Hello I am just wondering what everyone thinks of synthetic saddles and which brand of saddle they think is best. I'm looking at buying my first horse in the next 2 months so am looking into all of my equipment needs.
I personally think that you should get a Synthetic Saddle as I have one and they are great.
Synthetics are good saddles to start with, a lot easier to look after. :P
My first saddle was a synthetic Wintec. But my horse got wider so it stopped fitting. So I recently bought a synthetic Thorowgood.
You should go into your local saddlery and see what they have to offer, and ask there opinion on what would fit your horse best. :)
the two saddleries close to me stock wintec and kincade synthetic saddles. anyone have an opinion on which is the better of the two?
Everyone I know that has gotten Kincade saddles (or reins) have really regretted it. Supposedly they fall apart at the hem really easily. :|
Do they have Abetta, Bighorn or Fabtron in OZ?
Freight may not justify anyone from keeping them in you area.
Sorry, I think you were talking English.
Wintec's seem to be the most popular around our area, if that helps your choice.
I have a Wintec 250 AP saddle and LOVE it! Very easy to care for, can just wash it with a little soap and water, no need to condition or anything - and if it's raining no need to worry about messing it up. Plus they are very LIGHT!
The only thing I dislike about synthetic is the squeaky noise they make when you're posting!! :-) (and the synthetic leathers are difficult to adjust, they don't soften the way leather does) But overall for the price, you just can't beat synthetic, esp for a beginner saddle...mine was only $269.00 brand new!
For English saddles, I agree, Wintec. Thorowgood is also a good brand.
For western, I agree with Southern, Abetta, Fabtron, or Big Horn.
For english I use a Wintec pro and western an Abetta. I love them both.
