    Default Oiling a Bobby's bridle

    Do Bobby's bridles accept oil well? I already have a pair of dark havanna reins and would like to buy the bridle as well (used, but a lighter color). I would like to be sure I can oil it to match the reins... Anybody with any experience with this? TIA!

    Both of my Bobby's have oiled up nice and dark. They were both the cheap ones (like $120), and it took a while, but they got there. Great choice for the price, IMO!!

    I picked up a Bobby's bridle after someone moved out of the barn and left it behind, so I don't know if it's the "good" Bobby's or the "cheap" Bobby's. I'm inclined to think it's the good kind because it's butter soft and takes oil really well.

    So yeah, the one I have oils up nicely.

    ETA: Mine was the dark havana color to begin with, so I don't know if the lighter colors would oil up to match the dark colors.
