    I just got a saddle made by Jimmy's- the only problem is one of the flaps (think the entire side of the underside of the saddle) is starting to come apart from the saddle. I'm not exactly sure if it could be restitched, or how it would even be reattached- but I am sure that it needs to be fixed for it to be useable/ safe.

    Is this something that is fixable? If so, how much would it cost, and would it be worth it to repair, or should the saddle just become a house decoration?

    Thanks!

    pics please. I recommend taking it to a good saddle shop that does repairs and just ask them. Most of the ones I have found will be more than willing to look at it for free and give you a quote.

    post a pic -- sounds like a simple repair if it's just stitching

    Ok, here are some pictures of the saddle. Most of them are of the one side that really needs work, but there is one picture of the other side in there too (which looks a little loose to me). Tell me what you think!
