    To Sell Or Not To Sell...

    That is the question. Lol Seriously though, how do you decide when to sell off equipment you are not using? I'm torn. I changed riding disciplines from hunter/jumpers to dressage. I've accumulated a ton of English equipment over the years and am no longer using it. I can't decide if I should sell it off or not. Some of it took a long time to save up for. An example, my Edgewood figure eight bridle. Any advice?

    Much to my wife frustration I never get rid of anything that goes twice for tack. I am a tack nut. I might trade for something but my briddle hucks are full full full I really only use maybe three briddles but "ya never know", "its better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it".

    Looking purely at economics, the second-hand tack market has been on the floor in the UK for the last couple of years, so I suspect it's not particularly buoyant over there. Saddles in particular are not making much money unless they're from well-known, desirable manufacturers.

    I'd go with CowboyBob - hang onto it unless you're really desperate for space, at least until the economy picks up a bit.

    Bob, does that go for tools and car parts too? When it comes to tack it should be cleaned at least once yearly even if not in use.

    I'll never sell yummy tack that still fits me and my horse. Both of us can be tricky to fit, so maybe that's part of it. I am a purge & declutter type, so a piece has to be exceptional and easy to store to hang around unused.

    Lower end stuff that you're not using and would be easy and affordable to replace, I would sell. Higher end stuff, especially things that maybe you saved up for or what have you, I would hold on to for a while.

    Better to sell it. You can always buy different (better) stuff later.

    Christ if I didn't sell the stuff that I'm not using for Sky.. we'd have THREE sheds full. Including bits that just didn't even fit him. Blehhh!
