well i know what you are going through. and i for one do like the wintecs. i had to buy an english saddle for my youngster and diden't feel like spending thousend on a stubben or crosby (i just don't have that kind of money for a saddle that will probably get torn up but a colt) so i went w/ a kincade. i really like it and it has served me well. i am no longer doing english so it is for sale, but while i had i enjoyed it very much and so did my horse. good luck to you!
