The term “ranch saddle” refers to a type of Western saddle built for ranch use.
A ranch saddle is designed for long hours of riding, durability, and to handle the stress placed on a horse and saddle when roping. When it comes to used ranch saddles, “used” doesn’t have to mean “used up.” A used or pre-owned ranch saddle can be a great buy if it’s the type of saddle you’ve been looking for. Below are used ranch saddles for sale on eBay and HorseSaddleShop.

eBay can be an excellent place to find a good selection of used ranch saddles for sale. However, you do have to shop with a bit of caution. Confused and uninformed sellers on eBay might offer saddles for sale with inaccurate descriptions. It’s often not so much of a case of a seller being dishonest as it is a case of a seller not understanding the saddle they’re attempting to describe.
When shopping for a used ranch saddle on eBay (or anywhere else for that matter) be sure you read the description carefully and examine the photos closely to make sure the saddle is what you’re looking for. If you have questions be sure to contact the seller before you bid or buy.
In addition, when shopping for a used saddle on eBay don’t assume you get anything with the saddle except for the saddle itself. For example, the saddle may or may not come with a front cinch, back cinch, stirrups, and so on. While some used saddles are offered for sale with these items, it’s not uncommon for them to sell without them, either. Make sure you know what you are, or are not, getting with your purchase.
