    Question Is this a good deal?

    I want to start riding english and found this pre-packaged tack deal that looks pretty good. I think the saddle is synthetic, which doesn't bother me. But I want some other opinions before I spend my money. Here's the link:

    English Starter Set: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com

    It's a 7 piece set for about $150, includes saddle, bridle, etc.

    Good deal, rip off...?

    Are they made in Asia? If so, steer FAR FAR away. I made that mistake and the tack is useless.
    Search for online reviews on the company... Silver Fox Saddlery.

    I have that same package in the brown. I like you am just getting into English riding. I have had no problems with mine and it fits my horse well. The only thing I didn't like about it was the girth that comes with it. So I bought a better one. The saddle is comfy.

    I would stay away from it! I have read reviews on the saddle and most are not good! Its poorer quality and doesn't fit many horses very well and ended up falling apart or needing repairs after little use! Check around for a nice used saddle!

    Just remember that you get what you pay for - it may look like a good deal at $150 but what if you then have to pay $1000 for vet and chiro fees because your horses back gets damaged from a poor quality saddle , not to mention that you will have to get another saddle as well.

    Better to look for a second hand wintec

    I think I'll take the advice and steer clear of it. I don't wanna risk hurting my babies! And I found the same package on other websites and the reviews weren't that great, heard a lot about how the girth wasn't very good especially.

    I have had mine for almost a year with no problems and it is holding up well. I know someone that has rode in one for 3 years and no repairs or problems with it hurting any of her horses. The horses I ride in it are QH's. The girth was not good but hey that is a cheap fix to replace.

    This review doesn't sound bad. http://www.horsetackreview.com/review-display/9785.html
