    Default Breaking In Leather Horse Boots

    I have a set of leather boots for my jumper, but they are pretty stiff. They are hard to put on because of this. Is there an easy way to break them in or soften them up a bit? TIA.

    Condition or oil to your liking and store them done up rather than flat and unbuckled

    make sure that you roll the leather when you oil it! That way it can soak in and learn to roll the way you want it to

    work them back and forth in your hands when sitting watching tv or whatever.....do them up, roll them back and forth and just work the leather back and forth. should help get it loosened up, done a couple of times!
