    Default tack stores that take trade-in saddles

    While saddle shopping I am realizing most are consignment only. I need to sell or trade-in towards upgrading to buy a new one. But can't afford to leave it on consignment for weeks bc I am currently without a saddle that fits my horse. I now do all schooling bareback, including jumping!

    I would like to find something in the next week or two but I don't want to look when I can't afford to buy immediately. I know Ricks does, but shipping saddles back and forth to try towards a trade isn't cost effective. Need something between Charlotte/Atlanta/Charleston area.

    Doesn't seem like they are selling well on ebay right now. Ideas??

    the tack shop I used to work in used to do trade-ins but don't anymore as they had a huge inventory of consignment and new saddles. It's probably not very cost effective for them any more.

    Farm House takes trade ins, I thought?
    Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.
