Besides eBay, what are the best web sites for selling/buying used tack? I have two nice saddles I need to sell, as they no longer fit any horses I own. Thanks!September 16, 2013 at 1:25 pmEquineMelodyTopics Started: 6Replies Posted: 29
Well, I’m not sure, but… I need a new saddle! What style, seat size, tree size, and brand are they, and what are you asking?September 17, 2013 at 12:21 am
Both are nice County jumping saddles. I rode in them each equally but just sold my narrow, high withered horse, and my other horse has outgrown the Medium and needs to size up. Great saddles that naturally put you in a balanced position and allow the horses to fully use themselves.
One is a County Innovation, 17 seat, Medium tree, calf leather.
Other is a County Stabilizer, 17.5 seat, Narrow tree.September 17, 2013 at 1:27 amLeslieTopics Started: 1Replies Posted: 44
I love County saddles!
I’ve always had the best luck selling on eBay, but there are a few other places you can try… tacktrader.com, bitsandbridles.com, equinenow.com, horseclicks.com, chronicle of the horse forums (have to pay), horsegroomingsupplies.com forum (have to be an active member), craigslist, ebay classifieds
Would be cool if Smartpak could include a classifieds section of the forum….

If you put the medium tree saddle on a website that Leslie listed, I may just buy it from you!
I second the Smartpak classifieds, that would be pretty cool.September 18, 2013 at 11:59 amDragon TeaTopics Started: 4Replies Posted: 18
Ricks Heritage Saddlery has a great selection.

Did you end up listing your saddles anywhere?October 10, 2013 at 6:25 pmNinaJDTopics Started: 8Replies Posted: 139
Craigslist is awesome.
I’ve sold 3 saddles and bought 2 from that site.
I don’t know many other places that do used that are online.

Thanks for all the comments! I decided not to sell my Medium tree Innovation. While it doesn’t fit my own big horse, it fits 95% of horses so it’ll be useful when I ride other horses, which I do quite often. The narrow Stabilizer is up on EBay – if anyone is interested, let me know. What an awesome forum!October 15, 2013 at 4:47 pmSmartPaker Sarah
