    Question Dryness/bleaching on inside of boots...help?

    My field boots are a few years old (I think 5 or 6 now) and I've noticed dry spots on the inside of them where it made contact with the saddle and the horse. I'm sure doing bareback classes on a sweaty horse didn't help!
    It looks like they are just dirty, but it doesn't come out with cleaning. When I polish them, they look great, but when the oil dries a bit more they appear again.

    While you can't see them while I'm riding, it bothers me! And when I do showmanship classes, it looks like they're dirty.

    Any advice? I have neatsfoot oil and mink oil on hand.

    If polishing your boots isn't getting you the results you want, you might want to re-dye your boots. I had that professionally done to a pair of boots and they came back looking brand new.
