So I loaned my synthetic english saddle to a girl at my barn. Shortly after I realized this was a mistake because of the way she treated it. I have seen her throw it on the ground sling it around etc and she has never even attempted to wipe it down. It is not a very expensive saddle so that is why I have not taken it back yet, but right now I just want to get it clean. I know how to take care of a leather saddle I just wonder about synthetic. I've read that you need to hose them down but I am afraid in the thicker areas of the saddle it will not dry as well and cause some problems. I wiped it down a little ,not much ,but just with a damp rag. Thanks for any input.
