Personally, I wouldn't go with one of those cheap little starter packages. Generally speaking, the saddles are terrible and are more likely to sore your horse than anything. Have you browsed Ebay for a good used name-brand saddle?
At first glance, it does not look like a bad outfit but I think if you were to see it in person you would find the flap leather not as supple and substantial as the better quality saddles; as well the stirrup leathers are probably on the light side; and some of the stitching perhaps sloppy. Assuming the tree is decent and fits the horse well, it still would not likely hold up to the rigors of frequent daily riding the way the more expensive saddles would. So if this is to be your regular saddle (rather than say an occasional use one), you'd be better to try for a better quality used one or if you did get this one know that you would need to be prepared to replace it sooner than later.
Aaaannnndddd...l I'm horrified! Good grief i'm glad I asked you guys before I purchased a POS like that O_o
I was considering eBay, but I was worried I would be stuck with an ill fitting saddle.
Any thoughts on the bridle?
The bridle looks fine to me and, with it being the price it is, I seriously doubt it's poor quality. Maybe not the absolute best, but certainly functional.
The thing about buying saddles, no matter where you go, is you run the risk of getting one that doesn't fit. At least with a good quality used, if it doesn't fit, it won't be because it was built on a bent/cracked tree or the flocking was stuffed and left lumpy or lopsided. A good saddle is usually a relatively easy re-sale.
Though if you could visit with a saddle fitter or even try some saddles that belong to friends or at the local tack shop (my local shop will let you bring your horse in and try saddles on them in the parking lot to find one that fits). That will at least let you know what tree size you need for when you're shopping online. OR, you might find a really nice used one that fits at the tack store and save yourself all kinds of headaches.
I am actually riding him in a borrowed wintec 200 ap saddle,but its too small for me. I know what tree size he needs, so that's not a problem. I use a really great tack consignment shop, that has a 7 day money back garuntee. To the tack shop I go :P
