Was looking into these for trail riding for my Mom (5'10", rides a gaited mare)

I like to check http://www.horsetackreview.com/

Everyone has different experiences, but at least it gives you an idea.

I thought the Wintec Endurance seemed to fit narrower than the other models, but like the greater weight distribution and extra D-rings. A couple of folks at my barn have them and like them better than the other Wintecs.

I personally can't stand the poleys on the Aussie-style saddles. They feel constrictive and I feel like I'm trapped.

I've ridden in an older, pre-CAIR version of the second one posted. I loooved it, so comfy. And the extended panels were good for the horse, more weight distributed over a larger surface.

I'm not a fan of the CAIR system however, so I'd try and find an older one on ebay or something that was pre-CAIR. BUT some folks love the CAIR, so I guess it just varies. :)
