How do you take care of your saddle so it lasts longer? Tips for taking care of leather goods/tack in general?
it depends on how much you use your saddle & the climate. don't clean it too often but don't let it get extremely dirty either. i like to wipe mine with a soft, dry cloth after each use. don't use water as it will dry the leather. condition it as often as it needs & oil it once a year. best way to make it last is don't let it get wet, keep it in a stable climate, and keep the dirt off of it.
