conditioning half chaps
I just got a pair of smooth leather half chaps that i've had for a week and they're starting to get a bit stiff! I wear them all day long, riding 5-6 horses a day, walking through dry sand/mud, etc. In other words, they get quite a workout! Does anyone here condition your half chaps? I've always had suede in the past.
My leather half chaps take quite a beating too! Mine were very stiff when I first bought them, but after a week or so, they softened up a lot! I'm surprised you're having the opposite effect!
I clean mine every so often (definitely not as often as I clean my tack). First I get off all the caked mud with water and a rag, then I do a good cleaning with saddle soap. I've had mine for about a year and they just keep getting softer and softer. I've never oiled or used any type of conditioner on them...just "Leather New" which seems to make things soft enough.
