Yuck. That's awful.
I just meant you could go with any American made, leather saddle with the fake tree and (as long as it fits) you'd be alright. They just don't hold up to heavy work, like roping grown cattle.
I have a saddle of that quality that I usually use when starting horses with saddle (just because it's easy to put on and take off with one hand) and it's lasted 16 years now.
