Re: [RC] Protection of leather saddle in bad weather - rides2far

I've been using the same OF for 18 years. It's been soaked again and
again. Just hit it with some good leather conditioner. Heck, the cows got
wet when they were wearing that leather and it didn't hurt it. :-) I'm
actually pretty bad about not putting anything at all on it for years at
a time.

Will be changing in the near future from a low-end cordura/leather 
endurance saddle to a full leather one that is definitely not low 
end.  Having been inundated a few years ago at a ride in the 
Oklahoma mountains and soaked to the bone--me and all equipment with 
water sloshing in my leather Ariats, am wondering which precautions 
I should take to protect my saddle from similar storms.  
  1.  Am thinking I'll bite the bullet and desensitize my horse to 
my wearing a full saddle-slicker that will offer some protection for 
the saddle.
  2.  What else?  I haven't seen endurance "saddle protectors" for 
bad weather in the catalogs that are along the same lines as those 
offered for the expensive leather English discipline saddles.  
Surely they are out there and I just haven't seen them?
  All suggestions welcome!

Ring'em or ping'em. Make  PC-to-phone calls as low as 1¢/min with 
Yahoo! Messenger with Voice.

I don't necessarily believe everything I think.
