Cleaning/Oiling a saddle that's older than dirt?
Well, maybe not older than dirt, but older than the ages of Lacey and I put together!
I just bought a really old, I believe the seller said 1952, Big Horn "Cowboy" saddle, and it needs to be cleaned/oiled. I don't have it yet, but with any luck I should have it within the next week or two and I'd like to be prepared. I'm not sure what the seat is made out of but I do know that it seems to be a different material than the saddle, I think...
Also, I know nothing about cleaning/oiling saddles so any tips or tricks anyone knows are completely welcome.
I can't seem to get the pictures I have loaded on to photobucket so further id-ing will have to wait for now, but that''s alright.
Thanks ahead of time!
