WintecLite Saddle
Just so you know --- this saddle does HAVE an american flag on the back of the seat (as shown in the picture)... I am normally a 16" in a western seat so I ordered a 18" and it was way too big...Overall the saddle seems super comfy, and light weight, and the panels seem so nice for the horses back... the american flag just really bothered me and the size... So I am returning it - and finding one without the american flag or getting at 17" seat.
