    Default Anyone ride in a Wintec Pro Stock CS or Endurance saddle?

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


    Anyone have experience with these? Would love some reviews!

    I like to check

    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.
    Tell a Gelding. Ask a Stallion. Discuss it with a Mare... Pray if it's a Pony!
