Tekna saddles?
 
I'm in the process of waiting for Riley's new Tekna gear to arrive at my saddlery(bridle, breastplate, jumping saddle, stirrups, girth, front and back jumping boots) and I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with Tekna gear and what they think of it?

I definitely like the look of them a lot more than the Wintecs, and I've heard good things about them from a few people, just wanted some more opinions.

Here's the website link for anybody interested in having a look

Hi I sell Tekna at Sundance Saddlery. I find it really good. They are really comfortable and the customers that have brought that have said the same. One lady has brought another one for her other horse. Hope this helps

WHITE Dressage Saddle & PINK Jumping Saddle
 
I have been really curious about the Tekna brand name and it would be much appreciated if you would let us know what you think about your new tack after you've had a chance to try it, etc.! I really like the concept and the look of the saddles too.

However, I recently checked back on their website and I was "stunned" to find that they now make a WHITE Dressage Saddle and I believe that I also saw a PINK jumping saddle. Soooooo, don't know if my eyes were playing tricks on me (I didn't get much sleep last night!) but what does everyone think of saddles in colors like this, I just don't think I could ever get used to a WHITE Dressage saddle!!!!

That white dressage saddle....:shock:
Drool...wow...I've wished for a white dressage saddle my whole life.

But umm..I was gonna say something...oh yeah :lol: I've been eyeing this brand for awhile, their stuff looks beautiful. Very interested to say what people have to say, including the OP when she gets her stuff in!

You can't get the white dressage saddle in Australia, but the pink jumping saddle only comes in 'pony' sizes so I'm guessing it could look cute on a little girl's pony (not that I think I'd let my kid have one!)

I've sat in the saddle already and until you're right up close it looks like leather. And it's so comfy to sit in! I'm just waiting for the 17 inch to arrive to see if it fits me better than the 17.5. I'm super excited and will be posting photos of Riley in all his new gear (minus his front boots that aren't available til late October :( ) as soon as I get it all :)

I've seen that brand for sale on a site here in Ireland, I thought they looked quite good and very reasonably priced!

Subscribing.
Please let us know your opinion on this brand.
Also, is all their strap-work (bridles etc.) synthetic as well? I sent them an e-mail but I'm still unsure on that. If you know could you tell me? Thanks.

Lifeofriley 09-09-2010 02:21 AM

Aspin, yes their bridles are all synthetic, as well as their boots. A girl I compete against rides in the full set and swears by it. Only a week or so now til I get it!

aspin231 09-09-2010 04:00 AM

OOOH!!! SUPER excited now! Thanks!

These are all synthetic? Do they feel diffrent than leather saddles? I know Wintec feels all stiff and squeeky compaired to a leather saddle.
