Something To Clean My Saddle

Ok, I have a Marcel Toulouse english saddle and I love it. It fits me and my mare so well, but I need something to clean it with. I tried a little bit of leather new on the calf block of the saddle and it made the spot a little darker so I didn't use it on the rest of the saddle. Because I don't want it to darken any, I have used lexol leather cleaner on some of my other tack and I have never liked it. I think it always leaves a oily feeling on it. I don't want to just use anything on the saddle because I looked it up on the internet and it was over $1000 dollars but I bought in on consignment for $800. Thank Goodness lol. But it has really delicate leather also. So what do you think I should use on it? I have heard of leather therapy has any of you used it? And what do you think of it?

P.S sorry for such a long post

I absolutely love the Stubben line. They make fabulous cleaning products.

My absolute favorite is:



It is a gelly like substance. LOVE IT!

They have a whole line of products out, they are pricey, but do a fabulous job!

There was a leather shop nearby that recently closed. They carried a product called "Leather Care - an Apple Brand Product." Best cleaner/conditioner I have ever found.

I am NOT a fan of Lexol. It leaves a residue that I do not like.

I used lexol on my boots for a while. It never seemed to do anything good. Then I used the Apple Leather Care on them - it took off all the residue.

I used this cleaner/conditioner on boots, saddles, tack, belts, etc. It has never changed the color (always test first - you never know). It cleans well and keeps the leather in great shape.

I don't know where to buy it (still have a supply from the store that closed down). On the bottle it says:

Manufactured by
Apple Brand
Brighton, MI
800-322-6569

It is not expensive and may be worth a shot.

I like Lexol leather cleaner. They'll all darken it while it's wet. After a day or two, the leather will completely dry and return to the normal color. I like Hydrophane Leather Dressing to condition the saddle. It only darkens a tad.

Saddle soap followed by a leather dressing. Do NOT use OIL of any description.
The stubben product is good as is the jeffries.
As a saddler myself I get a hide dressing from metropolitan leather.
The main ' food ' for leather is FAT not OIL. If it is liquid at room temperature then do not use it. My bridle is as good as the day I made it 6 years ago and will never have oil anywhere near it.

Best product on the market (if you can find it) is Blackrock. Safest conditioner I've ever come across. For regular conditioning I like Hydrophane.

I usually get Blackrock on ebay since the only tack shop around here that carries it is a 50 mile round trip.
