When I get new jumper tack, I always oil with neatsfoot as I just love the suppleness that comes as a result.
For some reason, I never do this with dressage tack, I remember being told it was bad, but is it really?
Im not going to drench the thing in oil, but I dont want to ruin perfectly good tack. does oil make the black dye come out or something?
thanks in advance.
*bonus question: nameplate on dressage saddle yes/no?
Soak the underside of your flaps, that's the rough grain the will soak in. The top grain can absorb very little, so I usually just brush a light coat and then buff with a dry cloth.
Mink oil is my favorite. I have tack from the 70's that I still use every day that's treated with mink oil
