RIDE OUT THE RECESSION IN WINTEC’S NEW, AFFORDABLE WESTERN SADDLES

The economy is taking its toll on everyone.

 Horse owners can cut back on lessons and shows, but can’t cut back on the lifestyle. To save money and continue spending time in the saddle, many Western and English horse owners are trail riding now more than ever. For riders who are looking for a quality alternative to leather saddles, Wintec has two new Western saddles.

The new Wintec Easy Ride Saddle and Wintec Barrel Saddle are affordable, easy-care and lightweight synthetic saddles for today’s discerning, cost-conscious riders. Both feature a comfortable and washable Equi-Suede seat; rugged, stainless steel hardware and are crafted in tough Duraleather, which can be used in the rain, resists stains, and can be cleaned with just a little soap and water.

 The Wintec Easy Ride Saddle also features handsome, stamped conchos and a cutaway skirt for a comfortable, easy ride. This saddle is available in 14 inches, 15 inches, 16 inches and 17 inches in black or brown and is distributed by Partrade.
