Congrads you will love it.

Have a Duane Latimer and don't know why I waited so long to get one. A reining friend advised me and I am glad I took his advice.

Nice folks at Okootooks also call it a lady reiner. It only weighs 32 lbs. and I can ride in it for hours. Had a little silver added and it became my show saddle. Great for older lady with older horse.

An hour spent in the saddle is never wasted! Winston Churchill

Fiebing's Saddle Soap, the stuff in the little yellow can. Will not darken the leather, just wet a sponge, work the cake into a lather, and apply. Let it sit until it dries, then buff with a soft cloth or shammy to get the film off. Makes it very shiny and regular use will soften the leather like an oil would. I have a bunch of breastplates and bridles in that colour that have suffered no ill effects. Only thing it is it really a pain in the tush to get the film out of the tooling. I use a soft toothbrush and 50 million q-tips.

ETA: Don't use it on rough out leathers or suede as you can't buff it out and it can stain, as it uses water.

Lexol neats foot is a non-darkening leather dressing that I use. My Bob's was very light and has darkened some naturally, but this dressing does not darken it. I spray on the cloth first not directly on the saddle, especially the fenders for better control.

I emailed the lady I bought the saddle from and she seems to agree with the ladies on her. Here is her responce...

I use Lexol cleaner and conditioner. They come in orange and brown spray bottles but I always use a sponge and clean rags instead of spraying onto the saddle directly. It's hard to control the amount that's going on and it's never even when it's sprayed. I was taught long ago to just pull up a chair (upside down feed bucket) and take the time to care for our tack. Saddles and bridles cost so much these days. They really are an investment.
