Cool What do you use to clean your tack?

Just wondering, I'm in the market for a new cleaning and conditioning system for my tack. My old routine just isn't cutting it.

Please share your favorite products and routines!

I only use the blood of my enemies. But seriously what kind of tack? Different tack requires different care.

Oh that's my favorite!! Every day after Indie and I come home from our conquest and raiding, I just pull out the rag I used to wipe off my sword and her hooves and wipe it all over the tack set.

Does wonders, and really gives it that Halloween festive glow.

Although when blood is off hand, for my synthetic tack I like to throw my bridles and halters and reins in the washer on a gentle cycle, the saddle just gets a water wipe down and left to dry. As for leather, you can get leather cleaner and what not, although my saddle is nothing special so I just wipe it down with a clean rag and try to keep it oiled. I really only do "heavy" cleaning once a year though, but it gets routine wash down once a week, and my halters/bridles/reins (all synthetic) washed once a month :) For my snaffle bit, I just wash it with hot soapy water after every ride (make sure to rinse too!) and my hackamore just gets wiped down with a wet rag, and some oiling on the leather noseband.

Fiebing's Saddle Soap < Leather Cleaner < Horse Tack|Dover Saddlery. following by Effax Leder Balsam < Leather Conditioners < Horse Tack|Dover Saddlery. . But I'm thinking about trying a different soap (heard lots of nice about Passier). I clean once / month or so.

I use blue magic leather cleaner and blue magic leather conditioner. It made my used saddle look brand new

I don't care for saddle soap it leaves a filmy scum on my tack- I enjoy most leather oils. I LOVE leather CPR conditioner! And my CPR has lasted me a long time as well.

Once a year, in the spring, everything gets conditioned. So most of the year, I just wipe off the dust with water.
