Best ways to sell a used saddle
Please forgive me if this has been recent topic of discussion, but my search turned up nothing. Feel free to link to a thread if this has been discussed in the past month or so.
Long story short, I'm looking to sell one of my used saddles, a Smith-Worthington Beaufort Lux/Trainer combo. It was a "Design Your Own" model I had made about 7-8 years ago and I have kept it in great condition, but it simply no longer fits my needs or my horse. I've attempted to contact Smith-Worthington as I'm not sure if they take older saddles on consignment to allow clients to try, but haven't heard anything yet. If they don't have any options like that, I would like to find a place to take my saddle that could sell it for me. Does anyone have any recommendations for places that sell used saddles? I live in CT so a reputable place in this area would be preferred, but I'm also willing to send it someplace to sell (is that crazy?). I do have 1-2 tack shops in mind in the immediate area; however items usually sit for a long time before they sell. I understand a saddle is a pricier item than say boots or a jacket, but I don't want to be waiting for a year to have an inquiry made. I also want a place that can give me an honest and knowledgeable current market price for the saddle. I bought it new for around $3,600, but I know it's not a "popular" brand right now, and also isn't a regular stocked saddle. I'm not expecting some crazy amount for it, just fair.
Anyone have any thoughts/opinions/suggestions?
