How much is my old saddle worth?
2 Attachment(s)
Does anyone know how much I should ask when I sell my saddle here?
It's a 16" FQHB western saddle with endurance stirrups.
Solid tree/horn and good fleece + beautiful designing.
Has 1 or 2 cosmetic flaws on the outside stitching ( doesn't affect use )
note pics...what do you think?

Based on condition, age and styling, most Saddles like that sell for 150.00 to maybe 200.00 max.

I think it must depend on where you are. Out here (Arizona) you can't get a saddle that nice for $200. If you did, you would feel like you stole it. :lol:

Where I am at, that would likely bring $300-$400. And the people that resell tack would likely ask even more. 19 years ago when I was a newbie, I couldn't find a used saddle under $500! Since then I have found a few bargains, but they are far and few between.

PS. Does this saddle have any kind of brand or maker's mark on it? It looks like it was a quality saddle at one time, even though it is well used now.

If it has Blevins and a makers mark, around $400 or more if not, $200.

I don't SEE any brand names but I've been known to miss them...where would they be?

Usually on the latigo keeper on the left side (although those are sometimes replaced on an older saddle because they can rip out) or on the little triangular piece of leather behind the cantle where the skirts are sewn together right behind the seat.

They can be marked in other places too, but those are the most common.

Blevins is the name of a designer and manufacturer of stirrup buckles. Started in Wheatland, WY and became very popular and common.
