    Default Where to list me saddle.

    I had to take my saddle back from this irritating person on ebay....Now I need to figure out where to list my saddle. I don't want to put it on ebay again because I lost $100 in fees that I won't get back even though the buyer was wrong about it being defective. So, if you were trying to sell a county innovation where would you list it?

    Probably the fineusedsaddles.com website. Or try on Facebook through the tack trader sites. Sorry about your bad experience, that SUCKS!

    Told ya they'd make you take it back! Ebay is miserable.

    Second the FineUsedSaddles, or Pelham Saddlery or Trumbull Mountain. They all get a ton of traffic and deal in the higher priced saddles.

    I've also had good luck with the classifieds in the forums at Horse Grooming Suppliles. Tacktrader, too.

    Use Amazon Payments, too, there are no fees to either party, and there's no "buyer protection" aka "I've decided this saddle doesn't fit my horse and am going to send it back even though you said no returns."

    I've had nothing but bad luck TackTrader. Nothing but scammers wanting to 'expedite payment as fast as possible.'

    horseclicks.com FREE Photo ads!
    I've sold multiple saddles (prestige, black country etc) through this website. I have mostly accepted Paypal but have gotten a couple checks. No problems ever, knock on wood!
    Things happen for a reason...so when I reach over and smack you upside the head, just remember...you gave me a reason!

    HAHA. I started the thread with my phone...I hate when I hit the wrong letter. Any idea how I fix the title?

    Also, I haven't seen any CC county saddles sell on fine used saddles since may so I am hesitant to send it there. I will try horseclicks.

    My friend just sent hers to Pelham...I think.

    She called around to the different stores and talked to them about the saddle--Pelham sold her the best deal. : ) Sometimes stores are better at selling types of saddles.
    She chose Pelham because they were really excited about the type and size and and they didn't have tons of that style currently in stock--which makes it easier to sell.

    MorganJumper - it looks like I'll be right there with you selling a County

    We have a great local sight - nchorsenews.com that I am going to try. Pelham saddlery also, along with the local Pony Clubs and Facebook.

    Good Luck!
