Saddle Lining -- help!

I have a saddle that has big patches of the bottom lining missing. (the sheepskin stuff on the bottom). Will that affect the horses comfort or rub spots if I have a thick blanket?

Please let me know as soon as possible!

I don't think it will affect your horses comfort hardly at all, but it might take a toll on your saddle...

Is that possibly a mule you got there?

Mikarel is right. The lining on our saddles today really don't do a lot for our horses due to the advent of really good pads but it does save the saddle from excessive wear.

If your saddle is that worn, I would not only have it sent off to be relined but to have it tightened and really checked over for other potential problems.
