Favorite ways to break in new harness??

So what are everyone’s tricks to break in new leather?  I have a brand new Walsh, creakn’ stiff, russet quick hitch & it seems as though it is going to be an ordeal.  I am all for short cuts in a case like this:-)

Thanks!

    The best thing for new leather (besides lots of sweaty horses) is Tanners Oil. I paint it on both sides with a brush. I will sometimes use a hole punch to enlarge the holes so you don’t have to fight with the buckles on the girth, etc.
