So my first and only saddle was/is a synthetic HDR Advantage AP English saddle. Key word: synthetic. I've never owned leather tack. But I just bought a Western saddle which just happens to be an older, very well made leather Big Horn saddle.
So... Anyone want to clue me in on basic leather tack care? What do I use to clean it? How do I keep it soft (oil)? How often do I clean/condition it? Also, what about care of leather English bridles (the new one I'm getting is leather)?
These are really stupid questions, I know. But like I said, all I've ever owned is synthetic tack.
Thanks in advance.
