Here are the closeups, sorry they aren't the best quality - it's been raining so I haven't been able to put it on Riley to get decent photos

I quite like the stitching on the bridle.
Does the saddle have the changeable gullet like the Wintecs?
That saddle does look pretty comfy

It's SUPER soft, I love riding in it! The gullets are changeable but they have to be taken back to the saddlery (if they have the machine) or sent back to the STC to get changed, but the regular gullet fits both of mine pretty well and they're all different shapes/sizes

The gullet sounds like it's really the only con for this saddle against the Wintec.
My biggest issue with that I have a young horse that's still growing and changing shape and muscling and all that fun stuff.
Oh well, nothing a saddle fitter can't fix. If my bum likes it, I think that's the main thing

I wish the Tekna saddles came with the CAIR system... Now I have a big decision to make.

Aspin - I haven't heard the greatest things about the CAIR system, a few people I know who've bought Wintecs with the CAIR have ended up on-selling them because they caused back problems. Just what I've heard so not sure entirely if it's true.
    10-04-2010, 10:21 PM
Yeah I've heard that about the CAIR as well from a couple people. Haven't really heard anything good about the system at all really.

That's strange, I've never heard anything negative about the CAIR system...I adore it!
Oh, I did hear that people had problems fitting very wide horses because of only the front of the saddle changing and not the back, but within the "average" range I think it's a godsend...
Anyway, sorry to digress!
I wanted to say wow, what gorgeous tack! Finally someone gives Wintec some decent competition! I've always been a fan of Wintec, myself, but really it's by default as I don't use leather....so excited to see such gorgeous synthetics!
Now if only they'd make a western saddle- the Wintec western is sure no great thing...

It's NOT leather? Even the close ups look so leather-like. I'd have to touch it to believe you. Lol It's just gorgeous!

That's seriously not leather?!?! Lovely looking saddle and tack.

How big/in the way are the knee rolls? In some of the pics on their site they look quite in the way, as I prefer small to none. How high is the back of the seat/how deep is it? Also, how easy is it to clean?

Sorry for the questions, but the US site gives very little details and alternate views of the saddles. My college's trainer is very fond of lessons in the hills/woods/creek/mud, so I'm looking for a nice saddle that won't be ruined by this... no way I'm subjecting my Pessoa to this treatment for long.
