Picture of the whole saddle? A picture of the underside? I'm learly. Sounds like an import brand.

Here's another thread on this brand:
Western Saddlery

Some other links:
W WESTERN SADDLEY Trademark Details
New - Western Saddle by Western Saddlery - one for sale. Definitely looks like a cheap import. I wouldn't buy it.

Hard to find much about this brand. Since they seem to be "recent", not an old brand, this lack of information is a red flag to me.

I can tell from the leather of the latigo keeper that it's junk. Don't give much for it.

If I could see the whole saddle I could likely give you the lowdown on quality. On 2nd thought, don't pay anything for it. When a horse moves, as well as the rider, that puts a lot of stress and strain on a saddle. It's just not worth your safety to ride in an inferior quality saddle.
