    Default Another selling saddle question

    Any suggestion on the best website to use to sell a County? Is there a specific website that could sell it better than another?

    www.highendusedsaddles.com Cori is amazing and will sell it quickly. Also try www.fineusedsaddles.com.

    If you are selling yourself - I just sold a high-end name-brand saddle on horseclicks.com.

    I had planned to consign but got a local buyer first; I would recommend Rachel at iselltack.com if you are wanting to consign.

    ETA: Rachel charges 15% commission, whereas most other places I've seen charge 20-30%.

    If you are consigning, I would use fine-used-saddles.com. Patricia is great to deal with and I know that is who my local County rep recommends. She just sold a saddle for me, not County, but another high end brand.

    I have sold several saddles on my own via tacktrader and similar sites. Now e everyone seems to be using Facebook to sell stuff, but I'm not a FB-er!

    She was wonderful and professional to work with.
