We’ve compiled the ultimate guide to the most popular Wintec products, highlighting the best-selling product in each of the below categories. We’ve also added our own comments as to why we think each product has made the #1 position in its category – see if you agree!

Most popular Wintec Saddle in 2016:

The Wintec 500 All Purpose has been crowned this year’s most popular Wintec Saddle, edging out just ahead of the Wintec 2000 All Purpose.

Why do we think it’s the most popular?

The Wintec 500 All Purpose range features the most hard-wearing and durable Equi-Leather material to the seat, providing an easy to wipe over surface for messy and muddy riding!

Most popular Wintec Bridleware in 2016:

The Wintec Equi-Leather Grip Reins was the top product in the bridleware category, followed closely by the complementary Wintec Running Martingale.

Why do we think it’s the most popular?

It’s simple, classic and durable. The Wintec Equi-Leather Grip Reins are a favourite for every day riding in all conditions including rain, mud, and snow due to the lifestyle benefits of its easy-care and weatherproof materials.

Most popular Wintec Webbers in 2016:

The Wintec Pro Webbers are the most popular choice by a landslide!

Why do we think it’s the most popular?

While our complete Webber range features a durable webbing core for added strength, the standard Wintec Webbers simply feature an Equi-Leather outer, whereas the Wintec Pro Webbers feature Equi-Suede for a much more luxurious appearance and feel.

Most popular Wintec Stirrup Straps in 2016:

Out of a very wide range of Wintec Stirrup Straps available, the Wintec Pro Stirrup Straps have edged ahead as the most popular in our range.

Why do we think it’s the most popular?

Although all Wintec Stirrup Straps are reinforced with a webbing core for durability, the Wintec Pro Stirrup Straps have an added advantage with the added durability offered by an additional layer of Equi-Suede.

Most popular Wintec Girth in 2016:

The Wintec Elastic Girth is almost 6 times more popular than the next girth making it a very clear favourite for the 2nd year in a row!

Why do we think it’s the most popular?

Well-priced, durable and easy-care, the Wintec Elastic Girth is a no-fuss, straight-forward solution to suit most saddles and horses.

In second place again, is the top of the range Wintec Girth with CAIR which is scientifically proven to dramatically improve your horse’s comfort and performance. The girth features both a broad, even bearing surface to distribute pressure over a larger surface area as well as a central CAIR Cushion to fluidly work with your horse’s muscles and provide symmetrical give for your horse’s expanding chest.

Most popular Wintec Accessory in 2016:

In a mixed field of saddle cleaners, and Flexiblocs, it’s no surprise that this fitting accessory has taken the gold!

Why do we think it’s the most popular?

Available to suit the front or the rear of a saddle, the Wintec Half Riser Comfort pad suits most brands of saddles and enables you to achieve lift where you need it most, without unnecessary bulk under the rest of your saddle.

It is however vitally important to understand that every product has a maximum lifetime which will be affected by a number of factors including the environment, frequency of use and care. It is every rider’s responsibility to regularly check their tack, particularly any safety-related items such as stirrup straps, Webbers, girths and girth points for signs of excessive wear and tear.
