Re: RC: Sport Saddle tips

For  Sport saddle stirrup leathers, I recycle my old dressage leathers. They
wear out at the buckle, which leaves lots of good leather for a Sport leather. I
usually buy nice leathers, so appreciate the double duty they do!

Any english leather will do. They need to be short, so when I'm recycling I end
up having to cut many inches off and punch new holes (with the drill - lazy!).
