Good care of your leather riding boots is absolutely vital in order to keep them in top condition; if you look after your boots they will last longer!
Follow these simple steps on how to clean leather horse riding boots:
- Always clean your horse riding boots after each use
- Never leave your riding boots muddy
- To clean simply remove the dirt using a damp sponge; wait until the leather dries naturally (never put damp boots next to a radiator - this will make the leather too dry and eventually it will crack)
- Polish the riding boots regularly with normal shoe polish and keep the leather nurrished using a good leather cream
- Avoid putting saddle soap or saddle cream, these are too greasy for calfskin and will be damaging to the leather in time
- Keep your boots in boot trees, ideally bespoke wooden trees; this will prolong the life of the boots and will keep them in shape over long time
- Ask Equiclass for riding boot trees when you buy your boots, as they are individually made to measure for your boots.
