new saddle/squeeky

I just bought a new western saddle and it is very squeeky. It does not bother me when I ride alone, but when I ride with others it is very hard to hear. Does anyone have suggestions that are safe for the saddle to stop the squeeks? Thanks!

Baby powder. You need to find the kind made with talc, not corn starch. I had to go to a pharmacy to find the right kind. Turn your saddle over and get the powder under everything then turn it upright and brush away the excess.

I don't know why but it lasts forever.

Thanks, I did use powder but my bet is I used the wrong kind. It did help, maybe I just need to do it again and maybe it just takes time and a lot of riding..

I tried the corn starch powder once and it did nothing. It only took one time with the right powder to work. I think it's the talc in the real stuff that makes it work. Any other method I used, including a lot of oiling and riding, always left some squeak but the powder method did the trick.

Thanks iridehorses, I am going to do just that with the talc, I know too much oil is not good for saddles and I did oil the underside but it didn't help that much.
