RE: [RC] wide saddle trees update - Libby & Quentin Llop

 I spoke with Ron Bates (as in Bates saddles, founder of Wintec) yesterday. He said that the x-tra wide gullet plate (white) is the widest that you can put in the current saddles without deforming the tree and possibly causing warps and wrinkles in the seat. They are however bringing out a wide saddle with 3 gullet plates of it's own (not to be interchanged with current saddles). They have already been released in England.
  They are also totally redesigning the Wintec endurance. The new one will not have the extended panels and is being designed to fit Arabs.    Libby

Subject: [RC] wide saddle trees

A friend told me that Wintec offers an extra - extra wide bar for their gullet change system that is for draft horses and other wide loads. I have an extra wide but my mare is like a barrel and it will roll. I can't find extra extra wide from any of the usual Wintec sources. Anyone know where I can find one? Thanks
