Need advice on pricing a western saddle

Hi everyone! I am trying to sell a Double T western saddle 16 1/2 " saddle. I am unsure as what to price it at, since i'm new to the horse seen. I am hoping I am using this as the right place to ask this...maybe you guys can help me? Here is some info on it:

DOUBLE T SADDLERY

WESTERN SADDLE

16-1/2" Seat

2-3/4" Tread Bell Stirrups

Nylon Lined Stirrup Leathers

Black Basket Weave with Floral Carving

Silver Metal Accents with Dots

Latigo

Nylon Lined Leather Off-Billets

5-1/2" Gullet Width

Blevins Buckles

I was thinking about listing it on Ebay or tacktrader.com, but don't really know what it's true value could be. Here are some pics:









Sorry for the poor pics. I just took them really quick.
TIA for your advice :)[/img]

I just got $350 for a no name western saddle. I sold it through a local saddle maker. It looked similar to yours

Good idea, the shipping on a standard western saddle can be a killer for the buyer on ebay. I know mine weighed around 40 lbs. A lot of tack shops take consignments, check around.

I just Googled your saddle's name and came up with a few dealers who sell the saddle new in the $450-500 range. Hope that helps.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
