I don't think you'd be robbed buying any saddle with stirrups and irons at $30. Does it not have any markings on it , anywhere , to tell you the maker? It doesnt' look bad. I doubt it's top quality, but it's kind of hard to tell from those photos. Cannot tell the balance on it , either, because it is on that chair back instead of a stand. careful putting on anything the way you have it there, with something pressing right up into the gullet. try to keep it where it is bearing weight where it normally does, or set in it's "forks", such as in transport in your car.
