Saddle horn broken- can it be fixed?
All input is appreciated. I recently sold a lovely older Crates barrel saddle. Since I have not shipped a western saddle before I had UPS pack it professionally and shipped out to Utah. Well, they put no protection around the saddle horn. From the looks of the box and pics sent by the buyer, it had a rough trip. The top of the saddle horn is snapped. The leather wrap appears to be holding it on now. Thankfully I did insure it. I am simply sick as it is a nice piece of tack.
Anyway, can this be fixed to be safely used? What is the cost? Who does it? Thanks!
