It looks cute. I wonder how expensive it is (because if it's cheap I suspect it's a low quality one).

Those are all over the Internet, there are US made ones by riders choice on eBay.

Yeah, I agree here. Or look into the used one but a good brand.

While pretty, the construction is going to be crap at that price. Save a little more and spend it on a quality used saddle. Your horse will be much happer and it will hold up much longer.

I went to a tack auction awhile back and they had racks & racks of double T saddles, the quality was atrocious. The leather quality was akin to cardboard. Most of them went for less than a hundred bucks new, they couldn't have paid me to take one home. I think companies like them target new owners or those on a budget and don't care in the least about making a quality product.

As others have said, look for a quality used saddle. That saddle is listed at $400 new, there are good used ones to be had for that. I picked up a vintage Billy Cook for a student several months ago for less and it's a darn nice saddle.

The Double T's, despite the claims of being US made, are NOT, It's just their line of BS.

As others have said they are very poor quality saddles. For that price you can get a name brand, well made, used saddle that will last you for years.

Your horse wont think it "looks" nice on him lol. I would pass on that saddle, looks are about all you willl get from it. Its made very poor, I havent figured out yet why they are allowed to sell cheap saddles :/
