actually I've heard a lot of bad things about Kincades! (for most brands you're going to hear tons of positive and negative things, take it all with a grain of salt!) I don't know what they feel like to sit in but I think the leather doesn't look the best quality, and I know my old Kincade bridle is pretty cheap. Not nearly as bad as the original saddle you had posted. Have you though about a collegiate? They make some great saddles and you can find a great deal on a used one. Can I ask what your budget is? Someone at our barn is selling their Stubben (which is a quality brand, they last forever, enough people love them). I can get pics and find out what they're asking. I'd also check out Tacktrader.com. I got a great deal on a new Circuit bridle there.
