    Tips on selling your saddle: figure out the fair market value, know your saddle, be honest.

    Fair market value: this can be tough, and I know that's what you're trying to do here. Start off browsing eBay. Don't look at the active listings, but the completed listings. See what similar saddles sold for. Saddles will sell for more if you can sell it locally than on eBay, so the value you figure out from this should be on the low end. Based on this, figure out what is the minimum you'd be willing to sell it for. Now you know what you WANT to get for it. Put the price you want in your ad. Be prepared to negotiate down to your minimum.

    Know every possible detail about your saddle. In your ad, be sure to have the correct seat size, bar-size, type of saddle (barrel, roping, etc), and any other measurements or details that could be helpful. Provide a picture straight from the side, straight from the front, from the top, and from the bottom. Know everything else about your saddle: any flaws, manufacturer, type of leather, model name or number. You won't be able to figure out everything, just know as much as you can. If people ask questions about your saddle, you want to give them an honest, accurate answer. It increases your credibility, and hence the buyer's confidence in their purchase.

    It's a very pretty saddle. Take some good pictures - clear and in good (flattering) lighting.

    Good luck!

    If I were you, I would price it at $249 with shipping included.

    I think that in it's lightly used, damaged condition it's probably worth $225.
    It's like driving a car off the lot, once it's off, the price takes a big hit (sorry!)

    Then if you can sell it at $249 the buyer sort of splits the shipping cost.

    You have to make it worth it for them to take the risk of buying from you vs. buying a new one. Lots of pictures help.

    I think they thought it was odd because most barrel saddles have more forward hung stirrups to let you get a balanced and deeper seat.

    Great attitude, hope you sell your saddle for the price you want and soon, all you need is to find the one person who is looking for exactly what you have.
