Well, I picked up the tack yesterday. Now I have a glitch -- I forgot that part of the saddle is suede.
Not sure what to do with that. Thankfully, my friend spent 2 hours cleaning the muck off, so I just have a small cleaning job left.
Some of the bridles have chrome on them. What kind of quality, I don't know yet. I think I'll smear those with vaseline too. Won't hurt the metal I'm sure, but hopefully will help seal that nasty line between the metal and the leather.
