If it's on the edge of the seat under your thigh, one option to think about which doesn't involve replacing the whole seat is to have a saddler pop stitch the seat to the skirts through the seam. You can get quite good results provided the seat leather's not too thin (I do this quite a bit for riding school saddles where a seat replacement is uneconomic).
You end up with a row of spaced stitches visible on the seat, but it's less unsightly than a hole and less likely to rub your leg than patching it or leaving it open. Or using duct tape ;)
