Question TN Saddlery??

I found this on eBay (yes I know don't buy a saddle on eBay it's probably junk... make sure it fits... etc.) I got the measurements and it seems like it would be a perfect fit for my paint. Any experience with this brand? It is such a pretty saddle and made in the US. Plus since I'm suspecting my paint may be gaited as she goes into a jog between trot and canter. Either way here's the link:

A gaited Paint?
Our two Paints need a wide tree.Just make sure you can resell it or return it if it doesn't fit. Buying online is a gamble unless you know exactly what you are getting. So many choices...and so little chance to actually see the saddle at a local tack shop. It can drive ya nuts!
Sorry. I'm no help but I wish you good luck!

Thanks she's an Appendix paint... double registered with APHA and AQHA. And I guess since thoroughbreds CAN be gaited she got a gaited gene in there somewhere... it's kinda cool but weird. She and I make quite a pair

I highly doubt that Saddle is made in the USA, it says designed in TN.

The Saddle strings and shape of the Pommel give it away, I bet it is made in Kanpur India

.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Maybe I'm too picky... I want a round skirt natural saddle with a black seat. And I don't want to pay a fortune. Is that too much to ask? Not to mention my horse is hard to fit... I think I am doomed to ride in ill fitting saddles . The one I'm using now is pinching her withers...

Oh how fun! I'll look into them. Have you heard anything about Rider's Choice saddles? My friend has one and keeps raving about it, but I can't find enough about them online...
