Leather Conditioner

Hello.

I need to get a good leather conditioner for my saddle. I was wondering what brands you all recommend. I have heard black rock before, and Stubben. I just wanted to know what everyone here uses.

Thanks.

I use Leather CPR and love it. It cleans and conditions the leather which is really nice especially on a time scrunch.

Black Rock is great but a little expensive to do a saddle regularly. I like Hydrophane. It penetrates so well that you don't have to dismantle your bridle to get the leather coated. They make a regular and a darkening formula but even the regular will affect the color over time. One nice feature is that it won't rot your saddle's thread.

I use Black Rock as a topping to give my tack a nice patina.

I like to use just a regular glycerine bar to clean. I LOVE Hydrophane Leather Dressing for regular conditionings. For really parched leather I like Passier Lederbalsm. You can find both on Dover's web site.

I like it too, but if you use it too much, it can make your leather really SLICK! I found that out the hard way with my husband's older Stubben, lol. It was like riding on glass! Oops! I only use it now when the leather really needs it. Hydrophane conditions well and even waterproofs, and doesn't make the leather so slick ;). Nothing works better for really parched leather than passier lederbalsm though. It really restores the flexibility and luster to the leather, without over conditioning it.
