Creates a Used Saddle Blue Book

Share Article's experts begins a used saddle blue book, where customers can evaluate the worth of their used saddle.

The used saddle business is booming at Saddles arrive to be placed in the consignment program and the saddle experts collect used saddles from all over the country to offer to their customers. The saddle experts frequently get calls from customers wondering how much their used saddle is worth. Unfortunately, very little information is available for determining the worth of a saddle. That's why the experts decided to begin a detailed blue book as a free resource for saddle owners.

Linda Fish, the saddle expert in charge of the used saddle department, uses her knowledge of different manufacturers and her record of the shop's past sales to begin to determine the price of a used saddle. She then thoroughly inspects, cleans, and measures the saddle. But without a firsthand once-over with a saddle, giving a specific price recommendation to a customer over the phone can be rather difficult. "That's where our blue book comes in handy," explained Fish. "We've given our customers full access to all the used saddles we've sold in the past and what they were sold for. If you have a used saddle, all you have to do is compare it to a similar model and you can find a starting point for pricing your own."

The blue book currently contains over 150 saddles and is rapidly growing, thanks to the high turnover rate of their used saddle department. The blue book only stands to get more detailed and thorough as the experts turn over more used saddles. "Our used saddles spend little time with us after they're inspected and photographed," Fish stated. "Everyone really appreciates the time we take to make sure the saddles are clean, tight, and reasonably priced."
