Rates differ depending on your service personnel. Next, look at the fit of the nut. Are there any signs of abrasion, especially where the "tube" is running along the outside of the seating? It is a high rubbing area because our sitting bone touches the nut. You can also replace the seats, but this can prove to be an expense.
Costs differ from semitrailer to semitrailer according to state. Verify the state of the underlying panel. The price varies according to the state of the panel, but should be around $50. How about the nutwood? It is not always possible to tell whether a nut boom is damaged or not without taking the nut apart literal.
If you are considering a particular type of nut, there is a small test that you can do. Place the nut longitudinally (knob first) against the upper leg. Grab the cape or the back of the nut and carefully drag it to yourself. What a healthy nut with a healthy boom will give or bend when pulled. Too much giving, however, where the chair seems to buckle, could be an indicator that there is a trouble with the boom.
Costs can be high, but sometimes they can be much lower than purchasing a new one. To sum up, you should use your common sense when purchasing a used seat. Don't necessarily care about the ages of the saddles. Older saddles can be better in form than newer ones that have not been well maintained.
Did the former holder maintain the seat regularly (cleaned and conditioned). Keep in mind that if the seat looks good and good, but looks good enough, a good conditioning agent can do some amazing things, so the seat can be a worthwhile piece of work. Focus on what you and your horses need. Do not try to adjust the seat in your head to your horseme.
Bring the seat home with you or have it sent to you so that you can put it on your own back. The Stubben also marks the seat number on the opposite bolt protector. Looking back on stumps, you can tell by the number in which year the nut was made, who actually made the nut, the cloth length, the nut height (and probably also what they had for breakfast).
The Passier and Hermes saddles also have series numbers that can give you some very interesting and useful information. If you would like more information about Charlotte's saddlery, please visit www.charlottes-saddlery.com.
