If you're too scared to soak leather in oil - like I was! - you can commit to oiling it after every ride for a spell, too. I bought a gorgeous and spendy CWD bridle that was a) the wrong colour and b)quite stiff. I cleaned it with quality cleaner after ever ride,then oiled it with neatsfoot. A trick I. Learned was to warm up the oil just a bit and use a brush to "paint" it on, let it sit for a moment, then rub it off with a cloth. Please keep in mind though that if you're using warn oil, you want it to dry out before you use it - another use for warm oil is to stretch leather.
