Used Tucker Saddles On eBay: Good Things To Know Before You Buy
Below are a few good things to know before buying a used Tucker saddle on eBay or anywhere else.
- First off, is it actually a Tucker saddle? Occasionally a seller who isn’t familiar with horse tack will list a saddle on eBay and describe it incorrectly. Look at the photos and read the description to make sure you agree it’s a Tucker.
- What type of Tucker saddle is it? Tucker makes trail saddles, endurance saddles, mules saddles, and more. If the seller isn’t informed enough to tell you what type of saddle it is, they should show you enough clear photos that you can determine this for yourself.
- Does the seller tell you such things as the kind of saddle tree, the seat size, how much the saddle weighs, and the style of rigging? If not, be sure to ask the seller any questions you may have before you bid or buy.
- What does, and does not, come with the saddle? Don’t assume you’ll get cinches, a breast collar, saddle pad, or anything else. (This includes stirrups, by the way. While a lot of used saddles sell with stirrups some sellers like to keep a favorite pair of stirrups they’re fond of for their next saddle.) If the seller doesn’t mention what is included, and you’re not sure, be sure to ask them before you bid or buy
- Is shipping included in the price or is it extra? If it’s extra, how much will it be?
- Does the seller accept returns? On used saddles it’s common for returns to not be accepted, but you never know so be sure to check. If the seller will accept the return of the saddle, will there be a re-stocking fee? (Many eBay sellers that are businesses might require a restocking fee, but this isn’t as common with sellers that are individuals.)
- If returns are accepted, who pays for the return shipping, you or the seller? (Hint: It’s probably you.)
Below are used Tucker saddles on HorseSaddleShop.com. These saddles come from owners/sellers all across the country who use the professional services of HorseSaddleShop to sell their saddle for them. When HorseSaddleShop sells a used saddle for an owner, their process includes:
- They have the owner/seller ship their saddle to HorseSaddleShop (which is located in Bremen, Indiana).
- They clean and oil the saddle, and inspect it for soundness. If necessary, they make repairs or replacements.
- They the write the description of the saddle to ensure it is described accurately.
- When the saddle is sold, HorseSaddleShop handles the transaction and ships it to its new owner.
- The used saddle is offered with free shipping and a two week return policy.
Some saddles by HorseSaddleShop are listed twice. Why? It’s because HorseSaddleShop is one business (located in Bremen, Indiana), with two websites (HorseSaddleShop.com and eSaddles.com), and they often show the same saddle on both websites. In case one website would have a better deal on a saddle, saddles from both websites are shown.
Tucker Saddle Seat Size Chart
If you’ve never owned or sat in a Tucker saddle before you will probably want to take a look at their seat sizing chart to help determine what size seat you will need. That’s because most riders need a seat that is slightly larger in a Tucker saddle compared to most other Western saddles due to the padding in Tucker seats. In general, most people riding in a Tucker Western saddle (with a saddle horn) will need a seat 1/2″ larger than typical for other Western saddles.
