    And all saddles arent supposed to be made the same way.... So who cares where the stirrup placement is at

    Put a price of $350. Buyers will want to talk you down anyway so you may as well have a margin. Take pics to present it as best you can, not on the horse. Take a second pic of whatever is going with it. If asked, do not mention you are selling it for a better one, just that it doesn't fit your horse. And that is likely the truth so you're not lying. Take advantage of all the bulletin boards if any of your stores have them as they are usually free and everyone reads them.

    The colors will definitely attract women (not men) so that will cut your marketing group in half so you might try dropping a few flyers off at barns that conduct playdays or maybe even your local 4H group - they usually have a list of folks that they can forward the info to, and there are lots of girls/women that hang out in those the info you got here - shipping, flyers at stores, etc is good advice so you've got lots of places to get started with. Good luck!

    Please don't confuse honest feedback with rudeness, no one set out to be rude, you asked you got answers, that's how it goes.

    Word of warning, when you are selling stuff people will often try and talk you down with negative comments, or if they don't like what they see they will be rude, you kind of have to deal with all that.

    And sometimes someone will show up and treat you like a fool in hopes of getting it for next to nothing. Don't engage in conversation with these people, just walk away or hang up. Or the "know it all" who thinks he/she's finding all these faults with the saddle when they really don't know what they are talking about. I hope you don't run into them but they're out there. Good Luck.

    I realise not all saddles are made the same. There is still a difference between quality and quantity. My question about the stirrup placement was simply a question for the rest of the knowledgable people engaged in this thread. I mostly ride english, so I am not aware that the stirrups could be placed that far back. It could be the camera angle or it could be the fact that the saddle was made for quantity. Simply a question as it looked odd to me.

    If you have a feedstore/western wear store that sells tack, you may be able to put the saddle up on consignment. The fee is usually (from my experience anyway) based on what your asking for the saddle, under $300 you may only pay 5% as an example. The only saddle I have ever sold on ebay was a Wintec english saddle, because in the area I lived in You couldn't give away even a NICE english saddle.

    These cheaply made saddles are NOTORIOUS for fitting poorly because they are made by companies (in china/india/mexico) that have no clue/care about the back/build of an american horse. Hell I have even heard of some of these places that used CARDBOARD for the inner riggings of the saddle... I say cut your losses, and look around for a nice used name brander. Not going to be the cheapest route, but It'll last you years, and if you have to sell it on down the road, youll get far closer to what you paid for it, than with this saddle you have now.

    And I agree about the fender placement. Seems a little off to me. I know on those barrels saddles the fenders have to be more free swinging than say on a roper, but they do seems kinda far back. Maybe I'm wrong though.
