Oh My Dog I love this saddle. Been researching for about three months before I bought it. Very satisfied customer. Am too old to be lifting heavy saddles anymore, and this one is light. CAIR panels are everything the company says they are. Comfortable for me and my animal. I ride a 15hh donkey, and donkeys by nature have narrow withers, so most saddles slide and roll and move, especially on mounting, but this saddle is secure. I'm a trail rider from Silver City, NM, and there are plenty of rings on this saddle for attaching saddle bags, britchens, water bottles, extra reins, etc. Gullet system fit my animal, so I didn't purchase the gullet kit, but I would have had the saddle's gullet been too wide or too narrow. Initially I thought this saddle was way too expensive, but now that I've used it, I'd say it has been worth every penny.

Love this saddle
I have tried numerous saddles trying to fit my short back Paso and me! I think I have finally found it! I love the Cair panels that adjust to my horse's back. The saddle is very comfortable for me and has a very secure seat! Knowing that I can make changes to the saddle as my boy changes shape, is another plus! Love it!

Perfect for all around riding
If you need an extra-wide gullet, make sure you order the new model. The previous model was not designed for an extra-wide gullet, otherwise, I would have purchased this saddle years ago. I just love this saddle. It has many awesome features and is extremely comfortable. It's better than a dressage saddle because it has a deeper seat, wider channel and panels. Perfect for trail, pleasure, arena, hacking, and dressage riding if you don't show. A great value for the price!

Awesome saddle
I love my saddle! It is super comfy and had great grip. It keeps me more secure in my seat. And not to mention it looks great!! I love how easy it is to care for as well. Just hose it off and let it dry. The changeable gullets is the icing on the cake. No more multiple saddles for my horse depending on the seasons and how wide or thin she is (within reason of course).

Great safe and secure trail saddle
Very comfortable and grippy seat; love the security of the thigh poleys. Not bulky; close contact feel; does not force you into a chair seat. Great looking saddle. Good value for the $$

Great Saddle!
I went through tons of saddles trying to fit my gelding. I love this saddle. It is lightweight, easy to clean, secure, and best of all it fits me and my horse. Whether he is fuller from the winter months or slimmer after a long riding season. Changing the gullet to fit him is so ideal. I would highly recommend. It is worth it.

Beautiful and comfortable
This is the most comfortable, secure saddle I have ever ridden; the material offers easy cleaning, great looks and good seat grip. The gullet change system I added makes it very versatile. Well built, worth every cent I spent on it!

Is a dressage pad long enough (under the fenders) to be used with this saddle?
TOM & ELISA H on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It's a great saddle, and I use a dressage pad under mine, as well as a 100% wool pad that I use when I ride the trails and carry saddlebags. I have a friend who lives in Las Cruces who has the same saddle but two years older than mine, and she uses a half sized dressage but wishes she had bought the full one. If you'd like pix, send me a pm on fb, and I'll send you a couple so you can see how the saddle fits the pads.

What type of stirrup leathers can you use on this saddle--looks like regular leathers do not work. Also will a dressage girth work or does this take a special girth?
Trudy O on Dec 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought Wintec's Webbers 28" and they're perfect. Easy to attach. I'm 5'3" and the length of these Webbers is perfect for me. I bought a dressage girth, and I cannot remember exactly the brand, but it's got nice wool covering its entire length and extends beyond the buckles so that the animal never feels the rub of the buckle. You can look at the pix of this saddle to see the length of the girth ties. They're long, so you should measure girth size with that info in mind. I ordered my saddle first and put it on my animal's back so that I could get the right girth size. I absolutely love this saddle and all the extras I bought. I wrote a review for this saddle on's page, and if you go there, I think I included the name of the girth. Good Luck. Barbara Gorzycki in Silver City, NM
I have a very wide foundation built quarter this saddle the wide ? Can it accomodate extra wide gullet system if needed ?
Tracey M on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can change the gullet system to widen or make it smaller you need to buy the change out system separate. I love the saddle.
How much does this saddle weigh? TY
Tim M on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It weighs approximately 17-18 lbs depending on the size.
I cannot decide what size saddle in the Wintec Australian stock saddle would fit me best. I have ridden in a 17 inch English which I loved, and a 16 inch western which is a bit big so far. What would you suggest, m or l? 5'6 140lbs
