Will oil damage the padding on the browband and noseband at all?
I use the Pure neatsfoot, and it does well on my leather, but I've been careful about the padding. My noseband really could use a good dip in some oil for a little while, as it's really the only thing left on the bridle that isn't soft. I've just been running light coats over the leather buckle area with a paintbrush. The noseband kind of sticks out on his face though, and doesn't really lay very flat.
I'm also about out of the Neatsfoot, so I'm willing to try another oil... It's what I've always used, but I'm kind of curious about other oils now. What oil do you prefer to treat your tack with?
This is my Crown schooling bridle. Not the highest quality... Another reason why I'm concerned about it.
