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!
