Thanks for the good suggestions :) Can't wait to try some of them out!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

For dry leather, I apply extra, and let it sit for 24 hours before wiping off the excess. Lovely stuff.

oh I should have said that! I do the exact same thing and it really does make a difference as to how well the leather will soak it up. :)

Yep I do the same thing. And it makes your hands softer too You can really get it into the nooks and crannies using your fingers.

Imagining life without a horse is like imagining life without food, water and air.

I love Rudy's Tack and Saddle Conditioner. It has a funny smell too it, but it does a wonderful job. My tack is soft, supple, and looks great. My friend's can't believe how clean my tack looks after using just Rudy's.

You can usually find it at any tack store but here's what it looks like:http://www.amazon.com/Misc-Shoe-Care-Saddle-Conditioner/dp/B0050EGLG8
