    Arg, wheres my saddle??

    Really frustrated, I bought a saddle weeks ago. The seller sent it out on March 18th and its still not here! There is only info on the saddle that it was accepted at the post office in MI, and nothing else. I have made several phone calls to the post office and no one can seem to tell me where the darned thing is!! They said to wait 14 days, well its been over 14 days and still nothing. How hard is it to find an enormous box with a western saddle in it?
    I have had my new mare here 2 weeks now and all I can do it ride her bareback around the yard. I want to actually go out on the trails, I just don't dare to bareback and not really knowing her.
    Anyone ever had issues getting a saddle mailed through the post office?

    I use the Post Office almost exclusively when shipping a saddle and have not had a problem. One thing I always do is to insure the package, hopefully yours is insured.

    If the package is going via Parcel Post, and you live a good way from MI, it could take 2 weeks to get to you.

    Just talked to the post office again today. They said the saddle SHOULD have been here by now. Something is definitely not right here.
    I have used parcel post to send an english saddle from PA to WA and it only took one week to get there.

    I'm really sorry to hear about that. Is it insured?

    Nope, not insured. I would have gotten it insured if it had been me. The seller shipped to me for free. I got it from a private online tack store.

    What have they said about it?

    I'm crossing my fingers for you and hoping the saddle shows up still. Have you tried contacting your local post office? Maybe they are just slow about getting it to you.

    My local post office doesn't have the saddle. I filed a complaint online last week, they are they ones that answered that. They e-mail me again early this morning saying it still hasn't showed up there. Also filed another complaint on the phone, they will get back to me in 2 business days

    The seller e-mailed this afternoon and said she could send me another saddle to use in the meantime then send it back when (if) I get the one I bought, which was really nice of her. But I'll still be waiting around for one saddle or another, and then will be stuck shipping one back. Or both if they don't even fit my horse.

    Guess its my own fault for buying online! I wish we had some decent western tack stores around here.

    Not at all ... next time, just be sure it's insured. That was nice of the seller to offer to replace the saddle.

    No kidding. I was going to ask if maybe you had fallen under one of those fraudulant adds. Really glad to hear that you can get replaced. Maybe that store will start setting up insurance for their packages. Is there any way to borrow a friend's or maybe even neighbors saddle? You poor thing, must be torture especially since it's a new horse. Good luck with getting your saddle replaced
