Leather is Like Fine Wine

Leather is one of the best materials there is, and growing up riding horses I automatically prefer leather over synthetic.

But riding (and storing your leather pieces) is hard on them.
It's important to clean and condition them to keep them in the best possible shape.


 The company Leather Nova was nice enough to send me three different bottles of products to take care of my leather.
I tried them out on the saddle I prefer to use every single time I ride.
They sent leather cleaner, leather cleaner/conditioner, and 2-in-1 Leather Conditioner and Cleaner.


These products worked so well (& I loved the fact that they sent clothes and sponges to use with their products). They didn't leave any of the nasty residue that some cleaners do. They left my saddle clean, shiny, and supple. Things that are so important to me because a good saddle is necessary if I'm going to ride. (Check Willow out in the background!)

 This was an out-take but I just couldn't help but share this picture because Willow looks so pretty running around!
I think she thought because I got the saddle out, it was time to ride.
 I used this picture to show you how clean and fresh the side of my saddle looked after using Leather Nova.
It hasn't looked this good in a while!

 Here's another shot after cleaning my whole saddle, I should've taken a before picture!

And one last shot of my girl, she was loving the fresh air and sunshine!

Leather Nova cleaner can be used on any leather product...not just saddles!
I've used them on our couches, my boots, and even C's belts.
I suggest giving them a try because you won't regret working with them.

Until next time. . .

  1. Great review! Do you know if these products work on car leather, too? I've been looking for a good leather conditioner for my seats.

    1. I definitely think they would work on car leather, I used them on our leather couches and that's very similar! I would just test anything I used on them on a small part before I cleaned the whole thing just to be sure :)

  2. Aww I love the picture of your girl! When I was younger, I begged my mom to put me in riding lessons and I always said yes to an invitation to slumber parties where I knew the girls had horses :-)

    1. Aw, I totally know where you're coming from! I finally got my daddy to give in and get me my first horse when I was about 12 and now I have 6! They're such amazing animals and have taught me so much!

  10. People can use this leather conditioner on their car seats,sofa, boots, saddle, or anything else that's made out of leather.

    Leather is skin after all, so it needs nutrients. However, whether the skin of a living mammal receives its nourishment from the body, this is not the case with leather. So you need to condition your leather. Otherwise, it can easily dry out and crack. Or conversely, it could become damaged if it absorbs to much water.

    That's a beautiful horse BTW. What breed is it?
