Sale!

Of course with the purchase of a new saddle and copious saving happening to fund next year's show season, I've been trying to save money however I can. So, this month I made it my goal to clean out my tack boxes and finally sell all the things I've collected over the years and no longer use/need. Turns out, there's a lot of it.

I've photographed most of it, and have that listed below. More is coming, however, so I've made a page at the top of my blog where you can easily access my sale items. I'll keep that page current, adding things as I find them and cleaning things out that are sold. Enjoy!

I bring you... THE SALE LIST!

  2. What horse did the County fit? Flat-backed horse or more curvy? I'm looking for a dressage saddle for a Haffie with a very curvy back - I had a County a million years ago and LOVED IT.

    1. Haha, the horses it's fit best have been Jen of Cobjockey's Welsh Cob Connor, and Kelly of DressagePony's Cob Sinari.

      I'd say the chances of it fitting a Haffie are very, very good! The back panels have already been taken in slightly to accommodate a horse with a shorter back - so you won't see those monster flat panels like most modern Countys.

      That saddle is seriously THE MOST COMFORTABLE. Ever.

  3. Might be interested in the 5-point, I have one and with two completely different sizes its a pain to change the adjustments

  4. Just out of curiosity, what exactly do the wither gussets do?

    1. They actually help improve fit around the withers, and are especially usefully if a horse has dips behind the withers or is a wide horse with prominent withers and needs help with clearance.
      Really useful with thoroughbreds!
