Are Wintec saddles hated by jumpers, and are they good for jumping? I went to a horse show and I saw that everyone riding English had Winter saddles. I thought those were hated by jumpers.

I love my wintec for jumping, there isn’t really a brand that’s hated by jumpers, it really depends on what fits your body type. Wintec also makes multiple different types of saddles but their jumper ones are really nice to jump in as well as their close contact and all purpose for lower heights (under 2.6)
Hello Audrey,

I think they are great until a certain level, when you start jumping higher with a more technical aspect, I think it's better to have a great leather saddle. But they are still good for jumping!
