New Saddle?!?!

I was thinking about buying a new saddle, and I thought this was cool, along with the bridle. Any thoughts?

Where's the puking icon? Sorry, I'm an English rider. We don't go for all that weird animal print stuff.

All kidding aside, that doesn't look like a very well made saddle set regardless of the coloration.

What brand is the saddle? Not my cup of tea, but the bridle is cute!

No, No, No, No.

For what you'll pay for the set, you can find a MUCH better quality used saddle that wouldn't have crap leather and will be comfortable for you and your horse.
It's nice to have a pretty saddle, but not at the expense of your horse's comfort.
You could look into a nice saddle pad with a design, that in itself will be more attractive than the saddle.

The headstall and breastcollar are nice, but the same quality as the saddle.
Just look around and see what you can find. Remember, always try used before new!

How about a saddle like this?

I don't know what seat size you are wanting but just an idea for you.

What about wintec saddles? I heard the english ones are really good from a lot of people, what about the western?

Hmmm, I've heard they can be hard to fit. If you purchase one, try to fit it before you make it official.

How about an Abetta? They're decent quality and synthetic as well.

I'm not a western rider but I'll comment anyway :)
First of all, are you going to be happy riding in zebra print ten years from now?
I don't know the price, but a saddle for a little more or same price could last you WAY longer than that kind. I have a friend that has that saddle and the print began rubbing off where there was pressure a year after she got it.

NO!
It looks like a Double T to me, which fall apart after a year of use.
Do not buy it. It's a gigantic waste of money. Instead, look for a nice used saddle in your price range. It'll last you a heck of a lot longer than this one will... I like the breastcollar though! Very cute. Maybe just buy the bridle and breastcollar and find a used light oil saddle?
Just a thought. :)
