Tack Care

DO NOT DIP ANY TACK IN OIL!

The reliability of all tack depends on proper maintenance and care. Quality is no protection against abuse, misuse, or neglect.

Never use hot water to clean tack as it has an unwanted drying effect. Instead, use a good glycerine saddle soap on a clean sponge, rinse it often and change the lukewarm water very frequently. Use oil sparingly and only when it is really needed. Overuse of oil can damage the leather. In America over-oiling seems to be a habit that is hard to break. If you feel compelled to oil your new tack, please do so in moderation. If you want dark tack, buy dark tack. Remember, leather should always be clean and free from excess moisture before applying oil.

Examine your tack from time to time for signs of excessive stretch or wear, enlarged buckle holes, extreme dryness and damaged stitching. Check also for cracked or bent hardware.

NEVER STORE TACK IN A HOT, DRY PLACE

NOR IN A COLD, DAMP PLACE!
