    Warm leather will soak up more oil than cold so it helps to put them someplace warm or outside on a warm sunny day.

    I measured the Black saddle 15 inches. The other saddle is the same amount in inches.

    Tina, in my part of Ontario you would definitely get more than $75 for either of these saddles, unless they need to be repadded, which it doesn't appear that they do.

    If you are in the Northern part of the province, PM me. If I'm close enough, I could ask some people around here if they are interested. Actually, my cloth western is dying... I might even be in the market... timing is awful, but that's the way it always is.

    About how far North of Owen Sound, Ontario are you. My family owns a sawmill in Field, Ontario only 40 minutes from Sudbury. We travel there 2 times a yr. A group of us are taking a camping trip on a long weekend to trail ride.

    You might be able to get $150-200 for each saddle IF the leather has NO cracking in it anywhere (surface cracking), all of the metal hardware is in good shape (no rust), the stirrup leathers are in good shape (not stretched by the holes and no cracking), and you can get the saddles really clean.

    As is, with minor surface cracking in the leather, fleece needing replaced, and assumed other minor issues, I'd say $75-125 is about right.

    An alternative or in addition to trying to get the leather warm is to warm the oil. The warm oil takes very well to room temp leather.

    It looks like the padding on the brown one has been replaced. I don't believe they ever used felt as a liner for saddles at the time that saddle was made. It also looks like there may be some dry rot at the top of the gullet - but that may just be the picture. If it is dry rot, there is no bringing it back to life.

    I'd pay $100 for the brown saddle right now if the OP would PM me.
