I am looking to sell my Simco saddle soon since it is too narrow for my wide mares. The only problem is that I don't have a clue how much it is worth... I bought it used several years ago. I don't know how much I paid for it though since I traded in another saddle to the seller and then paid the difference.
Since I bought it used, I don't know much about the saddle, other than that it is a 16" trail saddle. I have tried searching online for a similar saddle, but I have had no luck in identifying it. (I just emailed Simco about it, so hopefully they will email me back soon...)
The model number from the tie carrier is "2000", and the manufacturer date number that I could find under the skirt was 999 (meaning it was made in September 1999? According to the Simco website...).
The tie carrier and model number:
Here are some pictures that I took this afternoon:
I replaced the short latigo since it was missing when I bought the saddle. It's made by Tory, but matches almost perfectly:
The only major flaw saddle has is a scratch in the seat from a belt buckle (it was gently used over the last couple years at a summer camp for children)
Do you guys have any clue how much this saddle could be worth?
