To keep your saddle and bridle in a good condition, you need to maintain them regularly. BR has an extensive line of maintenance products that you can use for this. Perhaps not the nicest task to do, but leather maintenance extends the life of your leather items. First you remove the dirt and sweat with a leather cleaner or leather soap, then you use a leather conditioner or leather balm to care for and protect the leather. BR also has a special detergent for your sheepskin half pads and protective covers that preserves the properties of the medicinally tanned sheepskin.
