    Default Prestige Dressage Saddle is slick as glass, what is the best conditioner....

    My Prestige Milan is slick as glass and needs a serious conditioning....was curious if anyone has any recommendations for a deep conditioner that will give it a bit more "tacky" feel.

    I've always really liked Effax Lederbalsam; applied lightly, it will make your leather tacky, though you can buff it with a soft towel to get rid of some of that. (Or your breeches will do it for you when you ride, haha.)

    I usually clean my saddle, make sure it's completely dry, and then condition it. I use my hands to apply the conditioner, and I think that lets me do a better job of getting just enough on the leather. Plus your body heat will help it soak in more quickly.

    It smells really nice and can condition your skin too.

    Passier Lederbalsam. Nothing can compare. It's a little bit more $ than Effax, but it's worth every cent.
