Saddle and Leather Care

Your new Philippe Fontaine saddle is a fine example of European craftsmanship and consequently deserves the best of care.  It is made of specially treated and breathable leather which requires some maintenance. Remember, if you want lasting service from your saddle, take care of it. In return it will give you many years of riding pleasure.

Conditioning your saddle regularly will minimize bleaching from sunlight and preserve the color beneath the stirrup leathers, especially on black and dark brown saddles. Using a dust cover when the saddle is not being used will also protect and preserve the color of the leather.
