So many fun Blog Hops lately! I decided to hop on (har har) Equestrian At Hart’s hop about the cleaning products we use. So she asked:
In this weeks blog hop lets talk about what cleaning products you use on your tack and why?
Now, I have to admit I don’t clean my tack too too often but when I do, it’s kinda like this:
Anyways, on recommendation from my saddle fitter, he recommended I use Effax Ledercombi to clean my saddle. I use Effax on my bridles too as its super easy to just do a quick swab over everything, if I remember to that is, after I ride. For really deep cleans on my bridles and such I’ll use castille soap.
As a conditioner I use either Oakwood Conditioner or Passier Liederbalsam though I prefer the Oakwood. The Passier isn’t as conditioning/moisturizing as I’d like it to be, doesn’t seem to soak in as well. The Oakwood really absorbs into the leather and has a nice finish. I think I might have to try the Higher Standards conditioner and tack cleaner though as I’ve heard great things.
I’d like to give a go at making my own tack soap using Bay with Chrome’s recipe! Gotta find me some bar glycerin soap…
Thanks EaH for the fun blog hop! 🙂
Actually, would anyone be interested in doing a Blog Hop about the other physical activities other than riding that you do to stay in shape? Or rather, the physical activities you do to stay in/get in riding shape?
I’ve seen a lot of posts with people talking about getting back into the gym or having more healthy habits so I thought this could be fun topic to share about. Could be a fun somewhat non-horsie Hop. What do you guys think?
