    Default Anyone have experience with Tekna Saddles?

    I was wondering if anyone had experience with Tekna saddles. They are new to the US, seem to be very popular in Austrailia and Europe: http://vichorse.com/forum/index.php?...0214a4f0cf5222
    and http://www.equestrian.org.au/default.asp?Page=20185.

    They are synthetic, but by the photos they are the most gorgeous synthetics I have ever seen! I like the idea of the tree, too - available in widths but adjustable by an authorized dealer with a heat unit to any measurement, kinda like Prestige, from my understanding.

    I am excited about them because I have a good jumping saddle, but would love to get an inexpensive dressage saddle to dabble with. I kinda like the looks of the horse boots too!

    Their website is here: http://teknasaddlery.com/. Interested to hear opinions!

    Nobody? I was looking to get the dressage model, my tack shop said they should be in stock in a month or so....

    I sat in one the other day and it put me in perfect position (dressage saddle). I didn't have to fight it and it seem really secure without trapping me in the saddle. Granted, this was on a saddle buck at the store, but I'll be looking for a demo to try on my horse soon (have to save up a bit first).

    I, too, would like some info on them if anyone has any to give.

    No experience, but they look really nice.
