Category: Tack Room

Purchase: I bought the Amerigo Soft Grease, or my 'Miracle Mixture' as I now call it, from Dover to rejuvenate my old saddle after realizing that a new saddle would be a bit to hard on the pockets. I paid around $30 for it.

Likes: This product really does protect and revive leather! Even though I bought it to protect my leather from sweat and light (as it's designed to to) I have found that it also softens the leather and makes it extremely easy to manage. Just for fun, I tried it on my ancient bridle (you know, the kind that has been sitting in the back of the tack locker through all seasons, completely forgotten about) and the change is amazing. One coating, and the bridle was supple and ready for work again!

Dislikes: I have to say the one thing I don't like about this product is (and mind you, I am a very impatient person), that it takes quite a long time to dry. Depending on how thick you apply the cream it can take any where from a few hours to a few days to dry. However this is a VERY small price to pay for such a good product. And thinking of prices, I thought it was just a tad expensive (it was more expensive than the bridle I used it on). But it definitely gives it all back in quality.

Quality: I was very pleased with the quality of the unit and how it exceeded my expectations. I was also excited that (at least according to the package) it uses quite a few natural ingredients, and for an environmentalist like me that is a HUGE plus.

Summary: This product has saved my around $2000 (from not having to buy a new saddle) it is well worth the $30 you pay. And it doesn't smell gross like other leather cleaners. It actually has a very pleasant aroma. I would definitely recommend this product.
