We complete a visual inspection of the saddle, underneath and on the surface. The saddle is cleaned to remove any surface dust, grit and to remove and sweat from your horse. The saddle is then treated to feed the underneath, we feed and treat the girth straps and check all the points for any corrosion. The actual surface of the saddle is treated with the Balmoral Equestrian product most suitable for the individual saddle and polished by hand to a beautiful finish.
This is the full package of tack cleaning, we will inspect your saddle, bridle, girth and horse riding boots and gently clean to remove any dirt, sweat from your horse and surface abrasives. We will then fully feed and treat the leather accordingly with a suitable product from the Balmoral Equestrian range of products. All leather will be different and in need of a different treatment. We remove the stirrups from the bars and clean the leathers separately, we will also undo the bridle parts.
Your saddle seat is normally made of a softer leather than the rest of the saddle, this means it can fade and show signs of wear quite easily. If your seat starts to go green or is showing watermarks that won't polish out, we can re dye the seat area using a vegetable based pigment dye. It takes a couple of days but the resuklts are excellent. The dye will not come off on your jodphurs either as it is sealed and waxed after the applications.
We can collect your tack from the West Midlands area. for areas outside this please call to arrange the best option.
