I live smack dab in the middle of Orlando, Florida.
I just bought a saddle from a friend and it had been sitting in her garage for a year collecting dust.
It didn't dawn on me to check everything before I left, and when I got home I noticed the D-ring for the girth is gone! The leather had dry-rotted away!
From what i'm told it's a synthetic barrel saddle.
I paid $175 for it and the only repair shop I could get in contact with said it would cost $200 to fix it?!
My friend said she'd pay for the repair, but it would be like her paying me to tak her saddle!
Does anyone know if I could repair this myself?
I'll attach pictures!
That's the good ring^
These two are the broken one ^
And that's the saddle its self! If anyone can offer me some help, I will gladly appreciate it!
