Paris tack all purpose saddle?

So I need to get a new saddle, but Im only in highschool and have to pay for it by myself and I need a nice but cheap saddle. I was looking around and found the Paris Tack General Purpose Saddle. It seems perfect, but I was wondering if anybody has it and how it holds up!? (:

i've had a paris tack bridle and it fell apart in no time. i don't know about their saddles but if the bridlework is any indication, i would look for something else.

have you considered a well made used saddle?

Generally speaking any saddle that retails new for under $400 is going to be of questionable quality.

Check out ebay and your local craigslist for a quality used saddle. I have no idea what size you need but this Passier saddle is going for just $250: Passier Baum 16" Saddle w/ FREE SHIPPING! | eBay
That's a good brand that is already broken in and still has years of life left in it.

stay far, far away from any of the cheap saddle packages like this. Not only will they have a very short life, but chances are they won't fit you or your horse very well either. I definitely agree with the advice of looking for a quality used saddle. I got my Stubben for $350 off ebay 2 years ago. It's 45 years old & still in beautiful condition. You'd be lucky to get 5 good years out of one of these cheaper saddles.

We don't know who writes those reviews, could be the sellers themselves.
