How can I get this clean and shiny??

I was given a really cool black,tooled western saddle and I can't get it too look clean and shiny. I used the foam leather soap but it seemed to dull it any suggestions on cleaner and oil ??

I would suggest Black Rock leather conditioner or leather new. Those seem to do the trick for me. If the saddle is fading, you can use black shoe dye to blacken it.

Shoe dye risks dying the seat of your pants as well

My trainer has recommended that you look for leather stain rather than dye, as there is less risk of it turning your clothing black.

As for making your saddle shiny, I'm not sure exactly what you mean. Some leathers aren't meant to be shiny to the point that they're gleaming in the light, though there are some products that you can put on and buff with a soft brush or cloth.

Leather dye can be found at any leather crafts store if there are any in your area. I have ordered from Tandy leather many times. They have been around forever. They ship worldwide too. Tandy Leather Factory - Home
