    I ride in th rain and apparently in snow fall. As long as it's safe enough for you to be in, then your horse should have no issue.

    We Western Washingtonians have perfected this art.

    I use those days to work on my bareback skills :P

    You can wipe the olive oil on with a cloth or use a paint brush. I have never worried about what color my saddle is, I don't show, so I can't answer that. As long as it is "leather" (some shade of brown) colored, I'm happy.

    Yes it might darken your saddle if you apply it too heavily.

    I don't use oil at all. My saddle has been through rain, shine, blizzard, for five years since I've had it and never been oiled. It's just fine. It'll withstand the rain.

    I use passier stuff that works really well.

    I ride in any weather, snow, wind, rain etc... Here in England if I didn't ride in the rain, I wouldn't be riding very often

    I ride in the rain, wind, snow, even been out in a thunderstorm half way up a mountain.

    I second riding bareback if you can. I use leather cleaner and conditioner in one. Forget the brand, its amber colored liquid in a spray bottle. Works great, and I have tack 10+ years old that has been used heavily(and soaked in water/sweat frequently) that is still in great shape. I only treat it if it has gotten dirty, wet, sweaty or looks dry.
