      Comments about Wintec New Generation Close Contact Saddle:

      The only negative I could say is that the seat isn't as comfortable as I would like. The saddle looks good and rides good. Perfect for the money spent.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Well packaged.

            Lovely saddle! Very good construction and durable. I plan to use this for trail rides on my dressage horse. It is lightweight. I had a wintec western for 15 yrs and I expect this saddle to last just as long!

            It has a closer feel than most saddles and as an english rider this was very important to me.

            • Q:

              Are the sizes based on seat sizes? I ride English, so I am not familiar with Western sizing. How would the seat sizing compare to an English dressage saddle?

                A:

                The average size of a Western saddle for an adult is 15.5-16" seat. The rule of thumb is to subtract 2 inches from the hunts seat saddle size you would ride in.

                My dressage saddle is a 15 and so is this western saddle that I bought. They do measure the same way. Happy riding!

                Kathie.. my husband rides Western and me English not sure of your body size but the seat size I use western is 15 1/2 to 16. I've had Dressage and AP saddles that ranged from 16.5 to 17.5 so there is a big difference when going to Western. If you get bigger than 16 in Western you gonna be swimming in it unless you are more full figured and have hips and behind. I'm 5'6 and I've always had skinny legs and no behind much so 16 in a Western is where the road stops for me. I hope this helps you.

                A:

                Might be a bit wide depending on how the horse is built. Wintec has a full bar that will measure around 7 ½" across.

                We don't see why it won't fit your donkey. But we guarantee the fit. If for any reason you don't like it please contact us and we will pick it up.

            • Q:

              How does this material compare to Nylon Cordura for keeping its looks, long lasting wear & getting wet on trails. Also, it states it comes with full quarter horse bars, can you please give me an accurate measurement on that. I ride stocky foundation quarter horses and truly do need nothing less than the full 7 to 7 1/2" bars. Thank you, lee
