To ensure that your horse gear lasts for a long time, it is important to take proper care of it. In this blog we will discuss how to clean horse gear from Equestrian Stockholm so that your products have long durability.

Let's start with horse blankets. First, make sure to brush off any loose dirt or debris from the blanket before washing it. You can wash your horse blanket in a washing machine with a gentle cycle and mild detergent. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners as they can damage the fabric. We recommend hanging the blanket to dry and avoid using a dryer as the heat can shrink the fabric and damage any waterproof coating. If your horse blanket has any Velcro or other fasteners, be sure to close them before washing to avoid damaging the blanket or the washing machine.

Saddle pads are another important part of your horse gear. You can wash Equestrian Stockholm saddle pads in a washing machine at 30 ° with a gentle cycle and mild detergent. To protect the metal badge, flip the saddle pad inside out and preferably use a laundry bag. Be sure to avoid bleach and fabric softeners and hang the saddle pad to dry. Avoid using a dryer, as the heat can shrink the fabric and damage any embroidery or other decorative details. Additionally, brushing off any loose dirt or debris from the saddle pad before washing can help to prevent damage to the fabric.

Leather tack requires special care to ensure its longevity. Start by removing any dirt or sweat from the leather with a damp cloth. You can then apply a leather cleaner or saddle soap with a damp cloth, working it into the leather in circular motions. After applying the cleaner, wipe away any excess with a clean, damp cloth. Apply a leather conditioner to keep the leather supple and to prevent cracking. Avoid using too much water when cleaning leather, as it can damage the material.

In addition to cleaning your horse gear and tack, proper storage is equally as important for maintaining its longevity. Store your horse gear in a clean and dry place, avoid exposing it to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures. Avoid folding leather tack as it can cause creases or cracks in the leather.

By following these tips for cleaning and caring for your products from Equestrian Stockholm, you can ensure that your products will last for many seasons to come.
