    SORRY a saddle how much...

    I've sold saddles on ebay before and have always started at 99p bit risky I know but have always got a fair amount for them. My advice would be have a look what similar saddles are selling for on there, should give you a rough idea of what to start at and what to put as a reserve amount.

    I feel so loved

    My foal is the same and has been since she was born. Probably due to the fact I was the first human she saw when she was born as I was there at birth. But I agree its so nice to be bonded with your horse and them show their appreciation for you!
