I think they should be less concerned by where a saddle is made and more concerned with the fit and if it's adjustable. A horse changes back shape rather frequently and it's important to be able to adjust your saddle, especially if your riding slot of different horses...then their back changes a lot!
Exactly!! I just going to buy something that fits my horses now, and if I do end up going there, I'll deal with the different leather issue when I cross that bridge. They should honestly be more concerned if the saddle has an adjustable tree or if the saddle has interchangeable gullets.
