Where do you go to find reputable used saddles?
Hi! I am new to posting, but have been hiding in the shadows for a little while now. I have been trying to find a used 17.5" CWD 3C or 17.5" Delgrange 5X flap for the past year. I have become quite a nuisance on eBay, CWD sellier, Maryland tack exchange, Iselltack, and a few other websites :wink: Have you found a good place to buy, apparently, hard to find saddles? I appreciate any help. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum! St Croix Saddlery has some very nice saddles. You can go into their store, which is in Minnesota, or order online. I was planning on ordering a Stubben Parzival dressage saddle from their website, but I got it for Christmas :) I also ordered a helmet and saddle pad from them. I live down south and it came in in 3 days. Very nice staff and nice saddles.

If there are any local tack shops, I'd definitely check them out. I like looking over a saddle in person and being able to sit in it to feel if I fit or not. Most tack shops will sell used saddles!

Thanks! I didn't see any at St. Croix saddlery but I will keep checking periodically.
I need to check the local tack shops again. I'm not sure how likely it is for them to carry such a forward flap.

How much are you looking to spend?
I ended up looking so long and hard for a good used saddle that fit what I wanted that I ended up stumbling across an amazing clearance deal on a new saddle, lol!
But maybe if you post your budget people will spot some deals online and send them your way.

I second St. Croix Saddlery- I got my dressage saddle from them and was quite happy with them.
The problem with knowing what you want is finding it :-) I looked for a couple months before buying my saddle, and even at that I ended up getting a slightly different (but almost as awesome) model from the same manufacturer, with a seat size 1/2" bigger than I really wanted.

The Tackeria in Wellington, FL carries a wide variety of used saddles and are very good to deal with. A call or email will let you know if they have exactly what you want.

Thank you all for the great suggestions!
I am hoping to find one of those saddles for under $2500. I have already tried a few different variations priced very nicely at under $1600, but unfortunately my hip to knee was too long for those which is why I am looking for two very specific flap sizes (as well as bc I fell in love with their fit).
