Cleaning service:
The cleaner your saddle is, the faster we can sell it and a good cleaning will often increase the value of your saddle. We offer cleaning service on leather saddles that includes a full deep cleaning and conditioning. Saddle cleaning is available for a fee of $35.

Dirty items (tack) may be subject to a cleaning fee if there is excessive dirt, hair, etc. and the items need to be cleaned prior to listing the item(s) online. A cleaning fee of $5 will be charged per item


Safety checks: Please note that The Tack Trove checks every item before accepting them into our consignment program. Saddles and tack are checked for broken/twisted trees, thinning or cracked billets, loose stitching, broken or missing hardware, and other possible defects that would make the item(s) unsafe. In the event that your item has a problem that can be fixed to make it usable again, we will call you to find out if you would like to have the item repaired at the Consignor’s expense. If the item cannot be repaired it will be returned to you (at your expense if shipped). You are welcome to call or email to receive a repair quote from one of our 3rd party tack repair specialists prior to sending your item in for consignment.

Consignment fees: Pricing is determined by The Tack Trove and may progressively be reduced until sold, or reduced during sale events.
Our consignment fee is 25%

Consignment drop off is available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Please see our FAQ page for pick-up/drop-off location options.
