The great saddle debacle is ongoing and I am ramping it up now that I realized I have my Zaldi to jump in now and nothing else. Sigh. Let’s hope I don’t fall off before I find a new saddle.
So now I have been researching sale sites and consignment places. Most seem to to take 25 percent off the cut which I am fine with. I am going to place the dressage saddle on consignment since I KNOW that has the most value of my two saddles.
But what would you do? Would you try to sell outright so as to get cash sooner (But maybe not as much cash) or wait on a consignment.
The few I have researched are MD Tack Exchange (Not interested in my brand so skipped that one), Pelham Saddlery (they have a very lucrative saddle consignment program and do detailing of the saddle too which i would totally go for), and I have a local Maryland Saddlery in Hockessin that doesn’t have their info on consignment online so need to stop and ask them, and a few others I have researched.
I know some of you sell via Facebook. I don’t have a huge Facebook presence so not sure if that is the way to go. Any recommendations or complaints about any particular consignment shops? Because we know I can’t make a damn decision for myself anymore 🙂
In other news: Remus shoe is back on (yay)! Time to get going again on him. I have a lesson with Emily tomorrow (Dressage) and a lesson with Sally on Wednesday. (Jumping) And a Combined Training next Sunday at Straight Up. Whoohoo…
Yes nothing like diving right in full scale! Nothing half-assed here! I hope Remus is ready to get back to work! HA
PS The Dover Tent sale is going on. I know I don’t often find good enough sales there but I can’t not GO. If you live in the DE/PA/MD area it is better to go on Friday than try to find parking on the weekend there!!
