I keep meaning to just stick this on the bottom of one of my posts, but then I get done writing, hit "Publish", and have forgotten yet again. So I figured I'd just make it its own post before I forget for the third week in a row.
I'm selling my jump saddle. I love it, and I'd love to keep it, but it's just a hair too wide on Bobby even with a half pad that he gets a little back sore if I ride in it too many days in a row.
It's a 17.5" seat with a wide tree. I'm asking $450 for it, plus $35 shipping. Including shipping, that's barely more than I paid for it when I bought it last year. It's in great condition. I clean it regularly, and it lives safely locked up in my locker with a saddle cover on it and a towel padding the saddle rack. It has the usual wear marks on it (see pictures), but there's absolutely nothing structurally wrong with it.
I really want to sell it to someone I know (I also have it listed at my barn) because selling something as expensive as a saddle really freaks me out. I've read your horror stories. People are nutso.
If anyone is interested, or knows someone that they know is not a psycho that might be interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
