It looks attractive, and reasonably priced. I don't really like the decorations around the outside portion, but other then that it looks good. Just make sure that there are no color regulations. I purchased a saddle a few years back after falling completely in love with it, just to fine that it was black and my barn owner wanted brown (as did the judges, showing regulations). It's really dependent upon the city/state in which you reside. It is in good condition? New? Used? Check to be sure that the seller has received decent ratings, I've always been very cautious when making purchases through E-bay. It is not always the most reliable source. Have you checked around at second-hand tack stores?

It looks a bit cheap to me. I would find out what country it was made in and what material the tree is made out of. If it was made in any Asian country (including India or Pakistan) and/or the tree is fiberglass, I would pass. Both are signs of poorly made saddles.

Being perfectly honest, the tree (to me) looks warped towards the back - it looks to me like the back end of the saddle wouldn't make much contact, and most of the weight would be balanced on the front half of the saddle.
