    Well done! Your tenacity really paid off. I was surprised to read such a positive outcome, and encouraged to see how Ebay made it right.
    Hindsight bad, foresight good.

    ^^This^^

    Personally, from past experience of positive resolutions, I had faith in Ebay/PayPal. You just have to stick to your guns, stay sane and reasonable, and let it play out.

    UPS has always done right by me, but we currently have a claim that is not being handled satisfactorily, and my husband has a list of dates and times UPS Customer Service has "disconnected" him Woe unto them...

    USPS: now their claim systems SUCKS. Last time I dealt with them, this is how it works...

    Say you have purchased a gumball machine for $150. The glass in the globe gets broken. The machine as a whole is worth $150, but the globe itself is only worth $50, making the unbreakable parts worth $100 on their own. They take the entire box and contents, later find in your favor for the $50, keep the $100 machine which goes to a large clearing house to be auctioned off at a later date with their other insured but now devalued items.

    No Shit. We don't use them anymore.
    The more perfect our happiness,
    the more nagging and wretched

    New Update! Sold for 2,000 on horseclicks yesterday! YAY! I have decided to keep $600(Samson is getting a new winter wardrobe). And then the 1300 is going to a nearby horse rescue. They are having a hard time recusing horses this year because of feed prices. I think $1400 will help out a lot!

    very generous indeed! Truly I think you're a better person than I am, because I'm not sure I wouldn't have just kept the money as a nice unexpected present...

    What an awesome ending to all of the nonsense you had to go through! That definitely brings a smile to my face

    Glad you won, OP. Too bad the buyer got away with it, though. She's probably done it before, and I bet she will do it again since she gets away with it.

    Lucky for the horse rescue and your newly outfitted horse the saddle was not as worthless as you had claimed.

    It isn't just some random Internet saddle fitter, it's people with County experience.

    I am just saying that if the OP has the saddle back in her possession, and if she could get $2600 for it if she re-listed it or consigned it, then maybe it's not fair to keep the buyer's money.

    Some of you here are saying she should not take it back. But she already did.

    OP, this all sounds like a really bad experience, but honestly, you think that saddle is now worthless?
    Huh...funny how I've had at least six other saddles reflocked by three completely unconnected fitters and NONE of them have had slits cut into them. One Stubben, one Barnsby, four Albions. Is this some sort of a "County thing" no one else will understand?

    I have seen County and non-county fitters cut slits to flock through. NOT my preferred practice but it's widely done.

    It was still a good read and really solidifies why I refuse to use paypal.

    I know this is an old thread, but I have a saddle on eBay right now and worry about this stuff. What I really worry about is someone buying it, saying it is damaged and was not represented properly, intentionally damaging it, and then filing a dispute. At that point I'm going to end up out the money and with a broken saddle.

    If you are really worried about it, take the saddle to a tack store and have it inspected and documented. Otherwise, take lots of photos!

    Hear hear! But I just fought tooth and nail over a saddle sale, and despite two documents (from the manufacturer, and a saddle fitter) describing how the "Defect" was actually the place you add flocking -- she gets a full refund after keeping my saddle over a month, and I get a saddle that may or may not be in its original condition... I am beyond angry.

    I know this is an old thread but a current, relevant theme. I am a buyer (364 and counting) but have never sold. I bought 3 saddles, bridles, boots, show coats ect and have had issues in 1% of my buys. The reason I buy a lot on ebay is the buyer protection. I am out the money that day and rely on a scrupulous seller. I word about no returns. To me, as long as it is in the 30 day window and it is because the item is misrepresented, ebay will refund my money. My only 2 claims were from scammer sellers.
