Used Saddles
Can anyone tell me what a sightly used Collegiate size 14" close contact saddle is worth? Want to sell and have no idea where to price it. Thx!

A consignment tack store near me has a used Collegiate (16.5") close contact for sale for $350. It appears to be in pretty decent condition.

Thanks. Being that this saddle is smaller, 14" vs 16.5", does that decrease the value? Meaning, if the 16.5 is selling for $350, would a 14" say sell for $250?
Or, being that they do not make this saddle any longer, does that increase it's value?
Sorry, I am very horse illiterate.
Your help is much appreciated!

I don't think it would decrease it's value, but I do think it will make it harder to sell. I'd say it would be best to offer it at $350, but mention that you're willing to look at offers.

You wouldn't want to advertise it too low and realize that you could have gotten more for it!
