I am not 100% sure about this but somewhere in the back of my mind there is a memory of a warning about the buyer arranging and paying postage themselves. Insurance perhaps? Maybe if the item is lost the seller has no claim because they did not pay the postage and so any insurance would be paid...
I have sold saddles on ebay, Preloved and Facebook.
I always pack the saddle before advertising so I know exactly how much postage to charge. The weight and the dimensions are critical to keeping weight and therefore costs down. I used inflated balloons as padding once! I usually send by Hermes...
All my numnahs are black. I don’t own any boots or bandages. Ears are shocking pink for hi viz. There is no fancy stitching on my tack. Neither my piebald mare nor I have ever worn eyeshadow or lipstick.
Counting up I think I am about 8 times doomed to failure!
Has anyone by chance calculated if there is a financial benefit in the purchase of matchy matchy compared to lessons?
Or is the improvement in my riding gained going to be so vast that no amount of lessons would compare?
I had rugs etc with matching colours so the kids didn’t put the wrong rug on their ponies.
I do like leather and numnahs to be the same, i.e. all black or all brown
That is about as matchy as I get.
Most of my stuff is bought for fit not colour. ( apart from hi-viz)
Glad they were rescued but hoping they are not too shocked and exhausted by the experience.
A warning to us all not to ride on beaches etc without finding out the dangers.
