A lot of how you fix this is going to depend on what your saddle is worth, what you want to do with it and how much you're willing to pay to repair it. Personally, I wouldn't glue or stitch a random patch to my saddle unless my saddle was pretty much already on its last bit of life and was never going to see the inside of a show ring, etc.
If your saddle is in otherwise decent condition and you still plan on using it for several years, I would take it to a professional tack repair store or a leather repair store and have it assessed and repaired professionally.
