In the new Wintec. It's a different ride than the Trekker. Ashke was very free in the shoulder and very forward. I had a hard time getting him to slow down. He was even walking on a loose rein with his head down. He seemed much more willing to work with his back and even gave me a couple of good canters.
I think the Wintec will work until the Alta Escuela gets here. I may just keep it for showing. It's not a bad saddle for $400. After our ride, Ashke was a little sore, but not any more than he was when I put the saddle on him. I need to start using the sore no more products to help him get right.
He did use his back a lot during our ride and he's basically had three weeks off with limited to no work, so over all I was very proud of him. She was able to get him to do shoulder in and a half pass correctly (I'm still learning) and he was very relaxed at the canter.
So, now to the good stuff:
