1976 Tex Tan western equatation saddle

Hi, I have a 1976 Hereford Tex Tan western equatation saddle that I want to sell at our local tack sale. I have looked on the internet and can't find anything really to help me price it. It is in excellent conditon and really not used all that much as I have horses off and on and just recently purchased a horse that it does not fit and I need the money to buy a saddle that does fit.

Anyone out there know approximately how much I should ask for it? I have no clue how to post pic's as I know that would be helpful..Thanks..

The older saddles like the Tex Tan were certainly built better then the ones made today. Their trees were usually bullhide covered hardwood which made them heavy. An Equitation seat is not as popular as a roper would be, however.

If the tree is in perfect condition, then it comes down to the condition of the leather. If the strings, the fenders, or the skirt are not cracked, or dry, then the saddle could be worth $350 - $500.

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.
