The Wintec Pro Endurance Saddle has been designed to meet the high demands and rigors of endurance riding while maintaining comfort for both the horse and rider.It’s widely known in endurance circles that Arabs make some of the best endurance horses. So when the Arabian Horse Association officially chooses an endurance saddle, it’s a big deal. And now the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) has selected the new Wintec Pro Endurance Saddle as its Official Endurance Saddle. To celebrate the designation, Wintec, the world’s number-one synthetic saddle brand, is donating five Wintec Pro Endurance Saddles to be given as prizes at the American Horse Association Distance Nationals, October 24–28, 2013, in Chandlerville, Illinois. “We are thrilled to have Wintec as a sponsor and to be able to share its top-quality products with AHA members. Wintec has been the leader in producing high-quality synthetic saddles for years,” said Bill Harless, Senior Director of Marketing and Sales for AHA. “We appreciate the company’s commitment to helping us provide superior awards to our endurance and distance riders.” The cutting-edge design of the new Wintec Pro Endurance Saddle is made to stand up to the high demands and rigors of endurance riding. It features innovations that ensure unprecedented comfort for both horse and rider as well as being weatherproof and offering hassle free maintenance. “AHA has long supported the Arabian, Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses in all disciplines, and we are thrilled to establish
a relationship with such a well-recognized association,” said Ron Bates, Managing Director, Wintec Saddles. “It is vital that our partners genuinely believe in our saddles and working alongside organizations of AHA’s stature is key in our pursuit to deliver saddles with real performance benefits for both horse and rider.” For the rider, Wintec’s revolutionary FlexiContourbloc® offers customized support and exceptional security in the saddle, while the roomy seat allows for position changes during long rides. An adjustable ergonomic stirrup bar enables closer contact, maximizes comfort and allows for better balance in the saddle. The lightweight saddle weighs just over 12 pounds and has a large bearing area to ensure rider weight distribution over a greater surface area. It comes with the CAIR® Cushion System that adapts to the horse’s working muscles, provides even weight distribution and eliminates pressure points. The EASY-CHANGE® Fit-Solution allows the saddle to be able to be fitted to a wide range of horses, and the adjustable Y-girthing system greatly improves saddle stability.
