Hey everyone!

So I just got a new saddle on trial, the Bevals Stamford. Anyone have any experience with this saddle? I'm not a huge fan of the color, does anyone know how much it darkens?

Its a 16'' (I'm 5'1'' and needed something with a short flap). Love everything but the color so I'm hoping oil or leather darkener would do the trick.

Thanks guys!

I have seen them oiled and they get a lot darker. If your buying it from Beval just ask them to oil it to you before they ship it out.

Did it still have its orange-y tint?

The Gladstone is alot less orange & not much more money so maybe consider that saddle instead
Beval (http://www.beval.com/content/saddlepackage.htm) has a nice price on their saddle package.

Definitely give the nice folks at Beval a call & discuss this with them :)

ETA: likely an oiled Stamford (http://www.allthebestusedsaddles.com/16-stamford-1230.aspx)
