new 17" close contact saddle

Another of the barn owner's saddles. It's new and has just been sitting in the barn. I think the damage on the cantle is from the saddle being moved around in the barn by various boarders. Measures a 17" seat. Suede knee rolls. $100

I can ship via Parcel Post with delivery confirmation, and I take PayPal.

Money made from the sale of this saddle will go toward building a cross-country course!

Nobody's making you any offers, because that thing isn't worth $100.00. It was made in Pakistan, which means the leather and workmanship are garbage.

You might be able to sell it for $50.00 at a local tack swap, but the most I'd give you for it is $20.00.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I voiced a similar sentiment and was still asked to list it for $100. I have not ridden in it but was told that it does not ride like cardboard.

I will pass along your opinion.

I have seen those saddles mess up more than a few backs and they're not comfortable to ride in either. FWIW. I wish you luck in getting the funds for your xc course though!
