Tips for selling my saddle...

So, I am selling my saddle, and I would really like tips and pointers on writing a good ad, and getting it as much exposure and interest as I can, and what I should do.
I got it last year from the woman who won it in a rodeo in 2001, and never rode in it. It's a Courts barrel racing saddle, The seat is exactly 15", semi quarter horse bars, it's in good shape, I really liked it, it is comfortable. I believe the tree is ralide, the skirt is 23 inches, and it has neat basket weave tooling.

Will share pictures tomorrow. :)

It was listed for $550, but I paid $500 for it, which I believe was a very reasonable price, because it's a very solid, well taken care of saddle. Seeing that I'm using the money to buy a camera, I really don't want to sell it for any less than $500.

I recently emailed Courts saddlery, with pictures of the saddle, and this is what they told me;
The saddle you have (the 30794 is the style #) is a barrel saddle on a ralide, LM Style, semi-quarter horse tree. The gullet width is 6 1/2". It has an embossed basket weave pattern.

Look for FB saddle selling pages, as that is where I see a lot of saddles move fast.

As well as Barrel Racing pages too.
