    Indy...thanks. The Air Ride may work well and it's a decent price. I just don't want anything bulky under the saddle.

    Has anyone also had good luck with the Prolite keeping the saddle from slipping, either forward or side to side? and did it make a definite difference in how your horse felt under saddle?

    Prolite Dressage Relief Pad

    Considering getting a half pad. How thick is this version of a Prolite pad? Does it help with saddle stability? Is it spine free? Is it shimmable? Im trying to decide between this or the Thinline...

    Thanks so much, everyone. Here is another response from Wintec when I asked what happens if the saddle needs reflocking:

    "Flock panels can be easily replaced if needed. The flock panels are...

    Okay. I've had CAIR before, haven't had problems except some rub marks on my mare's loins. Could this be from the CAIR panels...do they tend to be harder than the wool flocked one? Here is what...

    no.stirrups.......see my other post, too. So if ordering new, as a saddlefitter, would you recommend the CAIR or the flocked panels? Which may be easier to swap out, since the Wintec rep said both...

    no.stirrups.........so if I'm ordering a new Wintec Pro.....figuring I will change it over to wool eventually.....would I be better getting the CAIR panels (hopefully they are good for a couple of...

    Thanks, Melissa......I figured it was. I might as well get the CAIR panels, then. I tried a Thorowgood T4.....Broadback and Standard models, and the panels do not fit my horses back. When girthed...

    I feel the same way, sabinomare! I'm just about to get another new Wintec Pro. Did you get the CAIR or flocked panels?
  13. Flocked Panels on new Wintecs not adjustable ???!!

    After another thread regarding CAIR....I decided to go with the flocked panels if I get a new Wintec Pro Dressage saddle. However, heard this back from a Wintec rep:

    "Essentially, yes, flocking in...

    Beowulf, thanks for a knowledgeable, hands on explanation. So that being said, what do you think are the best applications for these panels? If the saddle is to be used on the same horse, not...

    Okay....so nobody so far likes the CAIR panels. So, if you were ordering a new Wintec saddle (I rode in a friend's Pro and loved it)......you would definitely get the flocking? I don't think...

    Netg.....wool panels are just as thick.....plus, people add pads underneath, and many times the pads are some type of foam. So you end up with more bulk/less stability than just the CAIR panels (plus...
  18. CAIR panels = open cell foam...a good thing, right?

    I know there's lots of discussions about CAIR panels. After reading on the CAIR website....the CAIR panels are actually made of open cell foam. (Which is what Thinline pads are made of) So, they...

    Wintec gullet fit

    For a Wintec saddle to fit properly, should I be able to take the gullet plate, by itself, and fit it right down over the withers? I watched the Thorowgood video where the fitter takes a Thorowgood...

    Thorowgood T4 and T8 Dressage Saddles?

    Is anyone familiar with both of these? Are the trees/panels the same? I am interested in the standard, regular wither model.
