They make leather dye. Maybe you can find a saddle shop to dye it for you? Or if you're brave, you could always try to dye it yourself if you really like how it rides and just hate the color.

It may not be a "name brand", but if you like it and it fits your horse, who cares?

I tried my coach's saddle on ransom yesterday.

It's a 15.5" Lamicell Circle P Barrel Saddle. Anyone have experience with Circle P? She is asking $800.

I'm guessing it fit?! Fingers crossed..

May want to PM Drumrunner or another one of the barrel girls :) or ask on that other thread you started about Chicks Saddlery

Have the seat replaced - ask around for a saddle repair shop or dye it as someone suggested. A good fitting saddle is hard to come by - LOL think of it this way, your butt is covering the seat so get the other tack and ignore it is pink! Personally, I like colored stuff - Biscuit wears a purple biothane halter/bridle and I LOVE it!!!

It looks like it doesn't fit your horse anyway. In the bottom pic the back of the bars aren't on his back - going by the pic.

^ Saddlebag, that was my first thought as well. The bars are completely off the horse's back, putting pressure over the withers.
