Tekna saddles

Does anyone have photos of a Tekna saddle on their horse?

I am curious as to the type of horse they seem to fit best and may not be able to try before I buy... I am going to track down the one near me which is for sale, but I have a sneaky suspicion it may be the wrong tree size.

I found a really nice deal on them, and was thinking they might make a lovely saddle for giving lessons... It sounds like a lot of good reviews (and some bad, but I would think something was wrong if NOBODY complained) as far as balance for the rider and horse, the gullet seems to be uniformly wide all the way back... But I have some concern over the tree shape, for my own horses.(most of my horses fit a Wintec - and yeah, I know I may go to hell for that, but if it fits the horse, and I can afford it, I just don't care what it is!)

So... If you own a Tekna, and it fits your horse, please show me a photo (I don't care about which model, the tree seems the same or very similar on all of them).

I have the tekna a8 dressage saddle in wide. I have a 12 year old quarter horse gelding who wears the saddle. Don't have any pictures yet and will most likely be widening the saddle to a 35cm tree but it does work.

What would you describe his body type as?

I have one stock horse type who is low withered, very flat backed, short backed and wide ribbed... He is a primary lesson horse for me, so would be a primary fit concern.

The others are more typical horse shaped, with wide shoulders (which it sounds like the tekna works well for) and ribcages but not terribly flat topped.
