I just bought a collegiate close contact saddle, and got a really good deal on it because of a tear in the seat. Well, it'll be a really good deal on it if I can repair it or the tear doesn't spread! My barn owner said to put some super glue on it, but I'm looking for other options :P
I've heard that the options for repairing such tears include taking it to a leather worker and patching or stitching the tear, or replacing the seat. I would imagine that replacing the seat is more than would be worth spending, but what about stitching or patching? How much do those services usually run, and how effective are they at preventing the tear from spreading?
Here are some pictures- what do you think?
This saddle is super comfy, so I'm hoping that something can be done!
