PREVIOUSLY OWNED SADDLES
We harvest previously owned saddles from many sources -- consignment, trade-ins, estates. Every saddle has a purpose and needs an owner. Contrary to popular belief, saddles do not become more valuable sitting unused in the barn! So if they are no longer needed, for whatever reason, it is a good idea to send them to us on consignment, or trade them in for something that will be more suitable. We have many options, and can always offer sound advice. We restore them, put on a reasonable price, and take 30 percent commission. On the high end saddles, we restore the 10-year tree guarantee.
Saddles should be sent to:
Colin Dangaard 184 N. Kanan Dume Road, Malibu, CA, 90265.
We always have many previously owned saddles in stock, they rotate regularly. To discuss which might be right for you, call Colin and give him your weight and height and a description of the horse. He can then tell you about a range of saddles available that might work. Once a saddle has been selected, then Colin will ask for more precise measurements and a photo of the horse.
If you want to talk about it, call Colin on his cell 818 309-8125 or the main office 818 889-6988 or email email@example.com
