Caring for your Tack Leather

Taking care of your tack can help to prolong its life, make it more comfortable for the horse and make it easier to use.

Here are some top tips to help you get the most out of your leatherwork:
  • Oil before use
  • If the leather is muddy, clean it first with warm water
  • Use good quality saddle soap after each use
  • Store in a cool, dry environment
  • If the leather becomes wet, allow it to dry slowly; 
    do not place over a radiator or in front of direct heat
  • Do not tie your horse up using the bridle reins.

For safety reasons, all leatherwork should be checked regularly.
