Fixing a fender on a western saddle
A couple years ago, my mom and I went trail riding off the property. We saddled the horses before leaving (we weren't going far) and to keep the stirrups from knocking against the horses (the divider in our two horse trailer wasn't there) we hooked the stirrups on the horn.
All that being said, the leather on the stirrup of my saddle cracked and tore a little. I stopped using that saddle, and stole my mom's, and helped her pay for a new one (I liked hers better anyway because it had a lot more tooling). But that saddle doesn't quite fit my horse right, and I want to go back to the other one.
Any ideas how to fix it, or what I can do? It's not a huge tear, but it's enough to make me worry that it'll tear more, especially since it's on the left side. I don't think I can afford to replace a fender, if you can even do that.
