this might sound a little stupid-saddle probs

Hi, I am sort of new and I bought a new saddle a month ago:

As put above:
My Aunty told me that when you are using you new saddle it will squeak
But she said sometimes they sqeak because they are new and other times because the new leather is ripping in one place
My saddle squeaks loudly and sometimes when I am in a canter going around a bend the saddle squeaks loudly and something soudns like a rip but when I check the saddle it is fine.
Is this normal saddle squeaking or is it ripping internally?

Picture: This particular saddle may look old but it is bran new and I am using old stirupp irons on the saddle?
What do you guys think?

If it's new then it squeaks because it's clean. Once it gets good and dirty that'll stop. But as soon as you clean it again it'll start squeaking. At least that's been my experience.

I turn mine upside down and put plain old baby powder on it. I sprinkle it up where the sturrup leathers go under the seat and then kinda tap the saddle on a carpet to get it up in there good. It takes a couple of applications sometimes but it always takes care of squeeks for me.

Edit: I ride a western saddle so may be different. There are a lot more places for squeeks to hide on a western saddle

Green Broke
They also squeak when they're new and the leather is dry. Have you oiled it yet? Every new saddle needs as good oiling (clean it first because most of them will have a protective wax coating). As it breaks in it should squeak less and less.

The saddle looks like a Wintec 500... I would reckonmend to wash it, because its not leather, with soap a water... and get prepared for some more riding... that's the only way to totally tame the squeak hehe. They are awesome saddles btw.... awesome seat!!
