Lets avoid disambiguation:

"A saddler is a person who makes, repairs, and sells saddles and other equipment for riding horses." — Collins Cobuild Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary. New Digital Edition 2008 © HarperCollins Publishers.

"A saddler is someone who makes, repairs, or deals in saddlery" — Oxford Dictionary of English, 3rd Edition © Oxford University Press 2010.

There is already matching tag craft=upholsterer for "accessories for cars and boats are produced or repaired". Besides, given photo is an upholsterer for sure. --Va-deam (talk) 20:09, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

But does a upholsterer also do horse saddles etc. ? --AndiG88 (talk) 00:04, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
"Upholsterer is a person who upholsters furniture, especially professionally."

"An upholsterer is someone whose job is to make and fit the soft covering on chairs and seats." — Collins Cobuild Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary. New Digital Edition 2008 © HarperCollins Publishers.

If you do a Google search, you'll certainly find an upholsterer for car interior. These craftsmen offer seat repairs or even new customised design of passenger compartment trim.
So we should clear up an explanation of saddler in this wiki. --Va-deam (talk) 07:41, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
My issues isn't that a upholsterer doesn't makes car seats, but if a saddler makes them, too. Just because a watchmaker repairs watches, doesn't mean a jewerler can't also do that. --AndiG88 (talk) 13:54, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
