We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

The Wintec Pro Endurance Trail Saddle is the result of significant research and development. Designed with trail riders and high level Endurance riders in mind, this saddle includes some new groundbreaking patented innovations that offer significant performance advantages.

  • The FlexiContourbloc® is anatomically shaped to the rider's leg and can be moved and secured to support an individual rider's position.
  • A fixed rear bloc effortlessly supports and stabilizes the rider's leg
  • An ergonomic adjustable (3 position) stirrup bar enables customization to suit a rider's individual leg position and riding style.
  • EASY-CHANGE™ Gullet System for the capability to fit all tree sizes.

    Wintec Pro Endurance Trail Saddle is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Demo program is a farce I signed up for their demo saddle to be shipped to me and was told it was being returned on Friday so I would have it within 10 days. Two weeks later still no saddle. I called and was told it would be another week. Two weeks after that still no saddle. I called again was told it would be another week. .6 weeks later still no saddle. I called and canceled the order and canceled my monthly delivery of Smartpak vitamins. Of which my horse was on and coliced. I have had him five years and he had never coliced before.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely dis-satisfied I am extremely dis-satisfied with the saddle and the ordering experience. The saddle took 5 weeks to arrive, and despite repeated emails and phone calls to SmartPak, I was never given a solid delivery date, nor told it was back ordered. I was initially told it would take 2-3 weeks for the saddle to arrive, when I inquired, I was basically just told to wait and that there was nothing SmarkPak could do for me. When the saddle finally did arrive I was told that I couldn't ride in it without risking my ability to return the saddle - I was allowed to set it on the horse but not put on a girth. The kneeroll in the front of the saddle is HUGE, and after sitting in the saddle (on a saddle rack) I decided it did not allow me enough range of motion in the saddle. As I was not allowed to take it for a test ride, I decided the only thing I could do was return it. The only good part of the experience was the return process which was painless as SmartPak provided the return label promptly via email. I eventually bought a Wintec from Dover as they allow their customers to take a test ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trail Saddle Out of all the different trail saddles I have tried lately, I think I finally found a keeper! I've been riding in a test ride Wintec Pro Endurance 17" the past week. Although I really need a 17.5", it has a super comfy seat and the equisuede keeps me pretty glued in. The front block in front is not velcro, like I assumed, but slides back and forth and can be tightened in position based on your confirmation. The block behind your thigh is not as massive as it looks in the picture, and puts my leg in a quite comfortable position. The attachment bar for the stirrup leathers is also adjustable and can be moved forward and back for your comfort. At first, I had the stirrup bar all the way forward and although my stirrup leathers were at a comfortable length, my knee was hitting the front block constantly as I rode. I moved the stirrup bar back just one centimeter and my leg fit perfectly and was much more comfortable. Even though this saddle uses a dressage girth, you can use an all purpose saddle pad with it. (I would not want to go buy new saddle pads for this saddle - I own a million AP pads). The only things I do not like about this saddle, and they are both minor details is 1) it takes a dressage girth and I cannot tighten my horse's girth from up in the saddle like I can in my close contact saddle. 2) The keeper for the stirrup leather is the kind where it's just a slit in the saddle flap. I was playing around with my stirrup length while on my horse's back and it was quite tough to get the end of my stirrup leather back into that keeper while in the saddle. This could be because my leathers are lined and a bit thick. The equisuede made my ride a bit "friction-y" ladies, if you catch my drift, but I think if I was in a 17.5" that wouldn't be happening to me. I love that it is a trail saddle that uses english stirrup irons. Also, the fact that it has the adjustable gullet system, the easy fit panels, and the Y girthing system are all huge plusses. I am very impressed with the quality of this saddle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it!!! I bought this saddle a couple of months ago and am so very happy with it. I also purchased the gullet system (not available from SmartPak) and measured and changed it to better fit my horse. He is much happier. I ride an Arab and they are not always easy to fit. I had been using a treeless saddle, but sensed this was not the right choice for us. Jade is new to me and I am still building the foundation for our relationship. It was pretty amazing to feel the difference in him with a better saddle fit. He moves much more freely and he is much more relaxed. I feel making this change for him has does so much toward building trust between us. The saddle is a great fit for me as well. I am a trailrider and the light weight, cair pads, movable blocks and many rings for adding whatever is needed at the time are all wonderful. We do not appear to need risers at this time, but when I feel we do, I will order and add them.Thank you so much for carrying a wonderful product, and at such a good price.Judy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All Around Endurance/Pleasure Saddle I love this saddle so much! Smartpak was kind enough to make a test ride available on this model for me and I fell head over heals in love! My stallion enjoys it and it is so comfortable for long rides. One of the best things about wintec saddles is the easy care maintenance of the material (cleans up very easy) and the ability to change out the gullets to fit horses of various sizes. I was really looking for a pleasure saddle that I could ride in all weather conditions without the worries of long hours spent cleaning and treating leather. This is the one! I have included a picture below but as my husband took it with his phone the picture quality is not the best, but this saddle is a must have for anyone planning to pleasure, trail or endurance ride!
