.

The original Royal Kings were made in the USA, about 10-12 years ago they started making them in India.

If that is an original it may be worth 500.00, if it is newer it is worth nothing, imo

Thank you. I didnt know that. I bought my orginal one a long time ago and it was US made so I figured they were still US made but I wont buy anything tack wise unless its US made.

Ask them when it was purchased and how much it was used.

THe new ones I have been looking at are 400-500 new but they are built all screwed. This one doesnt look like its built like the India made saddles just the way the seat and everything put together isnt raised with a raised cantle but I dont want to drive a few hours for a dud.

I sent the guy a message asking him when the saddle was purchased. He sounds like he is getting mad at me for asking questions but I dont buy cheap stuff. never have. I dont want to drive a few hours just to be disappointed. Im going that way anyway to pick up a billy cook saddle we are only paying a little of nothing for and I would like to look at this one but not if he is going to get an attitude with me.

The guy that has it was apparently paid via saddle instead of cash cause the lady didnt have the money. The lady told the guy the saddle was over $1100 new and had never been on a horse. But now the guy is going to be stuck with it
