    Foxtail, if that isn't enough, find an old Big Horn synthetic and switch out the fenders. Lots of give with the synthetics. I'd be interested in seeing a pic of your work as how the saddlemaker showed you. There are a few methods that help.

    Just had a couple of inquiries to even up the dye on a western saddle. Not sure I want to take this on as the owner's expectations seem unreasonably high. A new saddle cannot be created from a used one. I've touched up the dye on a lot of English saddles but this is fading on the skirts on both sides.

    Thankyou. If anyone has a repair they'd like to tackle, post it here and perhaps my response will help others.

    Here is the fix my saddle fitter made for my fender. I tried it out on Tuesday and it was great! The fender wraps toward my ankle, so there was no rubbing. And it made the stirrup easier to keep.

    Foxtail, be sure to check those every time before your ride as the nuts have been known to loosen and a stirrup is dropped. The reason cowboy boots have a tall shaft is to prevent rubbing that occurs with short boots.

    Do you mean the ones on the stirrup? Yes, I have lost the nut and washer on one side already!
