Top tack cleaning tips:

  • For a truly thorough tack clean, take your bridle to pieces, and remove stirrups etc from your saddle
  • Make sure you clean your riding boots too - there's no point having a beautifully clean saddle then getting on board with dirty boots!
  • Don't forget about your trusty leather headcollar, it's likely to have some grease build up, and after the winter we've just had, some mud too!
  • Start by gently removing the dirt, dust and grease from the piece of tack you're cleaning: Products such as the Carr & Day & Martin Tack Cleaner Step 1 or the NAF Sheer Luxe Cleanse & Condition are specifically designed for this purpose.
  • Inspect the leather and stitching as you go, to make sure your tack is safe to ride in
  • Then condition and feed your leather, this stage is particularly important if it's been a while! Products like the NAF Sheer Luxe Leather Food and Carr & Day & Martin Belvoir Tack Conditioner Step 2 are perfect for this.
