Hi! I have a Wintec 500 All Purpose Saddle (synthetic) and want to get some Millbrook Leathers (leather). Will it damage my saddle to mix the leather and synthetic? Also, can you use Millbrook leathers if you show AQHA/APHA? Thanks!
Can’t help you with what is legal at AQHA shows, but I can comment on using leather stirrup leathers on a synthetic saddle. The basic issue is that leather stirrups need to be treated to prevent the leather from drying out and cracking, and whatever product you use could and probably will be transferred to the saddle. Leather stirrups on a leather saddle are not a problem, but the products that will keep your leather stirrups supple can damage the material of synthetic saddles.
