The leather needs to breath so putting it in a container or covering it with a non-breathable material is a no-no. That is a good way to induce mold and mildew.
I would thoroughly clean it with saddle soap, being sure to get all sweat off any leather then I would give it a good oiling (or conditioning) and store it in the house or another area that is more humidity controlled then a barn would be. I would also take it out periodically, once per year at least, and clean/condition the leather. It could last and be supple indefinitely that way.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
