The guy at the tack store gave us Neatsfoot oil(pure) to use on my new saddle. It is an older Crosby(thread here if you want to see: I got a saddle!! ) and while the leather isn't really dry, it does feel like it could use a good conditioning. Is this the right product to use? I have gotten mixed reviews on it.
Next order of business, I want to make a mounting block but I'm not sure how. My horses are 15hh and 16'3hh, how tall should the block be? I'm.....sorta bouncy I suppose, lol! I read on some website to use the peices of wood that are used to make the sides of staircases but I can't remember where I saw that. Does anyone know? Or can you just tell me another way to do it? Thanks!
Finally, I am not sure how to remove the stirrup leathers from my saddle :(. There isn't really any room to slide them off and the stirrup bar won't more up or down :(. Help!
Thank you to anyone who can help answer my questions!!
