When choosing leather cream, you should keep in mind that Barefoot treeless saddles are usually made from nubuck leather or soft leather. Nubuck leather is sanded on the grainy side which gives it its peach skin texture. Soft leather has a smooth, soft surface which is very pliable and makes you feel like you’re sitting on a cloud. 🙂
Both types of leather are open pore and therefore very flexible and pliable which enables the saddle to adjust to the horse’s back without compromising stability, comfort and quality. You should not use grease or waxes to clean nubuck or soft leather as this will clog the open pores of these leathers. With Barefoot’s own leather care products, there is no such worry.
This leather creme conditions and nourishes all types of leather, and it is especially good for open-pour leather. Used regularly, it protects the leather and keeps its elastic. The jar has 200 ml of cream and a suitable sponge.
