I recently bought a semi-expensive pair of stirrup leathers for the jumping saddle I bought off someone. I ordered them off a catalog and chose a color that [I THOUGHT] matched the saddle. The saddle is a brown color, and the stirrup leathers are a significantly lighter shade of brown, almost a hazelnut color! Yikes, they don't match the saddle!
What can I do in this situation? Should I just suck it up and leave them? Will time darken them/ make them more even with the saddle? I can't afford a new pair of leathers right now, what can I do?
