I don't know this saddle, and it doesn't LOOK bad... but I'm generally leery of all new saddles in this price range. They tend to be terrible quality, fit horses poorly, and put you in a bad position. A girl at our barn got this decent looking saddle at a price like this one and it made her sit with her leg way out in front of her. Hurt her position, affected her security and balance. You can find a decent used saddle in the same price range.
