Need help!! Fixing new saddle cuts and broken things!
So while I was away I had someone exercising my horse so she was lunging his on a lung line and she says he bucked and the saddle slipped under him but there where witnesses who say that when the saddle was underneath him only the back cinch was still attached soo I have no idea what she was doing(ps western saddle) anyways so she didn't tell me about it and left my saddle in horrible condition also caked in mud and dirt until I got back. For the mud I'm just planing on gently cleaning it until it comes off but my problems are all my latigos are snapped and broken, I'm not sure where to buy replacements, also the saddle has deep cuts where the leather has actually been pierced some are around 4 inches long, what should I do for those? Also it's a roping saddle and the horn wrap is still intact but completely ripped off the horn, can I just super glue it back on?
Makes me soooooooo MAD!!! My brand new saddle I bought 3 weeks ago that was almost 4 grand is ruined, oh also I'm pretty sure the tree is still all good but how do I check if the tree is broken or not, if it is I think I will have a knife in my hands.
