I'm doubting if there'll be any answers, but I figured I'd go ahead and ask this anyway...
I'm vegan (not
associated with PETA and not any kind of crazy extremist, just to clarify! Please try to be respectful!) so I try to use only synthetic tack. So far I've had a lot of luck for the most part...I certainly don't ever compromise my horses' comfort or performance. So far, as far as saddles go, I've been pretty successful with Wintec saddles, especially on the English side of things.
I might possibly be getting a new western saddle soon, though, as I'll be getting a new horse (who will be ridden mostly Western). In the past I was never able to find a Western saddle that was totally synthetic with no leather points anywhere outside of a Wintec, and I'm still never able to find anything when I look but I'm just curious if anyone here knows of anything (of decent quality, of course)
I kind of doubt it but I figured I'd ask. If it turns out that my new horse doesn't fit any fully synthetic saddles I'm certainly not unwilling to pick up something like an Abetta (anything mostly synthetic with minimal leather) instead, I'm just more comfortable avoiding leather as much as possible.
**Note: I don't show and don't have any plans to show in the near future in anything beyond something small for fun.
Thank you for any and all help and for being respectful!
