    If it's a quality saddle and not a generic Indian one I'd take it to a saddler. Probably wouldn't cost too much to have it repacked and repaired. A lot less than a new saddle anyway.
    Somewhere like Horseland would be able to point you in the right direction.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Canterlining a saddle is a real skill and should be done professionally.
