Click on your state and you will either be notified that you're already in the right place or a separate website will open for the correct dealer. Please start with the dealer in your region as they have the rights to that area and can also save you time and money shipping a shorter distance. We do refer customers to each other if one of us has the saddle you need. Equine Karma (green) and Badlands Equine (blue) are sharing Idaho, so chose as you prefer. And since Marlene has many ties to Colorado, she and Amanda from Moss Rock Endurance are sharing Colorado.
Saddles can be trialed for 14 days for a $110 demo fee (which covers shipping both ways except to AK and HI) plus a 50% security deposit which is refundable or applied toward purchase unless there is any unreasonable dirt, damage, or wear. I expect wear marks on the billets and rubs from leathers but not gouges from gates or bored kitties! A quick removal of sweat, dirt, and horse hair is usually sufficient, you don't need to soap or oil the saddle. The demo comes with a return shipping label, so no further expense. I generally ship via UPS ground which can take from 2-6 days depending how far you are from Oregon.
Most demo saddles may be purchased, so every saddle going out is either brand new or may have been demoed once. Before paying to demo, please contact me to make sure the model you want is in stock, although the Current Inventory page is typically up to date, then use the demo request form below to request it. After payment is received, the saddle and accessories will be shipped the next 1-2 business days in most cases.
You're welcome to request any accessories, although some items are frequently back-ordered these days so check first if you don't have your own stirrups.
In order to give you the best demo experience, I would like to know a bit more about you and your horse. Click here for a list of useful details as well as sample photos.

Click on the Demo Request product below to request your demo. You will be able to specify model, size, and accessories.
Please verify via email or phone that the saddle you want to demo is available or check current inventory. See accessory options here. If an accessory says limited availability, you may want to check first if available if it's important. Some non-Ghost items are backordered and I can direct you to other suppliers if needed.

Please understand that shipping is roughly double to AK and HI so you are responsible for your own return shipping if you live in those states. If you're not sure if you're at the correct Ghost dealer in the US, please check out the map here since the greater of $25 or actual costs will be held for your demo fee if you are outside my area.
If it's not safe for a package to be left at your address, choose the "Signature required" option under Delivery. The security deposit will either be refunded upon return or applied toward purchase/order. If you purchase the demo saddle, a portion of the demo fee will also be applied toward purchase.
