A Guide to Finding the Right Devoucoux Dressage Saddle on eBay

Dressage is an expensive hobby, but you can often cut costs and still get quality tack when buying used. One way to do this is by purchasing your saddle on eBay. By carefully reading descriptions and scrutinizing photos, you can still find the right saddle for you and your horse.

Finding the right fit

One of the challenges of buying online is that you can't often test the saddle's fit on your horse. That being said, Devoucoux dressage saddles have a decent amount of adjustability. When you are buying, look at photos to see where the manufacturer has stamped the size. This will make sure you are buying based on the true size and not merely a guess.

If the listing does not provide exact measurements, make sure you consult manufacturer information. For example, if you are looking at Devoucoux Mendia dressage saddles, check the manufacturer's detailed information to make sure the saddle will fit your horse (and you) before you buy.

Are the preowned saddles on eBay in good condition?

One of the other vital steps to take before making a purchase of Devoucoux Chiberta dressage saddles is to check the saddle condition. Many listings will be careful to show close-up photos of any potential issues. Here's what to look for as you shop:

  • Look closely for evidence of a twisted tree. In photos, look to make sure the saddle looks symmetrical. Sometimes, after several falls, the tree will become twisted. This may be able to be fixed, but it tends to be an extensive fix.
  • Check leather condition. Excessive cracking often means the leather hasn't been well cared for. While it may present as a cosmetic issue, it also may shorten the life of the saddle.
  • Look for issues with stitching. In many older saddles, stitching begins to come undone. Look for areas where this has happened--some minor issues may be easily fixed.
Other considerations

Before committing to any of the Devoucoux Mendia dressage saddles you come across on eBay, there are a few other things to look for:

  • Does the saddle come with a trial period? Sometimes you will be able to return the saddle if you try it and it is not a good fit.
  • Does it come with any extras? Some come with stirrups and leathers. If these are good quality, you may be able to save money by buying them with the saddle.
