Exclamation Uh oh! Mismatched stirrup leathers!

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?

If they are significantly lighter, you can get a shade closer to your saddle, and dye the leathers yourself. I found stuff at a little Native American artsy type place near where I live that was specifically made for leather. I would ask around about what is good before doing it, and definitely test it maybe on a little section on the back side of your leathers to make sure it actually matches or is extremely close before doing the whole leather. Good luck.
