View Full Version : I need help darkening my saddle... Please!

My saddle (a Duett) is beautifully dark on the flaps, but the knee rolls and the seat will not darken -_-. Any suggestions? They are a newmarket color, as my whole saddle was oriinally; it has now become a dark, almost havana, brown. Please help!

I'm a fan of regular extra virgin olive oil for darkening tack. Warm some up in a bowl just so it's lukewarm, take a paint brush and apply a coat onto your tack. Within one or two oilings everything will darken right up!

neatsfeet oil will darken your tack. White or clear conditioners will take longer. Just riding in it often to break it in will also help as it ages. hope this helps!
