So, I hear a lot of varying opinions regarding purchasing Tack and Horse Products on eBay. Let's hear your BEST and WORST times on eBay!!
My BEST: I'd say...about a year ago, I found a tack shop selling two brand new Masta Turnout Heavyweight waterproof/breathable blankets size 84 with the full neck coverage for $15 each Buy-it-Now!! Their retail price was $225 at the time. I didn't even own a horse, but I snagged them up fast! Six months down the road, I bought my first horse...winter came along...and wa-lah he's an 84!
My WORST: I haven't had too many bad experiences...but one time I bought a Crosby saddle and the seller shipped it in a box that they picked up from the Grocery Store that was used to hold fruit (the kind with the little air holes). Well, the box couldn't handle USPS and it got smooshed and broke the Crosby's tree! Luckily, I had paid for insurance, and (eventually) got my money back from USPS (minus the shipping fees of course).
