Buying a Second Hand Saddle
Freedom Saddlery does not stock second hand saddles, but very occasionally part exchanges saddles that have been purchased through Freedom Saddlery initially. These saddles are open for sale and advertised via social media.
The internet has transformed the second hand saddle market, with many saddles bought and sold in this way. Similarly some excellent second hand saddle businesses have set up, allowing saddles to be taken away to try. Also saddles are sold over the internet through websites like BD's own classified section.
Freedom Saddlery will offer the full saddle fit consultation to assess your saddle selection short-list and identify the best fit. When buying a second hand saddle it should be checked over very carefully - with particular note taken of the state of the saddle tree and stitching to ensure it is safe to ride in. This is all included as part of the saddle fit consultation.
UNLIKE BUYING NEW, SECOND HAND SADDLES CARRY NO GUARANTEE.
Please note - buying a saddle in this way may require a number of appointments and can be a time consuming process.
If the saddle you eventually decide upon requires reflocking, we can provide that service via the Master Saddler service.
