Horse Tack For Sale!
Well, I FINALLY have found my dream saddle. Actually, I have finally found a way to afford buying my dream saddle. And what does that mean you might be wondering. Well, that means I am selling a bunch of my horse tack. So, Horse tack for sale!!!!
Let me go back a couple of years…..
A few years ago, when we were allowed to go to spectate at horse shows, I stopped at the Voltaire booth. And I had the opportunity to sit in a Palm Beach saddle. It was amazing. When I sat in that saddle, I felt like I was ‘one’ with the tack. And it was at that moment that I started concocting a way that I would be able to afford buying one.
But committing to purchasing a Voltaire saddle, well that was a hard sell for me.
With a price tag of around $5000, I didn’t see a way of how I could make that happen, let alone justifying the purchase. But that doesn’t mean I had given up on my dream of having a Voltaire saddle of my own.
Finding Ways to Make Money for Tack
So over the past several years, I have been searching for an affordable second hand option to make it happen. And I have finally found the perfect saddle. (More on that later) And even though it is about half the cost of a new Voltaire, its still expensive at $2550.00. So that means I need to come up with $2550 plus tax for my saddle. Which means eBay, here I come.
I walked into my tack room with a fresh look, looking at stuff to sell. And if you have seen my tack room, you know I have a lot of stuff. This was made evident to me when my friend and her husband came over one day. And she was thinking #goals and her husband said my tack room looked like a tack store. That made me realize how much tack that I have, and a lot of it I don’t even use. My brain put 2 and 2 together, and I decided this is how I was going to earn enough money to buy my dream saddle.
Horse Tack For Sale
So I got busy going through everything, and finding what I could bear to part with, and there was a lot.
I go through tack buying spurts. I usually buy a lot, and then sell a lot. But lately, I haven’t been selling. I have just been collecting! And the time has come to purge and sell. Because I have a target goal in mind. I need to make enough for the new saddle purchase, plus tax, as well as enough for the seller fees.
Now for me, this is therapy. Not only am I getting rid of the excess, and cleaning out my tack room, but I will be able to make a large purchase using money from stuff I already have. To me, it’s recycling money, so I’m not really spending money, sort of. Does that make sense? #LisaMath
