-- This book is an accumulation of my knowledge, gained over 38 years in the Saddlery Industry along with my passion of Leather and Saddlery Care.
This book tells you how to care for your Saddles and Tack. As a Saddler I have seen many horror stories, a lot of these start from the store where the shop assistant doesn’t even know the basics about what type of leather the Saddle is made of!
This means if they don’t know what it’s made of, they definitely can’t give you the right advice on how to look after it!
“Even in my early days of repairing and manufacturing Saddlery, the one thing that stuck in my mind was that people sometimes do the stupidest things! For example, no sane person would go out and purchase an Italian leather Lounge suite with a price tag of say $8,000, and then come home and totally ignore the manufacturer’s instructions with regard to cleaning and preservation would they? They certainly wouldn’t warm up a pot of Neatsfoot Oil, paint it on the lounge suite, then vigorously rub it with a cake of glycerine saddle soap, would they? I bet by now you’re thinking this person might be stark raving mad!”
Here Is A Preview Of What’s Included…

- Taking proper care of saddles, bridles and other tack depends on a clear understanding of the different types of leathers used in their manufacture.
- Most saddles and bridles are now made from cow hide processed into different grades. Any hide will vary in thickness depending on where it comes from on the animal’s body.
- These days most saddles have panels made from thin vegetable tanned leather (which looks a bit like upholstery leather).
- During processing the hair is removed before it is put through a splitting machine to grade it to an overall thickness.
- Leather has two sides; a “grain” side and a “flesh” side.
- Much, Much More!
