LEATHER CLEANING & CARE

Tips Regarding Horse Leather Cleaning & Care

Every equestrian spends a lot of time purchasing the best horse tack equipment. If you are not taking care of your leather, it will become dull and will look worn out. It is necessary to keep your horse's leather clean and shiny if you are a professional equestrian and participate in the shows. Leather cleaning is not rocket science, nor does it requires multiple products. In fact, there are products available these days, such as saddle soap, soft care, etc., that are enough on their own.

You need to be gentle while leather cleaning to not ruin the texture and fabric. If you are new to the equestrianism, here are the steps that you should follow to get the best results:

  • Daily clean your saddle leather. When leather comes in contact with the sun or sweat, it becomes hard and stiff. Making leather cleaning a daily habit will increase the longevity of the horse tack. 
  • Use lukewarm water to remove the dirt and sweat. After that use a tack sponge and saddle soap to get the shine back. Warm water will loosen up dirt particles which soap will remove. Regular sponges can be harsh on your leather, so tack sponges are best. 
  • Apply a good quality bit of scrub and conditioner using a tack sponge and rub it with your hands. 
  • Always grease your leather a couple of days or a night before the big event. Grease is not made for daily use.
