Repair saddle and have knee blocks added or sell saddle for a really discounted price (as in barely into the triple digits)?
I like this saddle, have had it for years, its not a terrible fit for me horse, and I love how it fits me. However, I hate not having knee blocks, so I was going to sell it, but when I was looking up how much the repair would be, I found a place that will add knee blocks. Total repair cost for what I want done would be around $450.
Current saddle is a Crosby, if I get a new saddle, I'm likely looking at a wintec, on my current budget.
Drive to fabric store to purchase appropriate quantity of industrial strength velcro. Drive to local cobbler/shoe repair to purchase appropriate quantity of leather glue. Drive to tack store, purchase velcro Wintec or Bates flexiblocs.
Install on saddle. It's not a glamorous solution but it's a cheap one.
