The Wintec Isabell Werth Dressage Saddle

I bought the Wintec Isabell dressage saddle online off a website for $1800 CAN. I was looking for an inexpensive second saddle for my young horse who is still growing and needed something affordable but of decent quality that could be adjusted as my horse grows.

I have to admit I never thought I would buy a Wintec but I am pleasantly surprised by the Isabell’s design and function.  The Isabel Wintec has removable thigh blocks that are well positioned to properly align the leg.   The deep seat is a huge bonus!  It offers a secure feeling without being forced.    It is light weight and easy to store as it is a synthetic saddle so you don’t have to worry about mold or washing.

The best part aside from the price is it is fully adjustable!  It comes with 4 different exchangeable gullet sizes that are easy to change.  So as my horse changes, so can my saddle.  Also if you lose one, any or all you can just buy and replace the gullet package for $100 which is much cheaper than having a saddle fitter come out and adjust your saddle.

Wintec has been around for a long time and has built a reputation for their synthetic saddles world wide.  I am very happy with the construction, I truly believe I got my monies worth with this saddle.  Isabel Werth is one of the top international dressage riders in the world and she endorses this saddle.  It was designed by her to put the rider in an optimal position with both seat and leg.

The only thing I can really complain about is no matter what it still is not real leather.  In my opinion it makes it feel and look a bit cheap even though it has good construction and workmanship.   Also I do find the thigh blocks a little hard, and especially on my young horse it tends to rub the inside of my knee a little when I do sitting trot.

I would however definitely recommend this product to anyone in need of a well designed well priced dressage saddle.
