I don't know much about the King brand of saddles. I don't think it is a top of the line brand, though.

However, I have ordered online from Chick's and have been happy with the service. I got the wrong item once, and they took care of it right away. I have also been to their store a few times and I enjoy shopping there.

I have a King series show saddle that I picked up at a garage sale after the tree broke in my Circle Y. It is OK. You can tell the "silver" pieces are cheap, but I don't think the rest of it is of bad quality. It has a comfy seat too. Of course, mine is a bit older, so I don't know about their quality now. I think it would be fine for someone just starting out.

I do have to say though, I would definitely recommend Circle Y. They are great quality and last forever if you take care of them. The one I had that has a broken tree was used when my mother got it and went through her abuse, then was passed down to me and held up well to my abuse too. It looked incredible when shined up. By far the best seat I've ever sat in too. I am using another used Circle Y now and as far as "mass produced" saddles go, I think they're probably the best (but I might have to try other brands to back up that statement ) More money, but you get a great piece of equipment.

Never tried Chick's... but I know a lot of people use them and love them, and see them recommended a lot on other forums.

King saddles are pretty dubious quality – they’re typically the ones that are made from cardboard and cheap, urine-tanned Indian leather. They’re not something I would want to stake my life on just to save a few dollars. Honestly if you are on a budget, I would look for a decent synthetic saddle that’s used if you just want to do trail riding or pleasure stuff. Abetta saddles are good and a new one is usually only slightly more than the price range you’re looking at, in the $400 range. I have had great luck posting “In Search Of” ads on horse tack groups on Facebook too.
