My boyfriend just bought what looks to be a very similar saddle, Circle Y Equitation about 15 yrs old, great condition, breast collar with no silver, no headstall. They were asking $750 CDN and I think he got it for $650. I thought it was a great deal. He bought it for trail riding. I think the only thing going against you is that it is my understanding that the "in" shade for show saddles is currently a light tan as opposed to the classic dark brown that your saddle is. Beautiful saddle, hope you get what you want for it!

Yeah, I know it's not completely in style right now. But I personally think it looks prettier on the dark horses than the light oil saddles do. Haha. I just want to try to get what I can for it-I just don't know how much that is!

I personally think it is a gorgeous set and a brand name. I would ask 1000$ with hopes of maybe getting it negotiated down to 800$

If you still have this saddle, is it Semi QH bars or Full QH Bars?

Thanks.

There isn't a single circle Y that sells for less than 1000. This doesn't look worn at all and looks like an all purpose saddle you could get a pretty penny out of it. Go to Circle Y's website maybe to get an estimate.

Well the market isn't too good at this time of year, and the older dark color probably isn't anything someone is going to buy to show in. As a 1996 saddle it is 15 years old and a lot of people are leery of the care it may or may not have received. You may be better off trying to sell it on consignment through a local tack shop. That way your possible buyer will see it in person.

Saddles on ebay of this color usually don't sell that high, and then ebay and paypal eat all your sale price in fees. After that UPS or the postoffice gets their bite in near $50 to $75 depending on weight and insurance.

That being said most buyers will be looking to use it as a trail saddle and that is where they look at all the silver and think how badly it will look after its been on a few trail rides and slammed into trees, rubbed against trailers.

If you have to sell it online I would try for $550 and be willing to wiggle on the price if you really want a different saddle.

That being said I picked up a very nice little TexTan show saddle, medium oil, 10 years old, well cared for with a 15" seat for $350. The girl had it listed for a couple of weeks, I made the offer and said if she couldn't sell it to let me know. No takers came forward so I bought it.

Its a nice saddle, but I see them all the time and they sit for quite a while before they sell. In our area even the light colors are around for a long time, but our economy is still in the toilet.

Good luck with your sale!

I'd say $1,150 for the complete set.

The saddle looks about $1,000
The bridle $100
And the breast collar $50

I would love to buy it, but simply cannot afford much at the time. I am mainly looking for show bridles and breast collars, though. Although I would love a few show and lesson saddles.

I am a big fan of the older dark color, but as you say, many showers prefer the light orangey color, which in my opinion, is highly overrated, as I have way too much tack of that color as it is. But this is true!
