Can this be fixed? Synthetic saddle question

I went to ride in my western saddle the other day and noticed a part had ripped off! (I haven't rode in it for quite a while) On the off side, one of the straps that holds the billet ring had ripped off the saddle. So only one strap is holding the billet ring on. Is there any way this can be fixed? Or should I just chuck it in the trash?

I would say most synthetic saddles should be chucked in the trash. I have rarely seen one that fit a horse very well and never seen one that was well made. It could probably be fixed but I wouldn't bother. Buy a well made used saddle that will last you for years and years.

That's what I figured. I hate synthetic tack, but got that as a gift. I tried giving it away to anyone who wanted to try to fix it, but no go. It's taking up space, so I thought I'd see if it could be fixed. Plus I'm like a tack pack rat and I find it hard to throw out any type of tack. I miss my nice leather one I had. I sold when it didn't fit a horse I owned a few years ago. Now it would fit Thia! Typical right?

If you could provide a pic I can let you know if it's fixable. I've been repairing western saddles for many years.

If it was a leather saddle, I would suggest looking into getting it fixed, but since it's synthetic, the fix would likely cost more than the saddle is worth. I'm with Kevin, if you look for a nice leather saddle, it will last you forever.
