    Okay, so idk what it is, but mares have just always smelled like hormones, or something, and have been unpleasant to ride not just during menstruation, but in general they get snarky.

    I was up at my uncles farm recently and found an old bridle. He said I could have it to take home and clean up. I was just wondering what the best way to clean it was. I have leather softener for the harder, cracked bits and also saddle soap but what is the way that will get the best results??

    My horse is grey and always comes in covered with mud! It takes me so long to get him mud free again, my friend suggested buying a no - fill turnout rug to keep on him in summer, mainly to keep him clean!
