Iride - I don't think she means rough - just the underside which is a bit of a different texture to the outside :)

By the way, to clean the bit you can scrub it with mint toothpaste. It has a nice minty flavor that horses like, and it gets all the grime off. Just make sure you aren't using YOUR toothbrush

I just dunk the pieces of the bridle for 30 seconds, then wipe off the excess oil and hang them up for 24 hours to dry.

Makes the leather nice and supple

Oh, yes, you are right. I'd never use something rough on them! It's just feels different on touch.

Folks, I used lots of saddle soap + conditioner today, and put the english one (which IS stiff) in oil for couple hours. Will check later today how they'll all look and feel!

Ha-ha-ha! I think I'm safe. I actually clean bits every time I ride with the warm water.

I've never noticed that the mink oil darkens, although I always use darker tack. But if you are concerned, test a small section on a spot that you wouldn't notice (like the inside of the headstall). I would do that with any product if you are concerned.
