Quick question- I use a dressage saddle, and the whole underside of the saddle is on the saddle pad. There is no part of the saddle that touches the horse directly (except the girth, which in my case is fleece). Is this recommendation thinking of another kind of saddle?
It always seemed a little overboard to clean the saddle so frequently when it never touches the horse and only seems to get dirty from dust. (I do wipe off the dust with a dry cloth after each ride)
Sorry if I'm hi-jacking the thread... I've been borrowing a Wintec for the past several years, and now that I've bought my own horse I'm starting the process of shopping for my first leather saddle. I'm a but clueless about proper tack care
