    Exclamation New saddle

    Okay, I have a new saddle that I absolutely have fallen in love with. I have the money to spend on it and buy the saddle but I am curious if anyone knows much about the make of the saddle and if it's a good saddle.

    I am looking to buy a new saddle as my old saddle just isn't fitting me as much as I'd like it too It's a beautiful saddle but doesn't fit me in the least bit and I definitely need a new saddle for me and for the sake of my horse. Actually, the saddle I have now is actually screwing me up for my riding and I have terrible chair seat because of it.

    This is the saddle I so badly want... Hoping to get some good views on it so I can order it tomorrow or the next day :)

    Any help is taken into consideration and highly appreciated :)

    I would wait until you have another job before you purchase another saddle, honestly.

    I appreciate the honesty. I have another couple of jobs lined up, meaning one of them is good enough that I might start tomorrow night so I'm not worried, that's actually why I posted this thread asking for the advice on the saddle. I have enough in the bank that I can afford the saddle and still have enough money without having to be worried.

    Kincade are not the best saddles. They are cheap because they are made cheaply.

    They don't fit a lot of horses, I would definitely be having a saddle fitter look it over before you rode in it if you went through with the purchase.

    I have a synthetic kincade that is pretty much just a training saddle. Used to get the horse used to having a saddle on more than anything else. I have one horse who fits it well enough to be ridden in it.

    If I were you I would pass and look at either laybying a new better quality saddle, or buying a used nice saddle.

    I thought you were a bartender?

    Regarding the saddle, do you know that specific one is going to fit him? I'd hate to see you buy something and then not have it fit.

    Also, I would save up a little more and buy a nicer quality used saddle. You will probably get much more use out of it and it will just be a much better overall experience for you and Beau.

    As far as I've heard, Kincade are just hardly better than the no-name "starter" sets.

    I, too, would save for something nicer that's gently used.

    Again, I appreciate the honesty everyone.
    It's sad because I think it's an absolutely gorgeous saddle (at least what they make it look like on the website)

    However, my local tack shop and a girl that rides down the block from me has the same saddle and she says she loves it and uses it at local horse shows. *HeadDesk* I am getting so different opinions.

    In regards to trying it on Beau, I agree I wouldn't want to get him anything that didn't fit him or anything and I would most definitely be bringing in a saddle fitter to check it if I did happen to buy it. I am going to see if my friend can bring hers over and try it on him and just see for that "just in case" I will also be looking into buying a better and newer/used saddle either way, for some reason I am really in love with that saddle. Don't ask why, I laid eyes on it and was like *grabby hands*

    Dressage, if you read my other thread "what to do about my job" you'll see that the whole thing changed. I was a bartender, than got into dancing and bartending occasionally at work, however I got fired from there and in line for a new job that I am 97% sure I'll be starting tomorrow night, the manager is just looking at the schedule so that's also why I am looking into a new saddle because I can FINALLY afford it.

    Beu, I would't recommend getting Kincade. If you are short on money look into the used (but good brand) one instead.
