I am thinking I am going to get some of the CPR since I have heard so many good things about it. I am still wondering about how everyone cleans their saddles though. I always thought soap had to be rinsed. Ugh so confusing!
I keep it covered and am very careful with it, but today it really took a beating
not only did my friend scratch it but after that she was putting it on another horse and I think he spooked after she had put it on(I'm sure you had the whipping wind there today too) and I heard my saddle hit the ground
, it didn't suffer any scratches or anything from that tho.
I just got the soap container out and it doesn't say anything about rinsing it, just to "dampen a cloth or sponge. Rub lightly over soap to produce a lather. Then apply to leather surface. When dry polish with a soft cloth for a light luster. "
