Oiling my bridle

Last night I finished oiling my tack by putting one final — and rather generous — coat of oil on my bridle. This morning I decided that although the cracks are (of course) still present, the bridle and reins are supple enough now to leave off applying any more oil.

In fact, I am rather happy with the results of oiling my bridle. The smaller cracks are not as easily visible, and the larger cracks (which are fewer and not as bad as I initially thought) don't look like they'll go any further for the time being.

Although I will still look for a new bridle and reins, I am pleased that this one turned out well enough to last me for a while longer, and perhaps even stand in as a backup once I find a new set!
