    Leather was once worn by a cow who stood around in the rain and we compete and hunt in rain. It won't hurt it.
    But leaving it out in direct sunlight, in a hot car/trailer or jammed in a trunk when it's wet sure will.

    Just towel it off and let it dry out of the sun and away from any heat source. Give it a light coat of oil or conditioner. Any spotting will work out with use and oil or conditioner given a little time, don't over condition trying to speed it up.

    It'll be OK.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    Kill him.





    It'll be fine. It may get some water spots, but whatevs. It's not going to ruin it.
    People call themselves animal lovers, then let their dogs chase the squirrels. You're scaring the shit out of the squirrels, you schmuck!

    This could be the absolute BEST time to break it in you know, just like the bathtub method for tall boots. Can he ride in it while it is still damp? Let dry then condition?

    It will indeed be fine. Let it dry out thoroughly, inside. Then just condition/oil the leather. Cows don't melt.

    If my old Passier can survive years and years of hunting in the PNW with all that rain and occasional dunking in the Fraser River, yours will survive just fine. Dry it slowly out of the sun, and condition, as per above.

    LOL No one will get that unless they are old Griffyn, Like me!

    Back to topic, Yup saddle will be fine, Think of all the eventers who get a saddle soaking when they go down in the water complex! Dry and condition.

    I once had someone make a cake for Mr. Larkspur's birthday party. The cake lady suggested decorating it with a mountain scene and I agreed. I had to suppress my laughter when I picked it up -- a large sheet cake with white icing and a huge blue oval spread across the top. At the edge of the blue oval was a blob of green icing and a little plastic rock and plastic mountain lion.

    It rained, so we all went inside and left the cake out in the rain.

    The next day a baby bear came and ate it.

    The end.
