Category: Tack Room

Purchase: Online from One of the only places I could find it. About $20.00 for 500ml. I used about half to treat a western saddle with two applications.

Likes: For one thing IT DOES NOT STAIN clothing or your hands!! It is a clear very thin product and not very oily at all. I bought a saddle on Ebay and didn't like the reddish color of the leather. I applied this oil 2 separate times with a disposable sponge paint brush(3 inch)and one of those smaller paint cups with the wire bar for squeezing off the excess oil. The saddle came out a lovely dark/chocolate brown. I was able to reuse the paint brush and cup for the second application. It was very easy to apply and by the second coat I was very comfortable using the product. The saddle is now nicely conditioned and there was no waste!!

Dislikes: I thought it was expensive at first but now feel it is worth the $20.00 because of how easy and clean it was to use.

Quality: I loved that there was no waste and no mess.

Summary: Very pleased. That's why I felt I had to write a review. I was afraid to try it but glad I did!
