Is there a market for Western saddles?

Just curious how the market is lately. I'm thinking if I want to sell my western saddle (in like new condition) since I ride english 100% of time now.

I think it more so depends on the brand than anything. Even when the market dropped bad circle y and Tex tans were still selling as normal.

It's Alamo trail pleasure, leather, and awesomely comfortable (and fitting high withered horse). That's why I'm still in doubt if I want to sell it at all or should I combine western and english nevertheless.

Do a search for completed listings on eBay and see if any have sold lately. The market is tough on some. You could also check Horseclicks. They have quite a few listed. I am looking for a new reining saddle-in fact just came on to get some advice from the group. I want something that will hold its value-other than Circle Y. Not a fan.

If you like your Alamo I would probably just keep it as you will not have much of a resale value. My daughter has a Double J Lynn McKenzie Special and I ride in a Cowboy Tack saddle both of which have great resale value. I was offered $1800 for my saddle LOL.. it is not going anywhere!!!

Thanks, Nag! I actually checked tacktrader out of interest and used Alamos are pretty high in price. I don't know, I still can't decide. The problem is it's a good fit for both girls, so I feel kinda "greedy" to sell it. :)

If you don't need the money, I would not sell it. Western saddles that fit high withered horses can be difficult to find, should you decide you want to ride western again.

Thanks for advice, luvs! That's what I think too... Who knows... :)

Just curious (as I know you are an expert). Is it OK to keep saddle for years "not in use"?

I would say yes so long as you continue to take care of it. You might consider getting one of those fully enclosed saddle covers just to keep it dirt and dust free.
