Saddle repair

  I broke my latigo keepers on my saddle when I was living in Montana. My mare spooked when my boss jumped his 4wheeler out of the barrow ditch. My saddle slipped under her, she stomped it a bit broke the keepers and pulled loose "aka busted the crap out of" my blevins buckles. I had a saddle maker up there fix the stirrup leathers. I fixed the keepers myself. It was a temporary job that never got finished till now. I made a new keeper.
 Back on the saddle and ready to go to work.
My rope was wearing a hole in the swell on the saddle so I put a patch on it.
I hope this is the last saddle repair I have to do for a while. Until next time take care.

Looks like you got it figured out! :-)

I gotta make some keepers like that for my cutting saddle, just cause I like the d-rings up that high to attach my breast collar onto.
