Re: [RC] [RC] question for those riding in leather saddles - Truman Prevatt

Or Angie tells you about this great pond with a firm bottom - no deeper than the horses knees. You believe her, go in to sponge since it's about a 100 by that point, you horse steps into a big hole in the pond and your are swimming out with a soaked saddle.

Let it dry, clean it, oil it and you're good to go to the next ride when it rains. There are some products out there now that are a combination of beeswax and oil that work really well and to seal off the wetness.

I sure wouldn't worry about a sponge.

I had just bought my new OF....paid $$$$ for it, took it to the first ride, and guess what...Yep, It rained.
Just clean it good when you get home, oil it, and put some mink oil on it. That mink oil will kinda seal it off to wetness.
