Recognizing Scams

Most scams attempts involve one or more of the following:

  • Email or text from someone that is not local to your area.
  • Vague initial inquiry, e.g. asking about "the item." Poor grammar/spelling.
  • Western Union, Money Gram, cashier check, money order, Paypal, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee."
  • Inability or refusal to meet face-to-face to complete the transaction.
  • Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
  • Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, Paypal account, etc).

Excellent condition with interchangeable gullet system

Immaculate condition Isabell Werth dressage saddle (made by Bates). Has the interchangeable gullet system.

It is black leather, with a combination of the cair system and stuffing. Very well cared for - always indoors and well maintained. No damage/wear. Comes with stirrups, leathers, and fleece cover. If you need a specific gullet plate (other than the XW currently in there), I might be able to throw that in too.

The Bates saddles can also be easily adjusted even further (by the knowledgeable user) by changing the panel/gullet width and adding stuffing. No professional fitter or stitching required - it's all designed to be accessible/adjustable by the owner.

Currently, it is set up to be very wide in the channel and gullet and offer a lot of wither clearance. It was adjusted to fit a 17.3 monster WB with big shoulders and a tall wither. Ended up working better than all the other brands I tried on him.

This is a great saddle. The versatility of it is awesome for someone with a growing/changing horse or multiple horses. I have found it to be durable enough for everyday use yet very suitable for competitions/clinics/etc. An awesome "all arounder" with great resale value. The only reason for selling is that I no longer own the horse I bought it for.
