Hello! I saw that you don't use leather--Are you a vegan? I am a vegan, so I have been looking at synthetic tack from Wintec. I cannot use Tekna right now, because they have wool flocking. I contacted them to ask them if they had plans to use wool-free flocking and if they didn't, if they would make some without wool. Please let me know if you are a vegan! I have never met another before! Thank you!

I think the Tekna sounds better than the Wintec with the gullet. It'll just be more annoying having to take it back and play around while Amir's changing shape. I like the idea I can have it moulded exactly rather than hoping a gullet fits well and the cair moulds properly.

Seriously, who would cut a saddle open just to see what's inside? That's so far fetched.
I think a trip to Caboolture is in order
The saddler was probably just reflocking, not randomly cutting open saddles for a laugh. At least...I would hope.

Hey! I'm vegan too! I've said it a million times on here but everyone seems to forget!
And I do believe Rocky Pony is vegan too.

I want a tekna saddle with the cair system from wintec. I wonder what kind of strings I have to pull to achieve that? o.O

I dunno... People do some pretty weird and stupid things, especially if there's something new they're skepticle of

Oh and Lifeofriley, when you said they do take home laybys, was it an actual layby or was it like a GE or HSBC finance thing?

Yes, I am, in fact!
There are a few of us here on the forum, amazingly! Like aspin231, as she said, for example. I always get especially excited to find other vegans here, lol, there sure aren't many of us out here in the horse world, eh?

I totally forgot that most English saddles have only wool flocking, since I've always ridden Western and Wintec English saddles with CAIR, lol, it's good I wasn't in the market to buy one.
It's still great that they are synthetic, though, the more quality synthetic saddles out there, the better!

It's similar to a GE Money type of deal.. I have the brochure around here somewhere, I just can't remember which company it's through. I had to get mum to sign up for it because I don't work full-time so I wasn't eligible for it. You pay the deposit to the saddlery and then they direct debit the money every fortnight.

I know this is a little late, but after a few years I'm wondering how the saddle is now(which also depends on how often you clean it and all) but I am interested in buying one of these saddles. Was the saddle easy to break in? Did it squeak a lot when you did? Any other things you would like to tell me before I decide to buy? also is it close contact or deep seat? thank you :)
