Does this saddle look cheap, is it good quality?

I'm new to this forum
Anyway, I'm finding it hard to find reviews on this saddle and I was wondering if anyone could help?

I just want to know if it's a nice saddle for barrel racing, as my horse and I are getting more competetive but I don't want to spend a fortune! This one is a good price range and I like it.

Saddle King of Texas "Rodeo Star" Saddle



It comes in a light tan, dark cherry, and black colouring. Which one looks better, and overall if you know, is this saddle comfortable for the horse? It has the correct measurements for my horse but her safety and comfort comes before all!!

I just really want to know if this saddle could be good for competing and it'd be perfect it was!

Terrible, terrible, terrible crap saddle. Put together with staples and spit.

Edit: Way overpriced at $480, too! Is that your budget?

Have you ridden in one? Or are you going by the pictures? Because You can't really tell just by those pictures....

No, I just would like to save money, that's all. Also, it's one that appealed to me.

I've seen them in stores. They're incredibly stiff and very poorly constructed. Hard as a rock. And I've seen and ridden in enough saddles that I really can get a pretty good idea by pictures.

Well, do you have any suggestions for around that price then? I'm looking at that price range before anything else right now.

Also, anyone else if you have any other input about this saddle, please do, because I've heard really good things about it on the few other forums I've seen, but I wanted to get my own opinion. Thanks!
