on the knee rolls only.
does the saddle fit a TWH mare?
Roberto on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is hard to say whether the saddle will be a perfect fit for your mare. Every horse is different and it is always best to have a saddle fitter, or someone who is experienced, look at the saddle on your horse to see if it is a good fit. Fortunately, this particular saddle has the Easy-Change Gullet System, so you can adjust the gullet to fit your horse's back. The Wintec 2000 comes with a medium sized gullet (blue gullet insert). You can purchase the Easy-Change Gullet System which includes a Gullet Gauge to use in order to find the right gullet size for your horse. I hope this helps.
What is the difference between the Wintec 500 All Purpose with CAIR, Wintec 2000 All Purpose with CAIR,and the Wintec Pro All Purpose with CAIR ? I'm an intermediate level rider that does pleasure, trail, dressage, and jumping. I'm looking into my first Saddle Purchase, I'm tired of using my friends saddle that isn't the right fit.

BEST ANSWER: I don't really know what the differences are in the saddles, I would think customer service would be able to answer that. I bought mine on the advise of my trainer and just love it and all the neat features it has.
does this come fully mounted and have the aussie flag on the back for this price?
Gael M on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This saddle is sold less fittings. We offer Wintec leathers and webbers, girths, comfort pads, and gullet plates separately.
If you are looking for the removable cantle, that feature comes with the WintecLite saddles (items E012315 and E012316). Those two saddles come with the removable American Flag cantle.
can this saddle be refoamed?

Hi There. How can I determine what is the best saddle size for me? I'm 5ft / 8inches and 160lbs, so what would be the correct saddle size to fits me?
Gerson on Aug 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have this saddle and I am 5'5" and 125#. It's really to small for me so I have it for sale now. It is made more for ponies and children in my opinion. I have a Tennesee Walker that is 14 hands.
I have a friend that uses a Wintec 17 and that fits me a lot better.
So I would say you would definitely need a larger size.
Hope that helps you!
