Tex Tan Hereford restoration pics

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Haven't been on here for a long time, I like the new format! I've been busy restoring a 70s era Hereford saddle, pretty happy with the results. I sent the skirts out to Kevin Parrish (The Saddle Guy) for refleecing due to my arthritis. Should have them back this week and will be able to put everything back together.

The leather was in good shape to start with, just needed a little oil to even out the color and a new finish coat. I polished and sealed the brass dee rings to their original state. How's it look so far?







I'll post more photos after I get the skirt, strings and conchos back on.

What products did you use to change the color? The saddle looks great altho personally I prefer the brownish tones of the first pic and would have tried to maintain that color. I'm a fan of the older TT's as they were very well made.
