Caring For A Leather Saddle!

Any tips on caring for a leather saddle?!
  • What type of saddle soap, conditioner, and oil should I use?
  • How often should I clean/condition/Oil it?
  • What kind of oil works best?! (and doesnt change the color too much).
Any tips on how to keep my leather saddle in the best condition possible would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! :)

I use Passier bridle cleaner on my saddles and bridles. It is more expensive and comes in a small bottle,but you would be surprised at how long it lasts! And is smells great and keeps them very conditioned. I don't really oil my tack often,but in winter I sometimes put on a few coats of Obenauf's oil which keeps everything nice and water resistant.

Good luck!

I use Fiebings saddle soaps and neatsfoot oils. I try to clean and oil once a month. If I rode often enough Id try to clean every two weeks. Horse sweat and arena dirt arent good for leather, so I minimally try to wipe down tack with a soft rag after every ride.

I don't clean my tack as often as I should. A general clean I use Horseman's One Step. A big good clean, I use Fieblings.

I clean with Horseman's One Step cream after every ride. I love that stuff.

I don't like what oil does to leather, so I don't use it if the leather doesn't need it. When I have stiff leather to condition, I use Lexol oil.
