Adding Knee support?

so I have this saddle that has been up for sale for quite some time. It's a brand new saddle that was fitted a few months ago for a horse I ended up selling shortly after getting the saddle

The saddle was quite a bit of money when I bought it and I am now selling for $1,000 less in the hopes it will sell. Excellent deal for anyone who decides to buy it :(

So I have realized that instead of selling something for that much less I am going to get it re-fitted and keep it. My main issue will be to get it sized to a larger tree which I know can be done but what I really want to get done is adding knee support under the saddle flap. Anyone know if it can be done?

I'm sure it can be done. A man I work with knows a great saddle maker that does repairs and alterations, I'll get the number for you :)

it can be done by a good saddle maker, but I have a feeling it will be very very expensive!

That would be great JDI.

Upnover, unfortunately I would be loosing about $1,000 by selling my saddle at the price I have it listed at so I would rather spend that lost money on altering it to something that works for me and my horses than lose that.

I will also contact the company tomorrow and see how much it would cost me to get it done, see if I can even do it at all.
