Help in Saddle restoration...
I recently got a black english saddle from my friend and she got it from a person who we dont know that made a hand made saddle cushion and glued it to the seat...... I want to take it off but then dried glue will be left on the leather... I'm scaried to take the cushion off because im scaried that I wont be able to get the glue off and then the saddle is messed up... Help!!! :?
Did you get the saddle for free? If so I would take it to a tack shop or tack repair shop. They could probably tell you if it could be safely taken off or get a professional tack repair person to take it off.
I agree. Get a professional to take a look - f it's been fixed with rubber solution glue you might be lucky.
BUT I doubt any repairer will want to risk removing the cushion in case they rip the seat, which is quite likely if it's been fixed with a spirit glue. Replacing the seat of an older used saddle generally costs far more than the saddle's worth, unfortunately :(
Oh...... Well my mom says that maybe gu-gone is safe for leather and I can use that....
Goo Gone will ruin leather, so it's not safe to use on that saddle.
I'd like to see a picture of it. If it's a garbage saddle, you won't want to use it on a horse anyway.
It's a nice saddle... But I won't be at the ban until Monday do I will post some pics mondy night....

Try your hair dryer and see if it will soften the glue enough that you can begin easing the pad off.
i haven;t had enough time to look for a brand name... I will put pics and stuff monday
The name should be on a small metal plate at the front of the saddle under the flap on the near side. If it's missing there should be two small nail holes.
