Removing Spots and Restoring Hard Leather

In reference to spots after saddle soaping, oiling and conditioning, these spots can be from hard spots or simply where oil and/ or conditioner failed to penetrate properly. When I am finishing a saddle with the Oak Brand Conditioner, I just continue working the conditioner in this area. Eventually most of the time spots will go away.

Hard leather: This is generally caused by leather that has lost most oil in the cells as the leather has become wet. When leather dries this, too is often due to being out under the direct sun. Leather will dry up, shrink, and curl. (See Professional Restoration Kit). The damage on some leather can be so bad that the leather will just flake apart. Some leather can be very carefully brought back to its fine luster.

Dried leather on Cinch Strap Billets Off Straps must be replaced for safety. It is very dangerous to prolong replacement. When something snaps or breaks, it most likely will spook your horse.  In so doing you risk injury to you and/or your horse.

My Leather Conditioner Tips – Since 1969

First let me say this oiling and conditioning is NOT one I recommend unless you are very careful. This is ‘The Technique ‘ I use when restoring very old leather. I sell O.B. L. Restoration Professional Kits for this use. I will state again, it is for the attentive and careful person.

Older saddles are sun tanned darker patina. Sometimes in older dried leather the dirt, sweat, and other stains may be deep into the leather. If leather is hard where you try to bend it, then before you crack or break it do the following: Oil the leather good with U82. First let it set over night then repeat the process until the leather is pliable.

Let it set another night in a temperature at 70 degrees. I use a fan which allows for even drying.

Now the time is right to saddle soap with a sponge or soft brush. Saddle soap with water running until the dirt stops working out of the leather. Before you stop oiling the leather while wet, oil evenly, watch oil move into the leather (absorbing). If this is absorbed fast, then oil again and continue until the oil stands or surface then rinse off with water.

Now, fully apply the saddle soap again.
Last, flex the leather……it should bend gently.
Now oil again and let it set.
You must keep an eye on the leather item for most of the time it’s drying and I use a fan.

Do not dry in sunlight when dry. I mix water with neutralizer and dampen all leather evenly afterwards. I rub in the first light coat of Oak Brand Leather Conditioner and let dry over night, but check on the leather periodically when dry about (12 hours ), by using a fan. Rub the Oak Brand Leather Conditioner in and start to target areas which look dryer or if a grayish cast is in the leather apply on spot until it’s gone. Now set 12 hours again, now the leather is dry and should be supple.

Buff the leather with a terry cloth. You should find your leather has a lustrous shine. You may now condition monthly depending on your climate or dryness. To condition your leather, one coating, like applying cream to your hands monthly is advised for normal use.
