Question Tekna Saddles

Who uses a tekna saddle?

If you do please tell me about your experience with them.

What you like and dont like about them.

How they fit, ride etc.

I am browsing saddles and a lot of them come up.

Thank you!

I haven't touched a Tekna but they are supposed to be decent and are making inroads.

I have the A4 and it a very nice synthetic. It isn't shiny or fake looking like wintecs often do after riding in them for a while. I really recommend it if you are looking for a nice saddle to start out in, although I will be using mine for shows as well. The A6 is suppoosed to be good to if you aren't that big into jumping. HDRs are pretty good as well, I have a friend who has one. Just make sure you know what size you'll need for your horse.

I have the tekna A8 dressage saddle in suede and like it alot. Saddle is very supportive and you stick like glue to it. I have two dressage saddles the tekna and a prestige 2000d. The tekna looks nice enough to show in so that if it rains the day of a show I don't have to worry about ruining a leather saddle. I had mine widened recently and it really works out well with my gelding.

I've heard they are decent and are better made than Wintec. I've never seen/tried one, but would be curious to.
