Slippery tall boots

The last show I did, my tall boots were soooo slippery. I couldn't even hold my legs still walking! Any tips? I've already rubbed the insides with dry saddle soap (tip from my trainer)

That's weird, they usually help grip. Maybe it's your saddle

No, I have no problem with half chaps or even just jeans, so my saddle isn't the problem

Maybe just ride in them more and get some wear on the leather

Did you put anything on the inside like a conditioner? I heard that makes it slippery. Did you put the saddle soap on before or after this happened?

Stormyblues, yeah I was afraid someone would say that, I hate riding in them but I will this weeks

Ilovelucy- I forgot to saddle soap the inside before I rode, and I at aleast didn't polish the insides. My mom might have though

Sandpaper?? Seriously I don't know but if it means better control???

Maybe a really good cleaning with a rough cloth and then treat with a generic leather boot spray, rather than buff them?

Riding in them will definitely help. You can also use Sadl-Tite or this spray: Sit Tite Spray by Pharmaka: Legacy Tack to help with grip until the inside of your boots is worn a little more. I have used this spray before and it works really well.
