Antares saddle - how to fix the damage from jeans?
I bought a "like-new" Antares saddle (had been ridden in maybe 5 times?) from someone that was leaving the barn I worked at on the east coast due to a nasty divorce. This was about 4 years ago, but now said saddle doesn't quite look so new. It's got the normal wear from riding 4-6 horses daily for 2-3 years before I went back to college, but what's really concerning me is the seat, especially the pommel. I used to ride in jeans ALL the time and only recently just started riding in breeches religiously hoping that it would stop the problem from getting worse. The seat is pretty scuffed and just not wearing "normally" (compared to my trainer's Antares [that I care for just like I do my own] or my old Tad Coffin) Oiling helps, but I'd hate to oil my saddle frequently as I've always been told this isn't good.
Do I need to suck it up and buy the Antares leather care products? What do I need to do differently? I love this saddle and it's still got a lot of life left in it, I just want to get this fixed before it gets any worse.
