Leather Tack + Rain
Do any of you ride in your leather tack while it's raining? I don't have access to an indoor, and I don't want to stop training because of the weather. However, I don't want to ruin my tack either.
I clean and condition my tack regularly, so it's in good shape right now...
Here in Florida... Rain can be an every day... one minute sunny... one minute rain kinda place. That being said... There has been many time I have ridden in the rain. I just always make sure to hang it so that it can dry and then oil it afterwards. And I have had some of my tack for over 10 yrs.... still in exellent shape.
If you oil your tack after it gets wet it will help get the rain drops out. There is also tack cleaner that makes your tack water resistant.
Thank you both for your responses, I'm feeling better about my options :)
I have used it. It's like a leather conditioner that helps when it gets wet. I don't really know how well it works, I just used it once because I ran out of other tack cleaner. I can't for the life of me remember what it's called.
But from what I found oiling works the best.

Okay. I'll just try to oil it really good afterwards and see what happens!
I just clean and condition/oil after I get caught out in the rain.
