I took it to a saddler for a safety check and it's sound. He said it's in great condition for a, he suspects, 30+ year old saddle, although cosmetically it was kind of beat. Sooo, this afternoon I sat out on my front porch and refurbished it, fluffed the suede, polished the bright work and conditioned the leather. I think it turned out pretty good! Looking forward to going riding tonight.
