It's an older saddle with no padded flaps. This style of saddle is not popular anymore. $500 is reasonable, but you'll have a hard time selling it because of the flap style.

You won't sell it well on eBay if you don't have a decent amount of recent feedback on an established account. New accounts with less than 5 feedbacks rarely sell things high. If you don't have an established account with good feedback, then have a friend try to sell it under their account.

ya I have an ebay account with quite a bit of feedback on it and I think your right about the flap thing I was thinking the same thing. I will just have to find someone that likes the non padded flap. It just means they have to find there leg positioning more than having the padded flap do it for you.

I've been slowly replacing our school horse tack mostly with used collegiates. The lynn palm models are fantastic but as everyone said, the plain flaps are hard to sell because everyone wants a knee roll these days. I've spent anywhere from $160-400 (for a brand new) collegiate. I don't think $500 is unreasonable to ask but there will be much cheaper ones out there that people are going to opt for. If you really want to sell it I'd drop the price down to at least $400 if not $375.

I post on tacktrader.com and bitsandbarter.proboards.com with some success. They're free.

I just sold my brand new Bates on Ebay for $1200. I paid about $66 in fees.

also, what size is it? I have noticed there are a lot of 17 floating around out there and not as many buyers. Lots of 17.5s as well but lots of people want them. 18s are harder to find so prices are a little higher. Keep in mind that sizes (supply/demand) affect what people are willing to pay!

Ya I bought the saddle for around 650 or 700 and so I havent used it much and am wanting to get some money off of it so the lowest I would probably go is $475. It's a 16.5" saddle.

You might want to try usedsaddles.com. Their saddles usually go through there fast. I believe you have to ship the saddle to them, then they sell it for you. I am not sure what % they take for consignment. I would say it is worth $500, it looks like it is in great shape. The used lynn palms at the consignment shop near me were going for $450-475 and not nearly as nice as yours. I personally prefer the plain flap.

padded flaps cost $250 to add

But you or buyer could add Wintec / Bates rolls / small blocks for about $50 - $75 for saddler to put Velcro on there + the $40 - $45 for the rolls / blocks. Bates are leather covered and dye, and Wintec are plastic.

UsedSaddles.com is actually Lightning G Tack Shop located in Lagrangeville, NY. While they are a great tack shop and nice to deal with (I often go there myself)....they won't take in a plain flap saddle.

UsedSaddles.com's *NEW* Website

Here is a plain flap, 17' collegiate on the usedsaddes.com. Looks to be in similar condition - asking $450.
