If the pic is the horse you intend to ride the saddle with, I think I'd dye your saddle black, as an accent to your mare's mane, tail and (Front legs?) black points. Just a thought! Post some pics when you decide what you want to do. =D

The saddle I had before this one was my very first saddle, a cheap little Wintec synthetic saddle and was black for that very reason Then I wanted to start showing and wasn't certain what discipline I was going to get into, so I needed to get a brown saddle just in case! But the black DOES look great on a buckskin, which is why I love her in her dressage saddle (and why I go "rogue" in the dressage ring with a black dressage pad!)

Make sure it was the pure Neatsfoot. It's what I use, and have always used, and it brings out a nice color and softness to my tack.

Tip for oiling- Put your saddle into the sun, and it'll open the pores up. Oil it, and rub it in well. I like to use a little elbow grease, and rub it in well with my hands. Let it soak a little, take it back into the sun to dry it well, and buff over it with a cloth.

I think Hydrophane makes a well liked darkening oil as well.
