Horseman’s One Step® Products Ideal for Cleaning Leather and Synthetic Tack

East Longmeadow, MA – It’s widely recognized that horse sweat is one of leather’s worst enemies. Whenever sweat comes in contact with a saddle, bridle or other tack, it absorbs some of the leather’s natural oils, which can eventually lead to drying and cracking. Horseman’s One Step® Cream Leather Cleaner & Conditioner from Absorbine® has long been a staple in tack rooms across the country because the soft cream penetrates leather to release deep-down sweat and dirt, while the lanolin-rich formula conditions and preserves your tack.

However, synthetic leather, which has become a popular choice with many horse owners because of its convenience, durability and relatively low cost, presents unique cleaning challenges. Absorbine developed Horseman’s One Step Spray Leather Cleaner & Conditioner as an ideal product for easily cleaning and maintaining synthetic tack as well as traditional leather tack.

Horseman’s One Step Spray features a non-aerosol micro-spray that provides even coverage without dripping or running. The glycerin-rich formula penetrates crevices in both natural and synthetic leather to lift out dirt and grime, then dries quickly so the tack can be used or put away immediately. In addition, Horseman’s One Step Spray is pH-balanced so it won’t harm stitching.

Horseman’s One Step Spray is as convenient to use as synthetic tack itself. Use a stiff brush to first remove any hair or mud from the synthetic tack, apply a light, even coat of Horseman’s One Step with a sweeping motion, then wipe off the dirt and sweat and buff lightly to restore the shine. When applied regularly, Horseman’s One Step will keep tack conditioned and preserved for years of safe use. to watch a Horseman’s One Step video as well as videos on other Absorbine products.
