    Wintec 250 All Purpose Saddle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many reasons to love this saddle! I bought and fell in love with this saddle for many reasons:Price:Being on a budget (aren't we all?), I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a saddle that might just be for "in the meantime" (more on that later). The price was very attractive, and the test ride option allowed me to take the plunge with an exit strategy if needs be.Fit/Ability for Adjustment:After my older mare had a long vacation due to health reasons, she lost some muscling in her topline, and our old saddle no longer fit quite right. I figured the Easy Change Gullet System would allow me to adjust the saddle to fit her not only at the start of reconditioning, but as her topline continued to change.Lightweight:When the saddle arrived, I was also very impressed with how lightweight it was compared to our old leather saddle. I figured this was an added bonus because it would be lighter on my horse's back (she's a sensitive senior after all), and also easier for me to carry since I have chronic pain issues.Ease of Care:I currently work full time and go to school semi-full time, plus have a husband, a number of four-legged children, and sometimes a social life outside of the barn. Because I'm always pressed for time, the fact that a synthetic saddle is more low maintenance than a leather saddle was very appealing. After my morning ride, I can quickly wipe down the saddle before putting it away and then running off to class or work.Other thoughts:I read some reviews that suggested the saddle (or at least the matching stirrup leathers) would be squeaky, but was very pleasantly surprised when even brand new, there was no squeak! The saddle is very comfortable, and I also personally find it to be a pretty attractive model (although I don't feel that way about all of the Wintec models). After a fair amount of use during the last 6 months I've had it, the saddle still looks brand new! I've really fallen in love with this saddle, and I think it's safe to say that my horse has too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Saddle - Hated the Service The Wintec saddle is an excellent value. I bought it because I had more horses than I had English saddles and if we all rode English, I was a saddle short. It's comfy, makes you feel really secure, and is adjustable, so I can use it on any of my New Forest Ponies. Unfortunately, we did a test ride saddle and it was too big and returning it and getting the smaller size was a complete fiasco that went on for almost two months. I will say the SmartPak made it right in the end, but you might want to be cautioned if you try a test ride and need to exchange the saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to care for I've had this saddle for about six years now, and it has held up very well. I love that it requires no cleaning over that a wet rag every once in awhile. It is great for schooling, as it is very durable and you don't have to worry about it getting wet. It's a very well-made saddle. The only issue I've had is that I wore a hole through the knee roll. Otherwise, I highly recommend this saddle. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Thing I Own I decided to buy a saddle because every saddle my instructor had was too small for me. I love Wintecs, so I decided to try buying this saddle. I was in love with it from ride 1. It is probably the most comfortable saddle that I have ridden in. I have used it in the sun, the rain, the snow, and every type of weather in between. It still looks brand new and I have only ever wiped it down, never fully cleaning it. Although it was a little out of a freshman in high schools price range (when I got it), it has to be my favorite purchase by far. I hope to have it for many years to come and I will be recommending it to everyone who is looking for a saddle!
