Suede Rain Damage

Is there anything you can do about this? I don't think so, but thought I would ask. My saddle got rained on at our county fair as I was running w/ my horse from the arena to the barn as it POURED rain :roll: Oh, and the seat is dark green, it looks grey...
I am also hoping to sell this saddle and want to know how much would it effect my asking price w/ the damage?

Sorry for the giant pic

There used to be suede dyes that are in a spray can. I haven't seen the spray suede dyes lately, but that would be ideal to touch up that seat. See if a shoe repair shop can redye it ir get you the spray dye. Mask off the rest of the saddle so it doesn't get overspray or make sure the shop does.

I would just spray the whole thing with water unless you really don't like the color.. that would be alot easier.

Personally, I would use a brass brush on it and leave it alone. You may end up putting more money then it's worth to fix a problem that may not even affect the price and/or make it worse. Dying only works properly when the item you are dying is a uniform color to begin with, even if you are going much darker.

It wouldn't bother me to see that as long as the saddle was otherwise in good shape. With use, it's going to get smooth and marked up anyway.

Try to brush it out with a suede brush (The rubber 'crinkly' ones). That might help
