I traded my australian saddle for a black western one on craigslist. I'm happy with the trade because I never used the ozzy saddle and I can use the western saddle with what I want in my goals.
Its an older western saddle, black, and it has some silver on the skirt. The cantle is also lined with silver and there used to be a horn cap for the horn but its not there anymore. The woman said it was a roping saddle and although it DOES have weight (its about 40lbs) I doubt it is a roping saddle.
Anyways, I want to replace the horn cap on it since its missing but if I get a new shiny horn cap, it will put the rest of the silver to shame. The remaining silver is old and it doesn't shine anymore. Should I just replace all of the silver or is there a way to get that old silver to shine again?
