I'd love to try one! But the tack stores around here don't carry them (although one said they'd order it for me) and I don't want to order one just to try and then have to pay shipping to send it back. If I ever see one I will definitely try it out. It looks really comfortable!

I just received my saddle Monday! Tekna Jumping saddle with the Figure 8 bridle, Anti-slip reins and the elastic breast plate! The saddle looks amazing and Very comfy to ride in. It keeps me in the right position much betted then my old wintec 500 close contact. If theres any thing else you would like to know about it just ask

I'm hoping to get one of these saddles soon, but finances are very tight right now, so I don't know. If anyone has any reviews, I'd love to hear them.

I was looking at their website not too long ago. I like how they look more like a real leather saddle then the new wintecs, and they are priced about the same as the new wintecs. However, nobody near me carries them, or seems to even have heard of them! I would for sure want to see and feel one before I bought, pictures on the internet can be decieving!

So I guess I will stick with my wintec.

Personally I hate them!!! With a passion :S

But I know a lot of people that absolutely adore theirs. So it's just a matter of try before you buy. Don't make the mistake of just buying one because someone says its good ;)

Kayty- WHY do you not like it? Is it just not the right saddle for you, pr is it poorly constructed?

Just for me, it doesn't suit my body type at all.
