So, I just rummaged an old English saddle out of storage, and it's a little stiff from just sitting for a few years (but immaculately clean).
Anyone have any tips for reconditioning a saddle?
Any favorite products that you use?
I generally just use "Leather New" for normal cleaning/conditioning of my tack and everything stays nice and supple. On brand new tack, I usually do one initial coat of Neatsfoot Oil. I've used both on this saddle (and Leather CPR) with only slight softening results. Do I actually need to ride in the saddle during my reconditioning period?
