Reasonable price for passier saddle

I am trying to sell a Passier Hanover dressage saddle, in great condition (I got it barely used, and have ridden it a few times since!) and I am wondering if anyone knows a good price to ask for it? I don't know much about the brand of the saddle, although I've heard that Passier Hanovers can go for up to $2000 (this didn't come from a very reliable source, however :( ). Does anyone know anything about the Passier brand, or even better, the model? I'm asking $850, but I have no idea if that is reasonable...I got it for $750, and the seller told me that was a giveaway price, so I increased by $100 (plus I need the money for a new saddle). Any information/feedback would be greatly appreciated, posetive or negative.

Passiers are GREAT saddles! They run new in the $2,000-4,000 range. I don't think they make the Hannover anymore. I have not heard of it, except in seeing used saddles.

Most used Passiers go for anywhere from $600-2000,depending on model, color, and condition. If yours is black and common seat/tree size, then you should have no problem selling it for $850. Here's one for sale for $1,200:

Thanks for the response!

Mine isn't quite the same as that one; it only has a pencil knee roll, and a molded flap, and it is brown. It is in as good, if not better, shape, though. I'd like to get as much as I can for it, because I'm depending on the money to get me a new saddle for my TB, so do you think I could ask as much as like $900 + reasonably? I also need to sell it as soon as I can. I tried to upload some pics, but they wouldn't come through.

No, you won't get that much. Brown, plain flap, and pencil knee roll Dressage saddles are definitely not in style... Can you post a picture? I fit's a VSD (AP with a longer flap, halfway between AP and Dressage), you might be able to get a decent price for it, but if it's a true Dressage saddle, then you won't get much unfortunately.

What do you mean by "a true dressage saddle?" So because it is a pencil knee roll, do you think I should ask LESS then $850? Here, I'll try to post a picture...let me know if it doesn't come through.

It's not the pencil knee roll, it's the shape of the flap. With the flap that rounded in front, it looks more like a VSD than a regular Dressage saddle. A VSD is an All Purpose saddle that has a Dressage tendency; it has slightly longer and straighter flap, but not as long or as straight as a Dressage saddle.

Does it have a small billet flap? To cover the girth buckles? If so, what does it say on each one?

Thanks alot for the pic posting, Gingerrrr!

Thanks alot for the pic posting Gingerrr! Do you know what I did wrong? I will try to get up a picture of the buckle guard/billet flap...yes it does have one--I would have to look up what it says but I beleive it is something like Kohler.

So it doesn't have a pencil knee roll, just a molded flap? I do have it listed as a Dressage/AP saddle. So do you still think after seeing it that $850 is a good price?
