Many English Saddles are Imports, maybe most, I have no problem with Imports if they are safe.
The Western Saddle Imports have not yet come up to safety standards and quality from what dozens of people have said and some I have actually seen after coming apart.
As mentioned the King series used to be made in the US. I would guess those that have held up well are the older US made versions.
The main problem with the new imported king saddles are the nails that do not hold and have come out and hurt the Horse, also the partially hollow trees have broken (i have a pic of that one).
I am only looking out for the Safety of the Horse and also the rider.
Right now there are 100's of quality used Saddles out there for sale, I know money is tight, why give it overseas if there are better choices.
May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
