In addition to offering free equine classifieds, now accepts used saddles for consignment.

These days everyone is looking for ways to save a buck. Those riders who are enjoying the unparalleled experience of October trail riding are also feeling the pinch of feeding, housing, and caring for their equine friends., an online saddle shop specializing in American-made saddles and tack, strives to make owning a horse less of a financial burden, keeping their prices as low as possible and working strictly on volume. Now the online shop offers one more way to save some money or even make some - saddle consignment.

Selling an unwanted used saddle without loosing money can be very difficult. The chances of finding a local buyer who has just the right size horse and saddle needs are pretty slim. Many people turn to Craig's list or Ebay, but are unsure of how to price the saddle, measure the saddle, or photograph it properly. And even with a larger audience products can be easily ignored or lost in the swarm of listings, never attracting the right buyer.

At sellers can either list their saddle for free on, the shop's free equine classifieds section, or submit it to the consignment program by sending it to the shop. Thousands of potential customers visit every day looking for a saddle; this large volume of customers ensures that the used saddles are seen by thousands of people instead of being lost in the internet or on Ebay. The process starts by the shop shipping the exact box and packing material the seller needs, as well as a shipping label. Once at the shop, saddle experts measure and weigh the saddle, providing the correct specifications. The shop's professional photographers photograph the saddle, providing the same quality shots that the shop's customers love. The used saddle is then listed and displayed to customers using the SaddleExperts recommendation system.

"We're proud of how the program is working for our customers so far," stated saddle expert Jason Webb. "We've thought out the whole process for potential buyers and sellers and have made it as easy as possible to buy or sell a used saddle."

Those who are looking for a quality used saddle will benefit from being able to pick from the cream of the crop. The saddles are inspected, photographed, and given a suggested price by our saddle experts. Customers can be sure that the saddles are not misrepresented and put their fear of online scams to rest. The shop also offers free shipping, which saves the customer upwards of sixty dollars on each sale. The consignment saddles are backed with a two week return period, which is unheard of when buying a used saddle anywhere else.

"With the stock market and the economy the way it is today, none of us are looking to take risks with our money," Webb stated. "With proper documentation, accurate photographs, and a two-week return policy, we've made used saddles risk-free and more inexpensive than ever."
