So I have a saddle that I recently snapped the tree on (cheapass-Indian made AP), and I need to get rid of it. I took of the leathers and the stirrups.
Do I clip off the billets and take the saddle to the dump? Or is there a place that can reuse the saddle parts, that I can send it to?

I'd see if a local Pony Club or 4-H group would like it for learning purposes, or offer it for free on ebay or a facebook group for learning purposes

cut the billets off at the webbing (aka the web strap the billets are sewn to, just slice that off as high as you can). Then in order to put new billets on and use it you'd have to take the seat off and reweb the tree and really who's going to do that, whereas some idiot would probably try and use the broken treed saddle if it still had billets.

the night hath been to me a more familiar face than that of man; and in her starry shade of dim and solitary loveliness i learned the language of another world.
I'm happy in summertime beneath the dark blue sky, nae thinkin in the mornin at nicht where i'm gang to lie
bothies or byres or barns, or oot amangst the hay,and if the weather does permit, I'm happy a' the day.
