Would be hard to tell without a hands-on examination. Our guess is as good as yours at this point. Go see it! Worth a shot! If it fits you and your horse, I'd say it's a good investment.

I'm so busy, I don't know if I've found a rope... or lost my horse...

The lady said it's made of real leather and condtion is like new but doesn't know the size.I'm kind of torn wether to chance it or not.That's an awesome price but....what to do what to do?

I'm pretty sure that's a King Series saddle... Let me check really quick and see if I can find more info for you...

I personally have a King and LOVE it!

If it is a King, I would say go for it! The price is GREAT! I sold my 15 inch well used barrel saddle for $150. That saddle looks barely used! I just purchased a new King trail saddle a few months ago and I LOVE it!

Good luck!

Have the lady measure the seat for you. It will be hard to tell if it will fit your horse from a picture.

I would pass. It looks like a cheap Asian import to me, unless you also want to use it as a decoration .

King Series and Royal King saddles are both Asian made junk. They're made on cheap fiberglass trees, or softwood trees, both of which will warp and crack over time, and often don't fit horses right from the beginning. The leather is chemically treated and painted on, with poor stitching. The hardware is all nickle plated that will rust and break sooner or later. Some web sites try to advertise them as having "retail prices" in the $500-800 range, but they're not worth even a third of that price...

Saddle King of Texas are good saddles, though I believe they're not made any more.
