wintec vs status?

Post  BM-MW-J on Mon Jul 30, 2012 5:03 am

ok so now that i can ride again i need a new saddle- the anky sold a few weeks ago so am after a nice GP for general paddock bashing, hunting and trails.

Ive had a wintec 2000, 500 and ridden in a 100? i have also spent a fair amount of saddle time in a status- cant remember which on but it was alright.

trying to decide which would be a better purchase-and value for money. what do you guys prefer out of the two "types" and why?

I'm not a fan of Status or Kincade saddles, no idea on the Wintecs these days cos I ride in a Horse Problems Australia swinging fender saddle

though I have heard the Tekna saddles are quite good and value for money...doesn't matter how much a saddle costs as long as it fits both you and your horse that's all that matters Very Happy

i am trying a bates gp tonight to see if i like it.

thanks for the suggestions guys, and i will have a look into a Tekna if the Bates is a no go.

I need a GP because of my hip so a swinging fender, stock/ poly or westerns are a no go Sad which is a shame because the stock poly i had for Duke- before he was sold was the MOST comfy saddle ever- like riding in an arm chair Smile
