I'm doing a spot of pony squishing and wanted a lightweight saddle, had a T4 before and really didn't like it, so bought a new model 17" Wintec 2000 AP on Ebay. It's labelled 17" but is really big, actually measures 17.5. Why?
Oh, I've just bought a Wintec 500 Wide in a 17'5" and didn't find that as, although I normally ride in a 17" that looked a little short on my youngster, even though he's not long-backed. The 17.5" looks a bit better on him.
