Question Saddle damage

I have a saddle that was given to me it has damage on the back from mice chewing on it...I wanted to know if it still usable as I don't want to cause discomfort to a horse using it....I was kind of thinking using it for the kids. I attached a picture...first time posting a pic on a forum...

The part missing isn't crucial to weight bearing so I would say it's fine for what you want to use it for. Maybe use duct tape over the bad area, cover that with electrical tape & no one will notice.
Oh, & buy some mouse traps

It was actually at a families house its prob sat in their garage for about ten years I really scrubbed it down looks a lot better than it did when I got it with 2 other saddles that are in really good condition. I think I might spray paint it black lol so its not so noticeable..

Firstly, welcome to the forum .

I second what Natisha said. The damage that I see is mostly cosmetic and, while it's a bit ugly, it won't cause the saddle to function any differently on a horse. I think I would advise using a sharpie or a magic marker on it rather than spray paint though. Easier to control and less apt to flake off as it ages.
