Rider Half Chaps
Leather should been cleaned and conditioned regularly to keep it supple and to prolong its life. Here are some useful tips on how to maintain your bridlework:-
i) Always apply leather conditioner several times before using new tack, this will soften and protect the leather before use.
ii) Remove sweat and grime everytime the bridlework is used, using a slightly damp sponge or cloth.
iii) Re-apply leather conditioner as necessary, climate and use effect this, like watering a plant too much is as bad as too little!
iv) Depending how often you ride, you will need to dismantle your bridle completely for a thorough cleaning periodically. This will involve using leather cleaner (not saddle soap) and the re-application of conditioner.
v) Check the stitching and billets regularly, paying particular attention to where the bit is attached to the bridle at the reins and the cheek pieces, any wear should be repaired, or replaced by a reputable saddler immediately.
