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

Yes :] I ride in half-chaps. And my legs as solid as can be when I ride with half chaps. As well as without. Maybe a little less, but not enough to really effect me too much. I just get slippery when I ride in my tall show boots. But even when I ride in half chaps, maybe this could help.

Just curious.

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 :)

Thanks, that helps narrowing it down! Ive heard the spray is so much easier to put on and leaves no residue? Can you see it on the saddle?

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.
