The Wintec 500 Close Contact Saddle with CAIR or flocking has a modern, real leather look design with a flatter seat and the correct balance to help riders progress in their jumping. The Easy Change Fit Solution System gives you the flexibility to adjust the Wintec 500 Close Contact Saddle to fit multiple horses. Features of the Wintec 500 Close Contact Saddle include:

  • Flatter seat offering closer contact
  • Performance materials ensure superior fit, comfort and stability
  • Ergonomic, recessed stirrup bars reduce the lump of the stirrup leather
  • Fully adjustable FlexiBloc system; enables the rider to tailor their own knee support
  • Narrow waist ensures ultra close contact
  • Easy care; no oiling or waxing required; just wipe clean
  • Weatherproof and durable
  • Elastiflex tree to facilitate excellent communication
  • Choose: traditional flocking (can be reflocked) or the CAIR Panel System which provides maximum comfort for your horse with a 5 year guarantee.
  • Easy-Change Gullet System provides a custom fit for many different horses (ships with a medium gullet)
  • Easy Change Riser System
  • Lifetime guarantee on trees

    Now with the new Easy Change Fit Solution which combines the Easy Change Gullet System with the Easy Change Riser System for a total fitting solution! The new riser system allows you to alter the balance of the saddle by placing different sized riser inserts into the insert pockets in the new Wintec saddles. This can eliminate the need for riser pads, custom flocking and other saddle fit solutions.

    The Easy Change Fit Solution is the first total saddle fitting solution that not only enables full adjustment to be made to the saddle, but empowers riders to custom fit their saddles in a matter of minutes. Riders can select the optimal tree width for their horse's current shape using the Easy Change Gullet System or make adjustments within their saddle panel for optimal balance and clearance with the Easy Change Riser System. Together these systems offer unparalleled scope of adjustment for a total fitting solution that's not only easy, but measurable and completely reversible. Whether you are a serious competitor or simply ride horses for the joy of it, choosing a saddle with the Easy Change Fit Solution puts your horse's comfort first.

    PERFECTReview by Joannie Awtry from Daytona Beach
    I bought this saddle in hopes it would fit my very large Quarter horse mare as well as all the other different size horses I school and show at my barn. It fits great on all of them and mostly because you can change the gullet size! Not to mention this saddle is super flashy for not being real leather. Extremely hard to get dirty or even scratch. I always get compliments on it and my trainer even loves it!

    Better than I expected! Review by Grace from Texas
    It was finally time to replace my reliable, but ancient collegiate close contact and after much research, I decided to go with this saddle with the flocked panels. The saddle is extremely good looking and I already love how easy it is to clean. After a few rides, both my horse and I are very pleased with the fit and comfort. It gives the perfect amount of support for the rider without impending position, both on the flat and over fences. I feel reassured knowIng that I can adjust the fit with the gullet system and risers if my horse changes shape or if I use it on a different horse. I would highly recommend using the Wintec webbers instead of traditional stirrup leathers because the recessed stirrup bars make you fight to put on, take off, and adjust the length of the leathers! I recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a good quality saddle that doesn't wipe out your bank account!
