So basically I'm doing a show in May. It's on a riding school horse (I don't have my own) so my aim is to look dashing for the day - doesn't have to be long lasting since I don't always get to ride that horse, other people ride her too, and anyway she's not mine, however much I would like that.
I was looking at buying this: Decathlon - MAINTENANCE-REPAIR MAT-TOOLS leather - fabric care grease FOUGANZA - Leather Grease 150ml FOUGANZA - NOURISHING leather.. First things first: this may sound silly, but will it make the saddle slippy (I don't want to fall off!)? I'll probably be cleaning the tack on the day, since I'm just coming back from holiday the day before. Talk about bad timing.
Will saddle soap be a good alternative? I'm not awfully keen on it, since it's more expensive and the one time I have used it, the tack looked pretty much exactly what it looked like before I cleaned it, and I want the tack to have a shine to it.
