I have a welsh pony/qh mix mare who in a western saddle is smaller then semi qh bars so I hope it'll fit her but I'm assuming it will because all though she's a tub she's got a small back. Same goes for my gelding as well.

Truthfully I'm not sure but *cross fingers* it will

I've applied about 5 coats of oil and it is still sucking it up. Should I keep going til it's not sucking it up anymore?

Yes, let it absorb as much as it can, then stop oiling. Let it sit overnight, then buff off any remaining oil that hasn't absorbed.

If it feels a little tacky after buffing, set it outside in the sun for a couple of hours. That will dry up any residual oil.

Can you tell this is something I've done more than once?

Thanks for all your help SR. I definitely thought I was doing it wrong bc it kept sucking it up in minutes after every coat. I let it sit over night and am gonna try another coat. I would like to try and ride in it later so hopefully it'll be dry by then.

You're very welcome.

I love the older, well made saddles, and Stubbens especially. There's nothing quite like bringing back an older, neglected, well made leather saddle.

Hope it fits your girl, and you like it.

I'd love to see a pic of it on your horse. :) I think folks with Stubbens have their own little unwritten club. Kind of like my husband and his '74 Bronco. We can come across a total stranger driving a classic Bronco down the road and they wave at each other like they've known each other for years. LOL!

I've found there is very little gray area with Stubbens. People either love 'em, or they hate 'em.

They're not cushy saddles and were never meant to be, but danged if they aren't beautifully made and last just about forever!

I tell people if they don't like a firm seat they're not going to like a Stubben, especially an older one.

I've used a full 16 oz bottle of neatsfoot and it's still sucking it down. Omg it'll never end!

So I was told not to 'over oil' the saddle. So, should I stop? She's still sucking oil but the leather color is pretty dark now from me oiling it so much.
