I don't know whats going on!!

Okay so i have a Double T Barrel Saddle and just got it this past Year. Probably April of 2012. I have takin very good care of it. It is in my tack room on the saddle rack with a saddle cover on it and when it gets mud on it i always clean it off before putting it up and i was cleaning it and seen the top is turning a greenish blue color. I dont know whats going on with it!! Do you have an idea? Thanks!!

Wow. Wtf? That's weird. It could be a chemical reaction to something. Like with what ever your cleaning it with or something to that extent.

Thats what i thought. And Then i thought about it but that part of the saddle i dont use this leather cleaner on because it will darken it i usally just wipe it off with a rag. So i am ver puzzled on what is going on with it. I just dont want it to ruin my saddle.

could it be mold? Sometimes in wet environments leather molds easily. Can you brush it off with a stiff brush or a rag?

.

Most Double T are made from Water Buffalo Leather and the leather is often cured with questionable methods, not sure exactly how to cure your problem with that type of leather.

If it is mold, you may try a leather cleaner that contains a fungicide, test a spot that is not visible to see how it reacts or has a potential to change color shade of leather.

Yeap your problem is simply owning a junk saddle. Lucky you even got a year out of it. Simplest soultion really, buy a new saddle. You will be doing your horse a favor.

Sounds like copper salts. Are you on a well? If so the copper in the water can cause that.

I dont think its mold because i have seen that on a friend of mines saddle before and it doesnt look like that. It almost looks like when the silver tarnishes. I am Going to call the tack store i got it from and see what he says. But its not a junk saddle it is the best saddle my horse has ever ran in. Fits both of us perfect! My cousin also has one and does her and her horse great also!
