saddle rubbing (not on the horse :P )

I was adjusting the stirrups in my stock saddle yesterday and I noticed this gash through the lining stuff (i don't know what to call it). From what I can see it's rubbing on the girth buckles. The thing is, It's only rubbing on this side. Is there any way I can prevent it from rubbing or even fix the rubbed mark?

The gash itself is hard to see. But look close and you'll see it.

And the saddle is a bit dirty, went riding yesterday.

Are the fenders leather or synthetic? What I have done on leather saddles, is rub in some paste saddle soap, fairly thick, wherever I find rub marks. It seems to help it slide instead of rub. I don't know if that would work on synthetics, but the worst it could do I would think it make a little bit of a mess.

I'm not actually sure. I always thought it was leather :P
