    Default which tack stores take trade ins

    I need to trade dressage saddles, I have checked with Dover and Dressage Extensions and they don't. Do know who does?

    Where are you located?

    Some local places may do trade ins.

    Default Nothing local

    I am in Tifton Ga, the closest tack stores are 3 hours north in the Atlanta area and 3 hours south in Ocala Fla. I'll contact those already suggested, thanks.

    oh well...gee...there is a store in Rising Sun, MD that I know does a lot of consignment saddles....possibly a bit far from you, though! Wait, someone else suggested Ricks, which would be just as far.

    Hmm...now to remember the name of the place....

    Equus Now will trade your used saddle toward a new one. I don't know of any place that will trade a used saddle for a used saddle since they're normally on consignment.

    Default I have tried all of those that you suggested

    I want to trade my 2008, brand new with less than 10 rides Passier for a Custom Saddlery Wolfgang Solo or the Icon Flight and the stores mentioned so far don't carry the Custom saddles. But I'll keep looking. Thanks

    I need to move my 2008 Prestige out to get a County so I feel your pain.

    Have you contacted the Custom rep in your area to see if they do trades?

    Outright selling it has been a no go?

    Default nothing so far

    The rep knows I need to move my saddle first but they already have the same saddle in on trade so she wanted me to try to sell it, I put my saddle on ebay and while it had a bunch of folks watching it, in the end it was a no sale. Custom saddlery is pretty cool, they said I could have their saddle until mine sold but I don't want to do that, I'd rather move mine and then get theirs. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

    I have relisted my Prestige twice on Ebay already and it looks like a third time coming up.
    Like you, lots of watchers, but no takers.
    Good luck.
