Exclamation Synthetic western saddle... HELP :(

So, I bought a lightweight cheap synthetic saddle to trail ride in when the weather isn't great. I have a billy cook so I don't ride in weather that isn't sunny in it LOL. My problem is the saddle fits my horse nice, it's actually pretty comfy but the stirrup leathers are way too long!

I can barely even reach them so they definitely need some new holes in them...

My question is, these have a strip of that 'fake leather' then nylon backing... can I even put holes in them? I really don't want to buy new stirrup leathers... and if I can put holes in them could someone describe how please? It would be much appreciated!

I had the same problem. I used a soldering iron to put new holes in it. It has interchangable tips so you can change the hole size. You just have to be careful because it and the neltes nylon are HOT! I have also used it for adding holes to nylon, halters, headstalls, and breast collars, and to "fix" the ends on my home made rop reins.

Just grab a drill and a drill bit, and put some holes in it. Make sure you have a ruler with you. Measure how far apart the holes on one side you make holes. Because there's a very good chance if you make holes on the other side they wont be even.

After you're done making holes with the drill. Take a lighter to the nylon back of the holes and burn them off so they wont fray.
