Collegiate Saddle and more.

My wife used to ride English Horses and has a Collegiate Saddle, show bridle, practice bridle, reins, size 7.5 black leather riding boots, Lexington 7 and 1/8 show helmet and practice helmet. All of these are in great condition. We are looking to sell them all and are not sure where or what is the best way to do so. Any suggestions?

Well, for the seat size. Measure from the front of the saddle to the back.
as for the tree size, maybe ask your wife

Thanks for the help

That's a 17 inch seat, it says so right on the saddle pic you posted.

The correct way to measure is in a straight line from one of the buttons just below the pommel to the middle of the cantle.

That said, I suspect your price might be a little high. You're asking more than the new saddles are listed for.
You can see how your price compares to the other used saddles here (though yours is nicer than most of them)

Here are the completed listing for the used Collegiate saddles, so you can see what they've sold for.

Aha. I just realized you have all the other goodies included in the same listing. If it were me, I'd split the items out into individual listings. There's a good chance that the person looking for that saddle doesn't need boots in that size, or maybe doesn't need any of the other items and doesn't want to pay extra for things they don't need. List them separately, then mention in your listing that you have other related items as well, and that you'll combine shipping for multiple purchases, and I think you'll get more takers. At the price you're asking, people are also going to want to be pretty sure about the saddle fit. You may want to include more measurements of the gullet width and the tree width for starters. Lots of good threads on this forum showing you how to do both.

Have you tried your local Craigslist? It seems like saddles sell for more on Craigslist, because people seem more comfortable paying more for something that they can actually inspect, touch, handle, before buying it.

I hope you haven't taken this as critical. Just trying to help you out. It's a lovely saddle, and you should do quite well with it. Good luck.
