Hey I've been looking for a saddle for my mare without breaking the bank. Since I have no issues with cleaning and can even do a bit of leather working when I was handed this saddle and told I could have it cheap if I wanted to give it a try. I got some good leather conditioner and it seems to be doing pretty well, except when manipulating the front of the skirt I could feel a distinct hard bump through the shearling right where it would rest against the shoulder. (You can see in the photo where I made an indent with my finger tip) When peeking into the layers, I can see a bit of separation and what looks like a nail (If you can't see what I'm talking about on the pic, I'll circle it). Is this saddle worth even trying to salvage? Should I try tapping it back in/yanking it out?
My husband and I just bought an old home in southern nh. In the barn we found an old western saddle. I can only find a stamped number on it. It is 108. I have no use for this saddle and have no idea if it is worth anything. Thank you for any help you can provide me with will be truly appreciated.
