Question How do you get sweat stains off your english saddle?

We bought a new english saddle for my daughter for Christmas. She has kept it oiled, and actually oiled it for a show about a week earlier than her lesson on a hot day. She has a sweat stain from her butt smack dab in the center about 4 inches around. She cleaned it when we got home and oiled it, but you can still see it! Any suggestions?
Help! It makes me ill when it's so new and so pretty!

Wow, I've never had sweat stain my seat to the point it wouldn't evaporate. Sorry to hear that. Most well made leather saddles don't hold stains like that.

Good luck figuring out how to get it out. Can you call the manufacturer and get their recommendation?

Sorry, speedracer, but I've seen it happen a few times. The proplem is that leather quality varies from skin to skin, no matter how expensive the saddle. And with the increasing use nowadays of softer leathers (ie. Less dense) it'll happen more regularly.

I'm presuming the saddle is brown? There's no way of getting a stain out without compromising the leather in some way. Bear in mind all the leather will patina over time and probably darken so eventually the staining will blend in. It's only cosmetic anyway, and no-one's ever going to see it when the saddle's ridden on. Don't worry about it :)

Thanks for the help. It is a good quality saddle, I was afraid we wouldn't be able to get it out when we tried the leather cleaner/oil method. It is brown, and hopefully it will darken and blend in. It just makes me sick, when it's new! Thankfully no one will see it, you are right about that.
