Depends for what you're looking for, that question open ended is practically impossible to answer.

I would say no, it looks cheaply made. I would look for a good used saddle if you can't afford a new one. Even the well made used, older saddles are going to give a better ride for you and your horse than a cheap new one.

I think the quality of the saddle for you depends a lot on how well the saddle fits the horse, and then the rider, and then the quality of the build.

On here we can't answer all that.

It's a cheap saddle but if its really comfy for you, and a great fit for your horse, its as good as any.

I trialed one of the downunder kimberley synthetic aussie saddles, it actually appeared quite well made and fit my short backed wide bodied Arab/Percheron mare well. It was too wide and flat in the seat for me though, and made my back hurt, but it is extremely hard for me to find a saddle that is comfortable due to back and neck issues. If you go to, this is the company that distributes them to the other stoes, and if you call, they are quite knowledgable about what you may or may not like.
