Where can you get second hand treeless saddles!!

Im a student...and i do parelli so i am extremely short with the finances! Ive been looking everywhere for sites/places that sell second hand treeless saddles and they just dont seem to exist

I'm on ebay regularly, but its normally always replicers (sp) on there which i am a bit dubious about!

Does anyone know where i could get a treeless saddle (pref a treefree exmoor ) with out shedding

I joined the Yahoo Treeless goup when I first became interested in treeless saddles. People on there seem to be from all over US/UK, etc. and sometimes somebody sells a saddle.
I got our first treeless from there. A Torsion saddle that would have been new $1,400 for $700.
Do you know how to search yahoo groups?

Talking Keep looking!

Hi

Persevere with eBay - I shared your doubts about some of the ones on there but eventually a 2nd hand Dartmoor treefree came up with all its bits and I got it - so it's worth waiting as it was half the price of new and both my 13 yo 17hh IDxTB gelding and my 3 yo 14.3 Haflinger filly love it to bits - in fact we backed the Haflinger in it ......

Good luck with the search - def worth waiting for the quality
