I didn't think to take any pics of the repair before I put the seat back together
The repair is under the leather that covers the back of the cantle and seat. I could get pics of the saddle fully put together with its disclaimer but I wouldnt be able to get them until next weekend that's when I work next.
Flytobecat that's what I think this saddle would still be good for. That way if things go south and the saddle gets torn up its not as big of a deal. If you didnt know better you couldnt detect the damage to the tree I have it that snug! If I decide something is worth fixing it gets fixed to the max whenever possible! I just finished restiching a Big Horn Aussie/Western crossover saddle where the factory frogot/missed stiching the middle of the seat leather to the cheyenne roll. That was a pain to get done but the saddle looks better now. Posted via Mobile Device
