Wintec New Generation Close Contact Western Saddle is rated
Rated 5 out of
This is my favorite saddle.
This is the best light-weight western saddle I could find for my wide-ribbed half-Arabian. It is fabric, rather than fake leather like the regular Wintec western; i like The fabric because it is less slippery and the fenders are more flexible. Though I did add stirrup turners to aid in recovering a lost stirrup. It does get dusty, but I care more about function than looks.
I couldn’t buy this from SmartPak because I needed a size 14 with the shorter fenders. (I’m 5’2” 115 lb)
For some reason SP doesn’t carry the 14”. But it is available elsewhere.

I have had this saddle for 6 months still looks like new. For the price its a nice saddle but the seat could be more padded.

Idea seems great but saddle is a piece of junk. Came basically crushed in the box and I was very disappointed. Very wide as well so did not fit my wide quarter horse. It went back immediately. Sorry, usually I love everything I get from smart pak
