I'm not too concerned about the condition of the saddle shown on the horse. What does concern me is whether there is enough clearance at the withers when the horse has been ridden for about 20 minutes. Forget the $70 black saddle on ebay. It's junk. Please, everyone look at the underside. See how fleece has been used in the air channel. This is an air channel and air is supposed to move along it not get trapped in the material. Also, it conceals the tree, which I suspect is hollow fiberglass.
