Synthetics are fine.
I've owned a Wintec since they first started making them. In fact, I sold my very first Wintec to a lesson barn and they're still using it. I currently have an older 2000 AP that I purchased new, and it still looks as if I just bought it. No, they won't last as long as a well made leather saddle, but if you can get 30-35 years out of one that's pretty darned good for a synthetic.
I also own a 45 y/o Stubben Siegfried that I bought used. Great saddle, but you have to know well made ones from garbage. I'd rather buy a decently made synthetic than a crap leather saddle any day.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
