I see, that's what I figured then. Soaping my tack, in my desert climate, that often would be very bad. I had advice from the forum before not to oil my tack so often, only around twice a year. After two months of just saddle soap, I could tell it was NOT a good idea. A lot of things are very different in the desert. Hooves so dry they crack, tack falling apart from lack of moisture, and the dry air wreaking havoc on your skin are not uncommon! Moisturizer is a big deal out here. LOL.

I keep a saddle cover on my saddle now, and actually ride in it too. It has reduced my tack cleaning time significantly, and makes putting on a light coat of oil so much faster. I've got a cheapo snaffle bridle that refuses to take any oil, so apart from my reins, I don't have any other leather tack to worry about.

Sorry for the thread derail, OP

No problem on the thread derail!!

Update: I talked to the girl today and we decided that I'll buy the bit, and we'll use her bridle for the snaffle and mine for the leverage bit, purely because my bridle is newer and matches the rest of my tack, so it will look better when I show haha. She was NOT aware that I'm the owner now, but didnt have any problem with it. I told her about keeping stuff clean, and she was under the impression that the tack-guy at the barn did that, which he's supposed to do, but doesnt always, so I told her to just keep an eye on that. I will clean it every other day anyway. I overreacted a teeny bit with the not wanting to share I guess xD I'm gonna blame it on that when she told me I was just sitting here oiling and suppling up my brand new first bridle, which I had bought 2 hours prior, and I turned into a three-year old who doesnt wanna share her shiny toys lol. I've come to my senses! Thanks everyone

Aww good, I'm glad everything is working out. That sounds like a good plan!

Ride more, worry less.
