Show-Saddle Care

As winter approaches, it's the perfect time to clean up your show saddle.

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.
