Am I about to over-oil my bridle?
Apparently my 8-year-old Edgewood didn't love the hurricane- when I went back out to the barn the Wednesday after the storm the leather was very dry and stiff to the point I thought it might crack, whereas on the Sunday before, it had been in good condition. Not sure what in the atmosphere it didn't love... I took it home for a good cleaning and oiling and it drank up oil like it hadn't been done in years. The bridle is now much more supple and feels hydrated; but when I flex it, it lightens dramatically and almost feels crumbly. I can't tell if I should leave it alone at this point or if I should give it another drink. I don't want to kill it of kindness. Thoughts?
