Saddle Grip Sticks and Sprays?
I hope this is in the right place :P
Well I was reading some things on those rub on sticks and sprays that help you grip the saddle. Call it cheating, if you will, but I ride some greenie horses occasionally, and I think it wouldn't hurt to have a little help, especially when I ride in my SUPER slippery tall boots. The leather on saddles is just..BAH. I don't know what it is, because with and without half chaps my lower leg is like a rock. It doesn't move, but when I put on the tall boots, it just slides all over the saddle. Its getting better, but I don't ride in them enough since they're only for showing.
So which is the best:
Guter Sitz Haft Creme - Quality Tack at Outlet Prices - VTO Saddlery
Sadl-Tite - Quality Tack at Outlet Prices - VTO Saddlery
Effax Leather Grip Stick - Quality Tack at Outlet Prices - VTO Saddlery
Sporty Haft-Spray - Quality Tack at Outlet Prices - VTO Saddlery
Help please :]
Do you use half-chaps? If not, try those. I have never heard of something you spray on.
Oh..I saw you mentioned half-chaps..nevermind lol : P
I've used Sadl-Tite & Sporty Haft-Spray. Of the 2 I'd go with Sporty Spray, hands down! It's almost not a competition... Sporty spray goes on before every XC course :)
I spray it on the inside of my tall boots - you can see it a little bit, but it'll wear off in a few days (if you don't clean them to take it off.)
Cool, thanks! :]
Here is a discussion about the spray and how to use it (starts on bottom of 1st page). http://www.horseforum.com/english-ri...jumping-70753/
Although I don't think one really needs it (unless for the show).
I use Guter-Sitz (or however it is spelled). I just dab a little bit(in several spots) over where my calf touches the saddle. My leg is always so much better when I use it too!
My coaches swear by it.
The more you use your boots though, the less slippy they can get, depending on the boots.
