Originally bought the wintec trail saddle and hated the padded stirrups so I returned it and went for this one instead. No bulky pads on the stirrups and no exposed screw heads like the trail version.

Wintec is light and great for covering lots of territory on a working ranch.

Originally this was bought by a friend who had a 17 hands + wide barrel racer paint. She did not like western and I bought it from her. I am using it on my 16.2 HH gelding and it really fits him better than the semi that I have. My husband is now using this Wintec saddle since mine is too small for him. It is a really fine saddle although it is heavier and I have a problem hoisting it over my tall boy! I am a short small female which is why I purchased a light weight saddle originally.

My first English saddle was a Wintec Saddle and 20 yrs later it still looks new and its so comfortable to ride in.

Paula O on Oct 30, 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.

Wanted light weight, affordable saddle.
William M on Feb 10, 2014

Would the wintec Full Quarter Bars Western Saddle be suitable for my Haflinger?
richard d on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know why not. The gutter is 7 1/2 ". I have used the saddle on an Arabian, Thorobred, and Quarter.
If I buy the Wintech western full saddle and want swivel stirrups to change to then which size stirrup top should I choose? 2 and 1/2 or 3 inch?
Audrey K on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend the 3 if you use short stirrups so you have extra space. I ended up putting more holes in the strap to get them short enough since you add about 1 inch. If your stirrups are long you could use 2-1/2. Hope this makes sense
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.
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 have this saddle in semi quarter horse It is a little small in the withers for my boy, would the full quarter be wider in the withers?
Linda B on Sep 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The full QH bars are VERY wide & really need a wide body horse or just low/mutton withers. I got this one when my horse all of a sudden outgrew his saddle with regular QH bars. It fits him perfectly now. Very nice saddle. I like Wintec saddles because you can't hurt 'em!
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.

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.
For a gaited horse?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't know if ok for gaited. It is really wide, wider than a full qtr saddle. I have a horse that MAY be gaited but is going thru a therapy shoeing to try and correct his gait right now. I have been looking at endurance type saddles for gaited horses but haven't tested any yet. So I don't have anything to compare it with. Sorry I an't be more help.
is this saddle wide tree?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I assumed from the description that the saddle was a wide tree because it was called a "full quarter". When I received the saddle it was not wide enough for my mare, a Percheron cross, and so I sent it back in late October 2016.
what is the meaning of full quarter and semi quarter?
peter r on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The full, semi, and regular refers to the pitch of the bars, the angle they're at. REGULAR bars will fit the largest variety of horses. the semi quarterhorse bars are more for the thinner, lighter build horses such as Saddlebreds, etc. They will also fit most young horses. For the wide bodied horse, you'll be wanting the full quarterhorse bars. Depending on the build of the horse, sometimes the full bars will also work on a smaller horse. I have found the Wintec Western saddles to be awesome! The ultra suede seat gives great stick. I have never come off of a Wintec, and my guy used to regularly buck when asked to Whoa from a lope or gallop! I've resold a few, and they hold their value. I always get back what I paid for them. You can't hurt these saddles! I love them! If you have a thin horse, get the semi QH bars. For a thicker horse, go with the Full QH bars.
Hope this helps!
does it come with a girth?
I'm a new horse rider!
miley k on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it does not come with a girth.
I have an 18 yr old mustang, he has a short back would this be a good saddle for him?
sherry t on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I HAve a short back appaloosaa mare and it fits her perfect. I did reorder the semi qtr horse bars and it fits her much better than the full qtr horse bars did. Unless your horse is extremely broad thru thr shoulders I would suggest ordering the semi qtr horse bars saddle. These saddles are awesome. Very comfortable. The ownly thing I did when I first got it was to turn the fenders and put a stick thru the e stirrups to get them into the correct position.
I have a 1/2 arab and 1/2 saddlebred older mare with higher whithers, should I purchase full QH bars or 1/2 QH bars?
Patti C on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 1/2 QH bars would be better for high, narrow withers. You could take wither measurements and check them out.

Synthetic or wooden tree?
James H on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure but my horses seem to like it.
Is 15,16,&17 seat lengths?
Kurrriii on Jul 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Measured from pommel to cantel. I am 5'3" and weigh 110 lbs. I use a 15" seat because it is the smallest adult size and it is just a little bit large for me.
I'm looking at SLT735080 in a 16inch how wide is the twist on it I need narrow??
Robin H on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not really sure where to measure for twist.. I know that this saddle seems to be a good fit for a variety of sizes, although the other horses I know that used the same saddle were bigger or slightly wider than my horse. I have a 15 hand QH. She is just average size all around. I think it should fit a narrower horse too. The saddle is very flexible.
=( No 14" ?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi:
I bought a 17 but it has 16 stamped on the saddle. It fits me well but not great. I'm 5' 8" and 225 lbs. It is very light to handle. I ride for 3 hours two times a week. I will say after 3 hours I do not feel comfortable sitting in the saddle. I start trying to get more comfortable at the 2 hour mark on my ride. I think maybe I would have done better getting a 15 saddle. I even tried a saddle pad it didn't help. I hope this helps.
Looking for a saddle for my Gypsy Vanner that will fit him & is easy for me to lift?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It fits my stocky quarter horse but it is rather stiff and is heavier than a synthetic big horn that I had. The big horn saddle was too small at the withers. I have had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders and it is hard for me to lift it up on him. I am using it Hope this helps.
what is the metal piece called that adjusts the boot straps?
A shopper on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is called a stirrup buckle.
Does it come with latigo and off billet?
alexis k on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought his saddle and returned it. Look at the wintec trail saddle. I ordered it. More saddle for just a few more dollars. Extra padding in the seat, trail stirrups, long nylon strings, so glad I sent the other one back.
Is this the all rounder model?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes..full quarter also

angela c on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bars: Full Quarter Horse Gullet: 6 3/4" W x 7 3/4" H

A shopper on Mar 27, 2016

A shopper on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: no
