In my opinion, yes you can over oil... it will get gooey and yucky if you do it too much, or put too much on.
When you apply it, think of putting lotion on your skin.... if you just put on a nice little amount, all is well. If you put on too much you end up feeling icky and have to wipe part of it back off with a towel. Usually putting it on a cloth or towel and then gently rubbing it in is all you need. If you put it straight on the leather, it can make dark spots that won't come out for a LONG time. If you put some on with a cloth and then when it dries seems to need a little more, you can always do it again.
Cloth diapers are REALLY cheap and wonderful to keep in your tack locker for all sorts of things. You can get them cheap at walmart or target. Wash and dry them in the machine but don't use fabric softener on them. Keep them around in a large ziploc bag for first aid, wiping fly wipe on your horses face,ears, eyes, clean your tack, and I usually take at least 5 clean ones to shows with me as I find all sorts of uses for them.
