HAVE you decided to turn your horse out while competitions are cancelled? What have you done with your tack if so? It is important not to neglect your tack during this time and if you plan on not riding for a few weeks, you should clean and store away your tack properly.

With leather, prevention of damage is key. Before you store away your tack it is important to clean, condition and oil it to prevent damage from dirt, sweat, mildew or dryness. This should be done every few months to prevent your tack from drying out or cracking.
