We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle I purchased this saddle a month ago and so far i really like it. It does make some squeaking noises if you use leather stirrups with it but its not bad. The seat is very comfortable and I bough the changeable gullet system so I was able to fit it to my horse. It is a great price and good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good saddle I like this saddle. It fits my horse well with the extra wide gullet. BUT, I have long legs and the saddle doesn't fit me..I have an 18" (I should be in 17") seat and my knees are still hanging over the knee rolls. So, it's time for a new saddle for me. Anyway, this saddle is great for if you get caught in the rain because you can't mess it up! The gullets are pretty easy to change too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value This saddle is what I expected from Wintec - comfortable and reasonably priced - fits most of my Tb's. Incredibly this shipped to me in 3 days from my order - never had better service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit's the impossible horse My horse has HUGE withers and HUGE shoulders so finding a saddle that could sit in the right place, allow wither clearence, and not pinch his shoulders without speding a fortune for a custom saddle was proving to be impossible. At least until I looked into Wintec. Not only is my horse comfortable but so am I.The only downside is the stirrup bars. My stirrup lathers stay on fine except when I try to adjust them while in the saddle.
