Wow, I can barely find the time to ride let alone clean my tack after each ride. I am a horrible horsey mom! But I also work full time, 2 horses, 3 dogs, a kid and a hubby, and the farm. I clean about 4 times a year. I wash pads as they get crusty or smelly, otherwise, we ride just as is. The bit... I wipe it off, but even sometimes don't have time to do that. I groom, I ride, hose my horse off, put my tack up/lay it out to dry and im done.
Sorry but cleaning tack after every ride would drive me not to ride. Just being honest.
