And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Mad Cow Leather Care is rated 4.8636 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tack cleaner! This is my favorite tack cleaner! It works great on all my tack and really helps to keep the leather soft and well-conditioned. It also lasts quite a while. I gave this four stars on value because it is a little pricey, but it's worth it. I do agree, though, that they have changed the scent. It now smells more floral but still works the same. I do wish though that they hadn't changed the scent; it used to smell great! However, in my opinion it's still the best tack cleaner out there!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from CHEAP PERFUME A few months ago I received my first jar of Mad Cow Leather Care from a friend and thought I'd found my go-to daily conditioner. The smell was fresh and subtle and it made my new bridle feel like butter within a few short months of daily use. When the jar ran low, I ordered two more. When they arrived, i opened one of them to take a whiff and WHAM, the formulation had been changed so that it now smells like a strong, cheap perfume. It's unclear whether that batch was mistakenly mixed by someone with a heavy hand or whether that's their updated product. I sent both jars back and am now searching for something to take Mad Cow's place in my daily tack cleaning routine. What a disappointment! I'd buy it again in a minute if the old formulation could be gotten.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I use this on all my tack. I love that it does not leave as much residue as some cleaners/conditioners.However, I prefered it when it was more of a creamier texture vs. the newer formula.Mad Cow is still my first choice and gets the job done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! Great product. It's hard to find and I love being able to include it in my monthly SmartPak order. It does an outstanding job of cleaning the gunk off my tack and never leaves it greasy or sticky and really brings out the natural shine. Plus, it smells great, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely it is my second jar. I look forward to cleaning my tack with this product. Leaves no residue and smells lovely. Once in a while I like to use leather wash before I apply the mad cow.I would like to give leather CPR a try as well but so far this is my favorite. It is a classy product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leather care product This is the best smelling leather care product I have ever used. It cleans and conditions and doesn't leave your leather feeling sticky or oily. It leaves a very nice finish on the leather. And I don't smell like leather conditioner all day no matter how many times I wash my hands!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I recommend this to anyone who wants to take good care of their leather. It makes my saddle, bridle and leather halter feel really soft. Has a great smell too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, easy to use A fellow boarder at my barn turned me on to this product. Cleans much better than any spray and is easier to use, especially for regular maintenance of tack. She says that she's had her container of Mad Cow for over a year and still has about 1/4 of the container left, and, I've seen her, she cleans her tack EVERY time she rides - so it's lasted her a really long time. So far, I've enjoyed using it - it leaves my tack clean, supple, and smelling great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Tack Cleaner! This is definitely my favorite tack cleaner for the moment. I had gotten it a while ago and it is just as great as I remembered. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a tack cleaner that makes their tack look clean and supple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOULDN'T USE ANY OTHER CLEANER...EVER!! I've been a long time user of the standard glycerine soap bars as well as spray glycerine soaps. When SmartPak started carrying Mad Cow Leather Care I decided to try it and see what the difference was. After just one use I was sold! Not only does it clean the saddle, but it conditions and softens the leather! I used to use neatsfoot oil to soften my leather, but it always left an oily, sticky residue and isn't really great for stitching. With Mad Cow I no longer have to use oil because it conditions beautifully. Not only does it leave the leather with no gross residue, it smells wonderful! I was cleaning my tack and someone asked me what kind of shampoo I had used that day!! I love this product and would not go back to the regular glycerine soaps that I have used in the past!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soap you can buy! Mad Cow Leather Care is the best for tack. I found it to be the only soap that cleans, conditions and even softens new and old leather. Mad Cow takes the squeak out of leather and helps it to stay soft for an easier break-in and longer life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I have tried lots of different brands of tack soap with varying ingredients, but I always end up coming back to Mad Cow. It keeps all my leather clean and soft without any greasy buildup. I love it and I am quite pleased to see SmartPak has started carrying it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Mad Cow Leather Care is a great smelling softer glycerin-type cleaner that also conditions. I use this on my saddle and bridle and think it provides a good alternative to traditional saddle soap. It really does smell great, which makes tack cleaning a little more pleasant!
