I recently got some Kerrits F-Low Rise Performance Riding Tights and I find them VERY comfortable. My only issue with them is that they are slippery in the saddle. It may be because I am so used to riding in jeans and spoiling myself with their non-slippery-ness? Has anyone else had this problem with riding tights? I realllyyy don't want to get another pair, I just bought these Kerrits. Any solutions? Is it just something I need to get used to? Thanks!

Try putting some Passier Lederbalsam or Effax Grip Stick on your saddle and see if that helps. I do this every day of my life :) But I find all knee patch breeches to be slippery and only like full seats - try some, you might love them.

We use Passier Lederbalsam on our slick polo saddles in games, because we can't wear chaps. But many players just seem to get along without it. My two favorite saddles are full suede. I love the extra grip that the Passier product or the suede gives.

I don't have my own saddle, I use the barn's, so I don't think I can put stuff on them. Thanks though!

The stuff does no harm to saddles and it wears off. Of course saddles need to be cleaned regularly anyway. You might check with them.

My daughter's boss said the saddle tacky cream is the same as what tennis players use on their racket handles for extra grip and the tennis product can be less expensive. I'm going to try it.

Good luck. Hope you can give it a try or find another solution.

It is leather conditioner, it's good for the saddles!
