I'm having trouble finding a black saddle in the style I like and in my price range (that's well made, too). I've seen a gazillion lighter saddles that I would LOVE if only they were black. The saddle has to be black because it's part of my uniform.
Does anyone know about how much it cost to dye a saddle black? Does it have to have a certain finish (like it can't be polished or has to have a matte finish)? Are there some colors that are easier to dye black than others? I like tooling...is tooling a problem (should I look for saddles with less...I'm not sure how hard it is to get inside it. Lol)?
