Could I get some opinions on what price/range to sell this saddle at? It's a Crates barrel saddle. It's in excellent condition, 15 inch seat, and semi-QH bars. I'm not entirely sure of the age, but I would place it between 5-7 years.

I would expect from $550 to $650. Might want to look and see what similar saddles go for on ebay

Thanks Flooper!! You asked for it!

Cody is a (almost) 6 yr old Appendix QH. I bought him as a 2 year old. I used to take care of horses for a racing QH trainer in the summers while they were out at the tracks. Every day was always a surprise to see what new horse had been dropped off or picked up. Horses injured, taking a rest, or just in between races. One day the trainer gave me a call to tell me the "black gelding" would be coming in the next day and if I knew anyone that wanted to buy him to let them know. Cody was a slow grower and his owners didn't want to wait (as per the trainers recommendations) for him to finish growing into his body before racing him. They dumped him on the trainer to "get rid of". All the trainer wanted was what was left of the training fees - $600. So I ended up trading two months worth of labor for him.

I've had him ever since. This year has been really good for us. He's finally out of the teenage stage-both mentally and physically- and his training is really clicking along. I just graduated him to his first shanked bit, and am hoping to start some barrel racing training this Spring. (more of a hobby than a serious thing). We also enjoy trail riding. He's really a great horse. Very personable, and seems to be the barn favorite. You do have to make sure things are locked up around him though, or he will figure out how to open it! Scared the farrier last month when he figured out how to open the paddock to barn door and walked into the barn aisle while he was shoeing.

Welcome to the forum from Canada. We have a real nice Crates western pleasure show saddle in very good condition that we would like to get about $1,000 Canadian ( 800 US) that we bought new about 10 years ago specifcally to fit a wider withered Quarter horse that has passed on. Very nice comfortable saddle.
Nice saddle and even nicer horse. Hook will be six tis spring and is really coming into himself both mentally and phyically. Hope to do more barrels this year.
