QUICK! Is this a good deal?

Found this on Craigslist and would really like to snatch it up today, but I can't remember if Kincade is a good brand or not. Should I buy it?

I wouldn't buy it.

Kincade bridles are okay, but I wouldn't buy one of their saddles. Plus, $300.00 isn't a 'bargain' by any stretch of the imagination for a saddle like that. You can buy one NEW for that price.

Not a good deal- Kincades are not good quality saddles, and you can buy a brand new one for about the same price as that post is asking: Kincade Redi Ride Saddle with Quick Switch | Dover Saddlery Cheaper if you have the Dover credit card to get $4.95 shipping

For that price range, you'd be better off getting a Wintec.

LOL! Sorry Shannon. We don't want you wasting money on a saddle that isn't worth it.

Yeah definately. haha I've just been spending WAY too much time on craigslist and ebay lately looking for a GOOD leather saddle for less than $400. I'm really sick of my synthetic saddle.

Never heard of Mendoza saddles.

I'm a big fan of Stubbens, but a lot of people don't like the firm seats.

Where in WI are you? Which area not your exact town. There are a good number of english saddles for sale here in the metro area. What synthetic do you have now?

I have an HDR Advantage synthetic. It's a nice saddle, don't get me wrong. I'd just like a good leather one. I'm about 20 minutes from Minneapolis. I go to UWRF.
