Ive heard nothing but bad things about kinkade and status saddles, espeially how they are cheap and ruin horses backs.

Are they really all that bad?

they definitely are not an everyday, ride and grind kind of saddle.

i think that for what they are, they make a great occasional use or light use saddle, and it's nice for people on a budget to be able to afford.

but - - if you can afford just a little more, you enter into a whole new level and quality of saddles that are definitely worth their salt. :)

I have heard that Kincade saddles are crappy, but I have had two of their bridles (I gave one to a friend) and a breastplate w/ running martingale and they are really nice. =] I have had my bridle for almost 4 years and it still looks pretty new. I'm sure it would look a lot better if I cleaned it every now and then. Lol.
