Fixing a , Henri de Rivel Advantage Stirrup Latch
My wife & I just got back into riding in the fall. We got what we thought was a good deal on an HDR Advantage saddle for her from a tack store going out of business. At least it seemed like a good deal at the time. This was for my wife since she rides English. It seemed a bit hard in places but a pad helped.
The problem is that one of the stirrup latches doesn't lock. The lock goes to a 180 degree to open and closes when pushed up to a right angle. One of the latches doesn't quite go all the way and stays loose. The stirrup has fallen off a few times which is not good. The latch is riveted in so fixing isn't easy. I wonder if its worth fixing since these get mixed reviews. It is also my wife's only saddle so I'm not sure what to do.
