RE: [RC] Wintec - David LeBlanc

If you stay under the customs limit for duty-free (about $400, I think) you
can avoid the duty taxes. I think one saddle may come in under that, though
it is a total for all the stuff you bring in, not per item.

BTW, $1 US is about $1.50 AU, give or take.

I have no idea if you'd really save anything unless you visited the factory.

We went down there in 2000, went on an Equitour in Queensland and had a
blast. We would have liked to have brough home one of the horses, but the
$10,000 transportation cost rained on that parade.

I was in Australia two years ago.. I brought back 3 saddles 
in an empty suitcase. They were the same price as here.. only 
our money was worth double what theirs is.... 

I had to pay 10% tax on it... then 10% duty tax at the airport...

So not sure how much I really saved??? with all the taxes involved...

It was one of the best trips I have ever been on.
