    Yes...I'm planning to order new. Haven't found a trial on this saddle anywhere. If you ride in it, you bought it. Definitely leaning toward the Vienna in a wide tree, 17 inch seat. Are you about...
  2. Thanks, everyone! These replies have been most...

    Thanks, everyone! These replies have been most helpful. I am really leaning toward the Vienna....because I had one before and liked it a lot...and it fit my mare well. I also like the grainier...

    Shall, from the photos I've seen online, I thought the Vienna had the deeper seat, but you say the Danube is deeper? I figured with the more forward cut flap on the Danube, I'd have more room for...
  4. Thanks, shall. Did you have a hard time getting...

    Thanks, shall. Did you have a hard time getting your legs to hang straight down in the Danube, since the flap is cut more forward...almost but not quite an AP position? Also, do you think a wide...
  5. Thornhill Vienna II vs. Thornhill Danube dressage saddles?

    Has anyone had experience with both of these saddles? They are both built on a hoop tree, so I think they would both fit my Arab pretty well. Any opinions as far as rider comfort, fit, quality,...
  6. Horseware Amigo Hero 6 vs. Horsewear Mio?

    The Amigo Hero 6 fits my mare wonderfully. Would like to get a second sheet for her. The Mio sheets are much cheaper...but from the description they sound just like the Amigos! Has anyone had...
  7. Purina Equine Senior or Nutrena SafeChoice Senior ?

    For those of you who have used both of these feeds....which did you prefer, and why? Please...only comments on these two feeds. Thanks!

    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?

    Actually. ...I guess I don't care if I can add shims. There are few different versions of Prolite pads.....I'm specifically interested in the Dressage Relief pad......how thick is it, and is it...

    Indy....I also need something that doesn't affect saddle fit. ..as in making it more narrow....and does the Equine Comfort Pad protect the horse's back well?

    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...
  14. Thanks so much, everyone. Here is another...

    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?
  20. 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...

    Original poster here. Beowulf, thanks so much for another very informative post. I agree with you. And you really are right about one thing.......the main reason I wanted the CAIR/changeable gullet...

    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...
  24. Netg.....wool panels are just as thick.....plus,...

    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...
  25. 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...
