After starting to clean it, you can see the wear of the tooling. I'm kinda getting scared to ride in it because I don't want to wear it anymore than it already is! The fenders arnt as bad as I originally thought. At first I.thought it was missing the stirrup buckles, but then I got to thinking if they even made buckles back then. Where the buckles go is just leather string through the holes. Which of course broke when I pulled on them lol. I'm planning on replacing the concho things that are over the string holders ( don't know the technical name) nd it needs new stirrups. It come with one, but its not the original, so a new set will have to do.

When you are done cleaning it, let it sit a week before doing anything else with it. The leather is taking up the moisture and that's about how long it takes to absorb as much as it will. Considering soaping it again. If you use Feibing's yellow paste it will give it a nice mellow glow with it's conditioners. Again, wait 7 days. The saddle may not need oiling. If you decided to oil it, warm the oil in a heat proof dish and use a paintbrush. It's quick and you're not rubbing the surface again as when using a rag. Let it sit 24 hrs and then whatever may be sitting on the surface, just smear it around with a bare hand. Allow it to dry for a few days then take a soft cloth (old thin flannel) and buff it up. Have you checked to see if you can slide the stirrup leathers around the tree? Betcha can't.

Lol nope, can't move the stirrup leathers. A friend of mine does leather work, so I am going to get him to dismantle the fenders, take them off for me so I can clean them, and put them back. Hopefully he can replace the strings and holders for me as well. I don't plan on using it for a few weeks till I can get that done. I cleaned it with liquid glycerine, and then rubbed it down real good with feibings, and then buffed some off. After I get the leathers taken off and the conchos replaced, I'm going to soap it again, put another coat of feibings, and let it sit in the house.
