You could also buy a bar of glycerine and rub a layer over it every month or so. It seals the bridle's leather and prevents it from getting water damage. I quickly wipe down my bridle with the Horseman's One Step after every time I use it so it is like 1 minute instead of taking 40 minutes to clean a reallly dirty bridle. Good luck!
Thanks! I don't really want to oil it, because I've had some bad experiences with the oil darkening the leather a little and I'd rather not risk it, even if there's little to no risk
. So Horseman's One Step works well? I'll check that out! There's a bar of glycerin at my barn, so I can just use that whenever. Thanks so much!
