STYLE TIP: SHOW-SAD­DLE CARE

Horse & Rider - - Yourhorse Yourlife -

Step 1: Use an air com­pres­sor or a vac­uum with a brush at­tach­ment to re­move dust. If needed, wipe sad­dle down with damp cloth af­ter­ward. Step 2: Care­fully ap­ply polish paste to sil­ver, and use a clean cloth to shine. Don’t let sil­ver cleaner get on leather to avoid dam­age. Step 3: When you’re not us­ing it, keep your sad­dle in a clean sad­dle bag to avoid dust and sun ex­po­sure, which will darken your leather.

Avoid: If your show sad­dle has light- col­ored leather, avoid us­ing cer­tain sad­dle soaps that can darken leather. Ask your sad­dle­maker to see what soap they rec­om­mend us­ing with their light leather.
