As you can see, the extra gets wrapped around as normal. I twist the back towards the front of the saddle.

I didn't read the whole thread but one thing I've done in the past that works very well without soaking the leather (you should have a decent in good condition, oiled saddle to do this, not sure how it would work with cheap leather).

1) put saddle on a saddle rack
2) get a 2x4, it needs to be at least 1 ft longer than the width of your saddle
3) get stirrup one, twist the direction you want them to stay, put the 2x4 in
4) go to the other side, do the same thing with the end of your wood

And your done! It needs to sit for a while but works great

Will this method work on a new saddle with light roughout fenders without effecting the color and texture of the fenders?

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
