I recently got a black english saddle from my friend and she got it from a person who we don't know that made a hand made saddle cushion and glued it to the seat...... I want to take it off but then dried glue will be left on the leather... I'm scaried to take the cushion off because im scaried that I wont be able to get the glue off and then the saddle is messed up... Help!!!
Did you get the saddle for free? If so I would take it to a tack shop or tack repair shop. They could probably tell you if it could be safely taken off or get a professional tack repair person to take it off.
I agree. Get a professional to take a look - f it's been fixed with rubber solution glue you might be lucky.
BUT I doubt any repairer will want to risk removing the cushion in case they rip the seat, which is quite likely if it's been fixed with a spirit glue. Replacing the seat of an older used saddle generally costs far more than the saddle's worth, unfortunately :(
