We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Wintec 500 All Purpose Saddle is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wintec All Purpose Saddle I've been using the Wintec All Purpose saddle for 3 months now and I love it. It's comfortable, and with the adjustable gullet - it fits perfectly. As an extra bonus, myself and others have noticed that my posture is better with this saddle. This saddle is inexpensive and a great saddle for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle This Wintec saddle is really nice. :-) It drys quickly. The padded rolls are nice. :) I like the D rings on the back of this saddle so I can tie my Parelli halter and 22' line to the saddle. The gullet is very easy to change. The only thing I don't like is the short billet straps. Overall this is a great saddle!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Time Was A Winner! I had just got the saddle out of the box and LOVED the look. But then i take my first ride in it and it fits me perfect! It is very easy to moved in. Also i love the synthetic! it was so easy to run a cloth over to clean up a little dirt. Overall the saddle is pretty great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat the changeable gullet! We tried this through Smart Pak's trial saddle program (thank you for having that, Smart Pak!). My daughter's Arabian has been extremely difficult to fit in the withers and the saddle's channel. The Wintec is the first saddle we have tried (in a long line of saddles this winter...) that let him bring his back up. Her first ride in it was great! She thought it was very comfortable, and the horse brought his back up and was in frame without my daughter having to do much of anything. Usually she has to work to get him there. We are very excited to use this saddle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle I have had this saddle for about 6 months and I love it. I have had other Wintec saddles and they did not fit me well but I had been told that the newer design had a different fit so I decided to do the 'test ride' program and really glad I did. The changeable gullet is great along with the riser system makes this saddle perfect for the young changing horse. I would definitely recommend this saddle as it is a super buy and really comfortable. Since English is my second discipline and I have already been through 4 saddles for my horse I am really glad I chose to try this saddle. Definitely recommend this item!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good This saddle was my very first saddle. It was very nice looking, and fairly comfortable. But honestly I was so excited to have an english saddle I wouldn't have cared if it were a cheap nothing saddle. I outgrew this saddle very quickly. As in, within the first 6 months. It is a good saddle, so I would recommend it. But don't do not plan on growing any if you do buy it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Saddle! I recently purchased this saddle in black, with the CAIR panels. It's very comfortable on long trail rides, and my horse has no complaints, either! It seems to be very well constructed, and I suspect it will be quite durable, as other Wintec saddles I have used in the past have proven to be! I also love the fact that it is about as low-maintenance as they come; after a rainstorm, a quick wipe with a slightly damp towel is all that's needed to remove mud. Way to go, Wintec-and thanks, Smartpak, for the super-quick shipping!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
