Have had one for years. It is showing its age.
PETER C on Feb 7, 2015
After many years of service, my 2000 has finally died :( I am going to replace it with another Wintec because I love their product but I am trying to figure out the difference between the 2000 & the 500. Can you break down the differences please?

BEST ANSWER: 2000 Key Features: Drop panel points; Equi-Suede seat and shaped knee insert; Equi-Grip panel; Deeper Seat
500 Key Features: Shaped Equi-Suede knee insert; Drop panel points; Equi-Grip panel
Are the stirrups sold separately?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: To Person asking the question - no they are not. You need to buy leathers and stirrups.
Flocked or cair?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The panels are flocked.
why is it 13.2 pounds in the discription and a whopping 29 pounds for shipping. Surely 14lbs isnt just the box?
chelsea l on Dec 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Shipping carriers charge not only by a box's weight but also by its' dimensions. Both the size and weight of packages factors into how many can fit on a truck or in a container.
I think we need a wide gullet do we buy that as extra?
Lisa A on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Additional gullets would need to be purchased separately.
Is this item additional 30 % off as advertised 30% off total order??
A shopper on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is not. Wintec has set the lowest price possible as 11% below list price. When this item is added to the cart, a message comes up in red: "Additional discount restricted by Manufacturer."
What accounts for the weight difference between the Wintec 250, with a shipping weight of 12 lbs, and the Wintec 500, with a shipping weight of 29 lbs.? 17 lbs. difference is huge, particularly for a pony, so I need to know if the difference is in the shipping materials or the saddle itself.
Alice L on Feb 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The difference is going to be in the shipping materials and carrier, not the saddle itself.
