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.

Your welcome. Our saddles get used and sometimes abused by other riders but I would never in a million years thought my royal king would have taken all the beating and rolling, and riding that is has. Take a stiff brush, brush it off and do it again. It rides just like it did five years ago.

I'm going to read up some information on the Royal King's, because like I said SouthernTrailsGA my sister just bought one brand new last year for barrels. So If there's some safety problems going on with the brand I'd like to know for sure before she uses It again this year. If I don't find anything to cause concern then I'd like to atleast buy one and try It out myself. We have a local tack shop that deals with a lot of brand name tack and I'll see what information she can give me. I've never heard of anything like that before, but then again I mostly stick to Billy Cook or Circle Y. But thanks for the warning I'll def. Look in to this new information.
