    Just putting up a post... you can definitely hate a wintec for its feeling or the position it puts you in... but not for it's quality. It may not look or feel like leather, but I've had mine for years and use it every day, on several horses, and it looks absolutely brand new. It's not warped or twisted or scuffed at all, and it takes a beating daily!
    Just adding to make things fair.

    Idk, i've just never liked wintecs. Are kincade saddles good? I saw that they were cheaper than wintecs, and I was wondering.

    I'm not quite sure why you don't like wintecs, but would be willing to try a kincade. They're pretty much straight crap. Lol

    I have heard many good things from Kincade saddles.

    Finding a saddle isn't always as easy as selecting one for a good price. I tried 15 saddles on my qh before finding one that find both of us. I know you mentioned that you are just pricing now but just something to keep in mind, a saddle can be a big investment so be sure its the right one for you and your horse.
    You can also look for one on equine classified websites (especially ones with seller ratings to be on the safe side) or put an ad in a local newspaper you never know you might get lucky.
    Good Luck.

    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.
