So how to do other people take care of their tack? This is an ANKY Salinero dressage saddle, with buffalo print leather, but no fancy stitching or detailing like the Western saddles have. Right now, I have it on a post that sticks out of the wall, and I put the cover on it, and drape the back riser and the saddle pad and the girth over, with the sweaty-bits upwards so they can dry out. This was a pretty expensive saddle and I like it a lot, so I want to take care of it properly!
Also, I read somewhere that Murphy's oil soap works as good to clean leather tack as the special-purpose stuff that comes from the tack store. Anyone know about that?
Also, my horse has made his rain coat very grubby! Do I need to clean that?
