Leather looks cheap, and I don't see a maker's mark on the Latigo holder. It doesn't look used, so I'm betting the seller never used it because it's not of good quality.

I would never pay $450 for it.

Mm, that one looks better, but I don't recognize the brand Triple C. I would need better pictures. Honestly, I would go look at anything I am considering buying in person. It is so easy to make a terrible western saddle look and sound higher quality than it is.

I wouldn't pay $500 for it regardless.

Triple C Saddles are about 600.00 when brand new, so used worth about 300.00-350.00 they are American Made, so you are on the correct path.

Brand New Leather Saddles under 500.00 are going to be Junk 99% of the time.

The term custom made can refer to just having strings added to D rings. There is no way a modestly used custom saddle will sell for under $2000. I don't care for either saddle. Some manufacturers will wrap the horse of a roping look saddle to fool the customer. These saddles invariably don't have a tree that would stand up to roping. And why the high dally horn - it would like snap off. Always ask what the tree is made of. Some sellers do mix up a Ralide tree for a fiberglass so you need to learn the diff. You don't want fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcing a wood tree is excellent, just not fiberglass.

I've seen some American saddlery saddles in person. Seemed to be decent saddles.
