    Default I give up! Need help finding a black Wintec Pro Jump or similar saddle

    I have been hunting for months. I stupidly sold my beloved Pro Jump when I retired my horse 2 years ago thinking NBD I can just buy a new one when I'm ready. Well they changed them! Ewwwww! I CAN NOT find a black old version of the Pro Jump ANYWHERE!! I'm desperate as I have our first combined test in 3 weeks and no jump saddle! If anyone is bored (college kids procrastinating during finals, bored at work, can't sleep...I'm talking to you! :-)) would you please help me hunt! Check your local classifieds. I case EBay US, UK, Ireland and Australia like a crazy lunatic all hours of the day. Tacktrader. Bits and Barter. Nada. Nothing. ZILTCH! So if you're bored scour your local classifieds for either a black Wintec Pro Jump, Wintec Matt Ryan or any black flatter seat saddle with a forward flap and a nice wide channel for her back. Must be on a tree that's adjustable by either me or a Saddlefitter as she's a growing girl. Budget under $750 so old and beatup is just fine! I need your eyes as mine have gone crossed trying to find this elusive saddle! Thanks guys! I'm desperate!!

    Will dark brown really not work?

    Black, in AU, looks like it may have been posted a while ago

    I don't know what mounted vs. unmounted means in AU lingo?

    This site has the old Wintec XC that people rave about. It says "several months waiting time" but could very well be worth it for those who really love the saddle:

    Other options to check out would be saddles like the Ainsley Chester, Ainsley Pro National, Jeffries JMX (although that likely won't be in your budget), thornhill lemonde, Jeffries flyover, and the Albion Kontrol XC model. The Albion and the one Jeffries will be hard to find in your budget; the rest should be pretty easy, particularly if you're willing to beg UK sellers to ship over seas. All of these classic English-made saddles don't have adjustable trees in the way the wintec's do, but they will all be wool flocked (maybe not the thornhill?) which allows for adjustment, and most of the wood spring trees can be bumped up a size or two once or twice, by a saddler who knows what they're doing.

    Thank you! I emailed on most of those with no response or won't ship to US but one of the Gumtree was new to me! Just sent an email! If I absolutely can't find black I would do a brown one but I figure there MUST be a black one out there somewhere! Right?! I hope! LOL Thanks for the links! Hopefully the new Gumtree will prove successful! Fingers crossed! :-D
