My opinion is that even if it were to be 'fixed' by next saturday, riding again so soon after it has healed will only reinjure the skin and cause another saddle/girth sore which could be worse and bigger than before. I would call the owner and inform her of the injury and suggest not having the horse in the next show. That would be the best thing for the horse in my opinion. It's like getting a blister on your foot from a pair of heels and then a week or two later wearing the heals again, your prone to being sore in that spot and possibly getting another bilster or tearing the skin. But that's my 2 cent. Sorry I can't help with what to apply on the wound to speed up the process.

I've seen a product called Vetricyn advertised on RFD-TV. I think you have to order it over the internet, but I'm not sure. It is supposed to speed healing by increasing the oxygen levels at the sight of the wound. However, no product is going to heal a saddle sore in the short period of time you have. Like trvlingheart said - you have to do what is best for the horse... call the owner...
