NEW SADDLE!!what kind of cleaner/conditioner should i get?

Okay so I baught a brand new western saddle and am wondering what kind of cleaner and condition I should get. For soap I was thinking some kind of glycerine soap I know lexol makes some just thought id ask about orefered brands. And then for conditioner I was thinking this

Fitform Beeswax Leather Oil 500ml. [STO0012]

And this Oakwood Leather Conditioner 125gm-On Sale until Dec 31 2020 [STO0025]
Its beeswax which I've heard is good

Oakwood also makes a soap any one heard of the brand of eather of these as I never have



My other question is how often do you clean and condition your saddle?

Should I condition it quite a bit before riding in it alot? P.S I don't want anything that may darken leather because may saddle is already quite a dark oak colour and I don't want it any darker

Ok, well I don't know if western tack is the same as english tack when it comes to cleaning but I use and only used in 12 years of riding the effax leder balsam, which is a leather conditioner. As soap, I had a french brand from a saddler over there. I used to imported it to USA when I moved here, and I just realized ( like a month ago) that dover saddlery website has it !! And it is the only website here where I found it, but im happy I don't have to make the trip anymore im sure if I looked into some saddlery here I might see it, I just don't have the time.

This product is so so good, when I got my bridle I would clean it once to twice a week for a month, then once a week for a month, then as much as needed. Now the leather is so soft and nice, I could probably make a not with it ( but I wont)

For my saddle, as the barn I used to be here was really sandy, everytime I used my saddle I would clean it for the first couple of months, after that probably once a month or more, depend on how much I use it.
Now my saddle has 5 years on it, and it looks like new, the leather is so souple, I just love this product, I ll never change !!

I have both - western and english tack and I go with Effax Leder Balsam - Dover Saddlery. and Leather New - Dover Saddlery. . I used to use Leather New conditioner as well in pair with soap, but Leder Balsam smells SO nice, so I couldn't resist. :)

Whats the second product for that you listed kitten val?
And can the effax ledder balsam be use without soap? I always used soap before using it, but don't know if its really necessary

Second one is Leather New Soap. They also make Conditioner, which is water repellent (I have that one too, but use it only on my boots).

Frankly I don't know if you can just go with conditioner. I always clean with soap first to remove the dirt, sweat and all that bad stuff, and then use the conditioner so it would be nice and shiny.
