Fenders on a western saddle

Hello!

My question is : Can I change the fenders on my Circle Y saddle ???
And how should I do ? It seems to be complicate ...

Thanks

Eve

What are you wanting to change and why?

Yes, yes, what is your reason for wanting to change them? Circle Y's are good saddles and I would think the fenders would not need to be replaced.

Just because my horse had an accident, the saddle is out of order and I have an oder one, the same one , but the fenders are not the same quality as the first.
I will just put the fenders from the first saddle on the second one.
And my question was just to know if its possible or not ...

Sorry, I know that my english is not perfect ...

I am sorry! I guess my curiosity got the best of me. I am sure it is possible but not sure if you can do it yourself easily or need to have it done.
Guess I need to mind my business, OOPS!

The Fenders are connected to the adjustment straps, you pull them put and then thread the new ones back in.

It is not the easiest thing to do, but not the hardest either, just takes patience

There are slots in the bar of the Tree, the leather straps just wrap around them, you can see them, that is where the patience comes in, trying to thread them back

Southern I have the niftiest trick for threading stirrup leathers. I've passed this along to various saddlemakers and could hear the head slap at it's simplicity. "why didn't I think of that". I was struggling with one that had been stored in a shed for 7 years. The sweat was running and I couldn't get them to budge, then an aha moment. I shall keep you in suspense.

The 1st time is the most difficult, but after that it takes 2 minutes the 2nd time, hard to put some things in Type


Saddlebag, tell everyone your secret

I use the plastic from two large yogurt tubs with the top rim and bottom removed. Cut each one into a strip that is wider than the leather but will fit the slot, about 4". Use these to create a sandwich using the leather as the filling. These enable the leather to slide easily even when stiff. Push the free end up into the air channel and pull it thro. If the leather doesn't want to pull out the bottom side, sandwich them to help them slide. That old saddle had leathers that felt cemented around the tree. I had them out in less than 10 min. Same putting them back altho they'd been cleaned and oiled then.
