Care and Maintenance of your Prestige Saddle
Prestige uses only premium quality leather, which needs consistent care to maintain its natural characteristics. Maintenance can be affected by the climate conditions, the season, and the place where the saddle and the accessories are stored. To maintain the leather’s softness and to prevent color fading, Prestige recommends that you clean the saddle and accessories after every use. Prestige Cleaner helps to neutralize the corrosive effect of the horse’s sweat. Apply Prestige Balsam and Prestige Oil evenly on the entire surface at least once a month, with circular movements, and let the leather absorb it.
Under normal conditions of use, Prestige saddles are covered by a 2-year warranty, while the tree and the stirrup bars come with a lifetime warranty. The warranty does not cover damage caused by wear and tear, accidents, improper use, or the use of unsuitable products. The warranty is void if the saddle parts, including the saddle tree and the stirrup bars, are tampered or altered.
For your safety, Prestige recommends that you have the girth straps checked periodically and, if necessary, replaced.
