It looks like someone wants new and shiney in a box. Pony, I have dismantled english saddles, low quality to high and I can tell you there is a huge difference. The metal used in the pommel that has the points and attaches to the tree is the cheapest I've ever seen, including air bubbles. The tree broke where the it joined the metal. The tree was bare wood which means it's subject to high humidity, hot dry days, insects. The saddle was about 4 years old and the leather still looked pretty good. With the high end the pommel head was made of spring steel which is a bit flexible can withstand a horse that's jumping. The tree was a good laminate which means it is flexible also and coated with a waterproofing which repelled moisture, heat and bugs. The tree had broken on this one also, the difference being it had seen about 50 years of jumping. I've said my piece.
