I have been searching for that elusive used county dressage saddle [edit]. I have looked from ebay to tack trader. Post a link to where you like to search for a used saddle.

I have been to:

Pelham Saddlery
Heritage
Fine Used Saddles
Dressage Star
St Croix

and a few others. Have I missed any?

Horsetopia has a tack section under other classifieds if you can do a wide.

Wow, I did not see the first one... how did I miss it? I saw the second one and I am thinking about taking it out on trial but was hoping to find something a little newer. I love the 1st one you posted.

You can call County and see if they have a demo. That's how I got my last 3, including an absolutely droolworthy Bull leather Connection

Yes! This!

I got my Connection from County, too. It was a demo. Gorgeous saddle at a great price!

I noticed that glitch on Horsetopia. I looked under saddles… where most people would look & didn't find any listed. By accident I used the default search & up one pops!

Recommend eBay as well. LOTS of traffic.

I sold a saddle on www.tacktrader.com; haven't looked to see what they have now, but give it a look!

FWIW, I tried two Perfection demos and hated them. IMHO, the velcro flaps are a compromise you may not want to make -- velcro does not age well, and on one saddle I tried the flap had been bolted into place -- what does that tell you? Some of the cheaper ebay saddles were demos but they don't tell you that until you ask.

Ebay has had the Perfection saddles pretty regularly, albeit they are not inexpensive. I was also looking for a 17" medium tree.

I found a 17.5" perfection, medium tree, in brown for $2300 (bridle thrown in!) on Ebay. Keep looking.

Oooohhhhhh... wow! There are a few here I have not seen yet. Thank you.

I have also not seen the Middleburg site.

Thank you so much guys! I knew my COTH friends would have more suggestions.

Thanks for the heads up about the adjustable knee rolls on the demo models. That is extremely helpful.

We removed the specifics about the saddle wanted and some specific references to saddles being sold to comply with our advertising policies.
