When I put the saddle on and cinched it up I checked the sides where the dry spots are. I was able to fit my whole arm between the saddle and the opening by the side. So I'm sure that is the cause of the dryness. Will that change when the saddle gets broken in more?
The saddle is comfortable, and I'm probably going to be getting it (are you happy, Mary? Hehehe
But one thing is kinda confusing me...maybe it's because I've just been getting better looks at it, but it seems there is getting ALOT of marks on the saddle all of a sudden...I think it is just I've been looking at it longer, but not sure...
Anyways I'm going to have my mom call up (hopefully) and see if they'd take $700 for it...if not it's no big deal, but would be great if I could get it even cheaper than what it is now
Also, if I do buy it, what type of leather conditioners can I get to put on the saddle so it stays in good shape? What cleaners should I use? How often should I use it?
