Saddle cleaning

My new favorite thing is to clean my saddle while it is still on my horse. My Black Rhino saddle is so heavy and awkward off the horse that cleaning it is a project. Now, when I am done riding, I loosen the girth, sponge off the horse, throw him some hay when he is cooler, and clean the saddle right there. Then, I take the saddle off and finish sponging the horse. Anyone else do this?

Nope. Saddles need to be cleaned underneath as well as on the top. In order to do that, they have to be off the horse.

Well then what do you we use a saddlepad for? They're supposed to keep the underside of the saddle clean. If they aren't doing their job, then I'm just going to ditch the pad and have that saddle ride naked.

My saddle is fleece underneath, so I just rake it to re-fluff it, but only now and then. But that only takes a minute. Most other bits I can do on Ahab; even taking the stirrups off and cleaning those. Sadly, I once undid the leather strips holding the buckstraps on, and can't figure out how to correctly re-tie them. Dressage saddles are so much less complicated!
