The only saddle that fits me and my horse is a butet...

Talk about a picky horse :roll:

Anyway, we found a used one for the cheapest price I've ever seen, $1,200, which we bought from a someone at the barn (they accidently got 16 when they needed a 17). The saddle is in decent condition, nothing is broken and there isn't anything majorly wrong, but does anyone have any tips to fixing it up a little (aesthetically speaking)? I'll get pictures of it tomorrow when I ride my horse.
It's kind of grungy and old looking and it has a stain on the seat (invisible when you ride in it, but it's a tad annoying).

Give the saddle a good clean and oiling often (cleaning should be after every ride or once every day). For the stain you could try using some saddle oil that will darken the leather... just make sure you don't use too much. I'm just not so sure how it will turn out though. I bought a used saddle from my barn because the previous owner had left it there for over 2 years. Lol. When I got it, there was (and still is) a large stain on the seat. As much as I have tried to oil it and polish out the stain, it won't come out. So good luck! This method amy work to remove the stain and it may not =]

Here are the pictures right after I oiled it.

Some Horseman's One Step or a glycerin saddle soap may help but most likely not. Personally I think that it adds character to a saddle and speaks of a rider who has put time and experience in the seat. I'd show it off proudly!

WOW, $1200 for a Butet?! That's a pretty sweet deal! For the stain I'd try repeated cleaning and oiling/conditioning (particularly the latter). It may never come out but at least it's on the seat!
