As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Effax Leather Balsam is rated 4.7286 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality I bought the 50ml Tub and it's highly effective. Used it on a brand new piece of tack and it became very supple in as little as two uses. There is a mild waterproofing effect, you notice it when you wash your hands after applying the product to tack; probably from the beeswax. Smells unique, something I would personally associate with expensive or new tack. I would suggest buying the larger tub if you're going to be conditioning all of your tack. The smaller tub is perfect for bracelets, collars, spur straps, etc. It might last me 30 applications for these smaller sized leather products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the leather really supple It's a great easy to use conditioner in a tub with a screw on lid- which is great. It makes the saddles and bridles nice and soft, and isn't ever sticky.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from love it but not great for regular use I wish effax would create a good cleaner. This is good for occasional use but not good for a 9 year old to use on a regular basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Saddle This product keeps your saddle supple and nourished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product for your expensive tack! I have used this product for years now on all of my tack. It keeps the tack soft and looking like new. It prevents cracking and harm from rain and sweat. This is the best product on the market that I have found to help in the care of your expensive tack. This is not a daily cleaner but one you would use every now and again. It works great on dry winter hands too!!
