In the $200 and below budget, I would look at used. In that price range anything new is nothing I would put on any horse I rode. The leather and tree on a saddle like that is very suspect and certainly will not hold up. You simply can't produce a good saddle in that price point.
As SouthernTrails said, look for a good used American made saddle. The quality is astronomically better.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
